III: Degree Requirements and Graduation Procedures, and the Academic
Requirements Particular to the B.G.S. Degree
the 120 credits required for the degree and the minimum 60 credits
of courses numbered 300 or above, specific guidelines must be
more than 60 credits may be elected in all divisions
of a department.
more than 20 credits of upper-level courses may be counted from
one department. If a department has several divisions, a B.G.S.
student may elect up to 20 credits of upper-level courses from
each division. These statements should not be interpreted to
mean that as many as 20 credits of upper-level work from one
or more divisions must be completed or that it is impossible
to incorporate more than 20 upper-level credits from one division
into a B.G.S. degree. It is entirely possible to complete the
degree with fewer than 20 upper-level credits from any division
as long as the upper-level credits from all divisions total 60.
Similarly, the B.G.S. degree may be completed with more than
20 upper-level credits from a division by electing more than
the required 60 upper-level credits (e.g., 25 credits
of upper-level courses may be completed in a division as long
as 65 upper-level credits are completed).
least 40 of the required 60 upper-level credits must be in LS&A
- A student
must earn an overall GPA of at lest 2.0 in the courses used to
fulfill the requirement of 60 upper-level credits.
