BA Three-Year Degree Plan

Sample schedule

This is a model three-year degree plan. Your path to graduation may vary slightly based on factors such as college credit you earned while in high school, your choice of a minor or second major, and placement in English and mathematics. Visit with your advisor to develop the plan that is right for you.

This degree program requires 18 hours toward a minor and can be completed in six regular semesters and three summer sessions. You will also need 12 hours of a foreign language, HST 103 and HST 104, a PHI course and six hours of fine arts. Check out the course rotation, course rotation by modalities and the evening course rotation by modalities before scheduling your classes.
