Bachelor of Liberal Arts Degree
The candidate for the degree of Bachelor of Liberal Arts must complete 120 hours with an overall quality point average of 2.0 or above.
He/she must satisfy the General Education Requirements of the University as set forth elsewhere in this Bulletin.
At least 60 of the 120 credit hours required must be in 300, 400, or 500-level courses. Of these, 30 credits must be completed in the College of Arts and Sciences.
Not more than 40 hours in 300-level or higher courses may be taken in any one department. No more than 52 hours (in total credits) may be earned in any one department.
Up to 30 of the 120 hours may be courses from other schools and colleges of the University of Miami except for those courses expressly excluded from recognition by the College. These credits include both lower and upper division courses. Students who exceed this maximum will have the number of credits required to graduate increased by the number earned over 30 credits.
The student may, but is not required to, elect a major in a department. If a student fulfills the departmental requirements for the major, it will be recorded on the official transcript. No minor may be elected.
