CHANGES IN THE REQUIREMENTS FOR A MINOR FOR THE BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE IN THE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2004-2006

On page 256, under the heading DEGREES in the section MAJORS AND MINORS in the College of Liberal Arts chapter of The Undergraduate Catalog, 2002-2004, make the following changes:



Minors.
Students in most majors must also fulfill the requirements of a minor. The minor consists of a specific number of semester hours of coursework completed outside the student’s major field [; in some departments, the minor field may be the same as the major]. The requirements of the minor are established by the major department and are given with the major requirements on pages 256-264. Additional restrictions may be imposed by the academic depart-ment(s) in which the student takes the courses used to fulfill the requirements of the minor; before planning to use a course to fulfill the minor requirement, the student should consult the department or program that offers the course.

The same courses may not be used to fulfill the requirements for both a major and a minor. Courses used to fulfill the requirements for a minor must be taken on the letter-grade basis, and six of the required semester hours must be taken in residence.

Unless otherwise indicated, a course taken to meet the requirements under “Prescribed Work,” pages 253-254, may also be counted toward fulfillment of the minor requirements.


RATIONALE: This statement was added to accommodate the American studies major's "American content minor." As of this catalog, the American studies required minor will be "12 hours, including 6 upper-division, in any one other subject or program." Therefore, we are removing the potentially confusing statement from the section.
