Please note:

All students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences are required to complete 120 total hours of which 45 hours must be at the Jr/Sr (300+) level.

The same course cannot be used to fulfill more than one KU Core Goal. However, overlap of a KU Core course with a major or degree-specific requirement is allowed. Overlapping is recommended to allow more opportunities to explore other majors and/or minors.

Notes:

THR 120 Public Speaking as Performance satisfies KU Core Goal 2.2.

The Theatre Department offers classes that satisfy KU Core Goal 4.1 and Goal 4.2. See Theatre Advisor for
more details.

It’s recommended that students enroll in a KU Core Goal 6 from their major concentration when available.

See footnote or Catalogue for THR Goal 6 options.
