General Studies - Social Sciences/Humanities Plan A(120 Hours)

T. Whitacre, Coordinator

This division of general studies is for students whose primary interest in the humanities or social sciences requires programs and course selections which are not possible within single academic units or established curricula. Students who wish to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Humanities or a Bachelor of Arts in Social Sciences will devise an approved, coherent program of study which fulfills an academic or career goal and includes prerequisites consistent with the 300-400-level course work. In addition, each student will satisfy the General Education Requirements and any additional requirements of the College of Liberal Arts.

Plan A—Primary/Secondary Concentration
Primary concentration: a minimum of 24 semester credits, including at least 15 300-400-level credits, must be completed in a single humanities or social sciences department or published program with a minimum 2.00 primary concentration gpa. The degree (Gen H or Gen S) will depend on the primary concentration.

Secondary concentration: a minimum of 15 semester credits, including at least 6 300-400-level credits, must be completed in another academic department, program or area published in the catalog with a minimum 2.00 gpa.
