Undergraduate Programs

Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science

The Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degree programs allow students to select from a number of areas and provide preparation for high school teaching (if secondary education is elected as a minor), graduate school and fields of endeavor related to the major area of study.

The decision as to whether to award the degree of Bachelor of Arts or the degree of Bachelor of Science shall be consistent with the standards in the student’s major field as determined by the major department.

In cases where students with double majors are eligible for a BA, BS and/or BSE degree, the student will select which major department will make the decision regarding which degree the student will be awarded.

Students are advised to consult with their department chairperson or major advisor early in their academic career, but not later than the end of the sophomore year, in order to select a major and to be certain that course selection will allow graduation with the desired degree.

Students should be aware that not all courses are offered in the evening. Students who are only able to enroll in classes 4 pm or after should consult the appropriate department chairperson for information about the availability of evening sections of courses required in a specific major, concentration and/or minor.
