A&S Level of Study Requirement
Hours at the 2000 Level or Above
Within the total hours applied to the degree, at least 60 semester hours of Arts & Sciences courses must be at the 2000-level or higher. Arts & Sciences courses are defined as courses listed earlier in this section on the DARS under humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences, and include foreign languages, courses from the major, and courses taught by faculty in the College of Arts & Sciences intended to meet the junior composition or Tier III requirement. University Professor (UP) courses taught by Arts & Science faculty will count only if they are listed as applicable to any of the three A&S area requirements.
Economics majors may apply QBA 2010 and, with departmental approval, other advanced courses in statistics, to the Arts & Sciences 2000-level requirement for a maximum of 12 hours.
Non-Arts & Sciences courses are usually considered electives and not counted toward the level of study requirement. Rather, they apply toward the 120-hour requirement for graduation.
