Arts and Sciences Majors
Arts and Sciences degree programs are designed for students who want to concentrate their studies in the arts and sciences, perhaps supplementing them with business courses that strengthen their professional education and career opportunities. Arts and Sciences programs include both Bachelor of Science (Mathematical Sciences and Actuarial Science) and Bachelor of Arts (English, Global Studies, Health Studies, History, Liberal Arts, Media and Culture, Philosophy, Public Policy, Spanish Studies and Sustainability Science) degrees.
All students pursuing an Arts and Sciences degree program (BS and BA):
- Must complete the Business Studies Minor or second major in Business Studies (BSM).1
- May take no more than 30 credits in business, including courses in the Business Studies Minor or Major.
All students pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree must:
- Achieve intermediate competency in a foreign language. Most students do so by completing an Intermediate II course. Students must meet with the Chair of the Modern Languages Department to discuss their language proficiency and required coursework.
Students pursuing the BA in Liberal Arts are not required to complete the Business Studies Minor or Major.
