When "double dipping," the minimum grade required is the higher of the two. The additional distribution requirements are as follows:

  • Additional Ethical Reasoning/Diversity
    In addition to the three credit hours required for the campus general education Ethical Reasoning/Diversity requirement, choose one additional course for a minimum total of 6 credit hours in the Ethical Reasoning/Diversity. 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
    In addition to the three credit hours required for the campus general education Social Science requirement, choose one additional course in any discipline for a minimum total of 6 credit hours in the social/behavioral sciences. (May not "double dip" with General Education Core Social & Behavioral Science or the BA Distribution Historical Investigation requirement.)
  • Historical Investigation
    Two courses in Historical Investigation. (May not “double dip” with the additional Social & Behavioral Science for the BA Distribution requirements.)
  • Foreign Language
    All BA degree candidates must satisfactorily complete (D- or higher) four semesters of a single foreign language, or they must earn an achievement examination or placement test score sufficient for placement in foreign language classes at the 300 level or above.
