General Education Requirements
The University Senate has adopted General Education Requirements in a variety of curricular areas that must be satisfied as part of every bachelor’s degree program. These requirements appear in the General Education Requirements section of this Catalog.
Courses may be used to meet both School of Fine Arts and University requirements.
Supplementary Scholastic Standard
Fine Arts students (with the exception of Art History and Theatre Studies majors and Digital Media and Design students enrolled in the Bachelor of Arts program) must enroll in a minimum of six credits in major department courses (Art and Art History, Dramatic Arts, or Music or Digital Media and Design courses for students enrolled in the Bachelor of Fine Arts program) each semester of full-time study unless an exception is granted by the Director of Advising. Students who fail to comply with the minimum credit requirement are subject to dismissal from the school.
Bachelor’s Degree Requirements
Upon the recommendation of the faculty, the various bachelor’s degrees are awarded by vote of the Board of Trustees to students who have met the following requirements:
- Earned at least 120 credits applicable toward the degree;
- earned at least a 2.0 grade point average for all calculable course work;
- met all the requirements listed above for the specific degree taken.
