On page 267, under the heading DEGREES, and on page 272, in the MAJORS AND MINORS subsection of the BACHELOR OF ARTS, PLAN I degree section in the College of Liberal Arts chapter of the Undergraduate Catalog, 2004-2006, make the following changes:


P. 267

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 268. 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 281-283.

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 283-284.

A student may not earn more than one Bachelor of Arts degree from the University. 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.


P. 272

[Majors in departments in other colleges and schools. With the approval of the deans of the colleges involved, a Bachelor of Arts, Plan I, student may major in another college or school of the University.]

[The dean of the College of Liberal Arts may, in consultation with other faculty members and deans, arrange for the development of major programs by departments in other colleges and schools on the Austin campus. If a student wishes to major in a department in another school or college for which a major program has not already been developed, the dean of the College of Liberal Arts and other deans involved may prepare such a program on the petition of the student, with the condition that the deans must approve the major in question.]


RATIONALE: The College of Liberal Arts has deleted its final “intercollege” major (BA with a major in intercollege kinesiology and health). The statements being stricken refer to a period during which the College of Liberal Arts sponsored several intercollege degrees, including intercollege business, intercollege architectural studies, and intercollege kinesiology. We will no longer be offering or accepting intercollege majors.
