Bachelor of Arts Distribution Requirements

One course must be in Ethical Reasoning and one course must be in Diversity. (May not "double dip" with the General Education Core Ethical Reasoning/Diversity Requirement, the BA Distribution Historical Investigation Requirement, or the BA Distribution Social & Behavioral Science Requirement.)
  • Additional Natural Science
    In addition to the five credit hours (lecture + lab) required for the campus general education Natural Science requirement, choose one additional course for a minimum total of 8 credit hours in the natural sciences. One course must be in the life sciences and one course must be in the physical sciences.
  • Additional Social Science

(May not "double dip" with General Education Core Social & Behavioral Science or the BA Distribution Historical Investigation requirement.)
