ADDITION OF CLARIFYING DEGREE STATEMENT IN THE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2004-2006

On page 251, under the heading DEGREES in the College of Liberal Arts chapter of The Undergraduate Catalog, 2002-2004, add the following statement:

DEGREES

The College of Liberal Arts offers three degree programs: the Bachelor of Arts, Plan I; the Bachelor of Arts, Plan II; and the Bachelor of Science in Psychology.

The requirements of the Bachelor of Arts, Plan I, begin on page 252. For this degree students may major in any of the departments of the College of Liberal Arts or the College of Natural Sciences; these majors are listed on pages 5-7. With the approval of the appropriate deans, the student may also seek the Bachelor of Arts with a major in another college or school of the University.

The Bachelor of Arts, Plan II, a broad liberal arts honors program for outstanding students, is described on pages 265-267.

The Bachelor of Science in Psychology is designed to offer students a more extensive scientific program than the Bachelor of Arts with a major in psychology. The requirements for the BSPsy are given on pages 267-268.

A student may not earn both the Bachelor of Arts with a major in psychology and the Bachelor of Science in Psychology.

A student may not earn both the Bachelor of Arts with an intercollege major in kinesiology and health and the Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology.


RATIONALE:
This policy has been in place since the Bachelor of Arts with a major in Intercollege Kinesiology (now Kinesiology and Health - Intercollege) was first offered, for more than 20 years. In the 2002-2004 catalog, we printed the major requirements in our major section for the first time, but neglected to print the above policy statement. The College of Education will submit a proposal to add this statement to the education chapter.
