The Bachelor of Arts degree is offered in subjects or fields of study which relate to cultural, social, and scientific achievements, supplying knowledge of human and individual potential. The BA is the traditional liberal arts degree, which emphasizes a broad and intensive background in the arts, humanities, and sciences. Students who wish to prepare themselves for advanced study, particularly in traditional liberal arts areas, should consider matriculating in the Bachelor of Arts degree.
The Bachelor of Science degree provides students with a background in the arts and sciences and potential for entry into a variety of professions or for advanced study. The degree primarily is designed for those students who seek to gain specific knowledge and skills required for careers in one of many disciplines.
Majors and Minors provide opportunities for students to specialize in areas of interest. Students may further specialize with concentrations associated with the major. Some majors and minors are specific to degree programs. Although majors and minors are offered in the same discipline, selection of a major and minor in the same discipline is not allowed in meeting degree requirements. Students may select a major and minor in similar disciplines provided that no more than two courses (6 credits) overlap between the major and the minor. A major that requires in excess of 48 credits, including required support courses, do not require the completion of a minor.
