College of Liberal Arts

Nonteaching Programs

There are two patterns of programs: 1) the area (maximum of 45 hours, of which at least 12 are in courses outside the major College of Liberal Arts school or department), and 2) the major (24 to 45 hours). Each school or department specifies whether its major must be accompanied by a minor. This major or area provides the depth necessary for admission to a graduate school as well as for a well-rounded liberal arts education.

The number of hours required for teacher education programs may vary from the patterns of programs described above.

Students also may complete a minor (12 to 15 hours). See the following list of nonteaching programs for minors offered in the College of Liberal Arts. Teaching certification programs also are included.
