The BA requires completion of two courses of collegiate-level writing instruction. Students who test out of Composition will still need to complete ENGL 102 (or equivalent) and one additional Goal 2.1 course.
Visit this website for a list of courses that fulfill the BA Quantitative Reasoning requirement.
Typically Goal 6 is fulfilled using a course required by the major. Review the list of Goal 6 courses that may apply to the major, or choose another course. A free elective may need to be used to fulfill pre-requisites if a course within the major is not chosen. Note - KOR 562 is not approved for KU Core Goal 6.
Hour requirements (incl. 45 jr/sr hrs) are typically met through KU core, degree, major, second area of study and/or elective hours. Students completing the BGS with a major must choose a secondary area of study. Individual degree mapping is done in partnership with your advisor.
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.
Electives for EALC must be taken at the 300+ level.
For clarification: when asked for a class on East Asia, classes on East Asia must be on East Asia broadly (so, a course on Japan, China, and Korea broadly)
