Program Notes

  1. Students may use arts courses to fulfill 9 credits of General Education and Bachelor of Arts requirements if

    • All 9 credits are OUTSIDE the student's art area.

    • No more than 6 credits are in any one subject area.

    • 6 of these credits may double count with College Requirements (History of the Arts).

  2. Students must take at least 15 credits of major courses at the 400 level or its equivalent.

  3. A total of 124 credits is required for graduation.

Academic Advising Notes

  1. ENGL 202 A, B, or D is recommended for IARAB majors.

  2. Under their adviser’s supervision, new IARAB majors write a proposal outlining the courses they plan to take in the major, demonstrating how those courses work together to achieve their educational goals and/or prepare them for their intended career. The proposal must be approved by the Head of Division of Arts and Humanities. Failure to have an approved proposal on file with the Registrar by the deadline set for the student by the Division of Arts and Humanities incurs a registration hold on the student’s account.
