Revision of Bachelor of Science Degree Requirements
Several revisions to the Bachelor of Science degree requirements have been implemented for Fall 2008. The first revision is to delete the Nonrelated Subjects category of courses. The second revision changes the title of the Social Science category to Social Science and Humanities in order to more accurately reflect the disciplines represented in that category. Finally, the Social Science and Humanities requirement is revised to provide more flexibility in completing the requirement. The previous requirement was for students to complete 6 hours each in two different subjects of social science. The new requirement still requires students to complete 12 hours in this category, but students complete 6 hours in one subject and the “remaining six hours in a different subject or subjects.” Thus, students can take courses in a total of three different subjects (if desired) instead of two to satisfy this requirement.
Although this requirement has been made effective for Fall 2008 and will be published in the Fall 2008 catalog, students may still graduate using the older catalogs that did not include this revision. However, if students decide to use the Fall 2008 catalog for the revised requirements for the B.S. degree, then they must also satisfy any other curriculum or course changes incorporated in the Fall 2008 catalog.
