Other Information

In the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS), only one course may overlap between a major and a minor or between two CAS majors.

Courses for the major and/or its pre/co-requisites that are cross-listed in the catalog or schedule of courses under another course prefix may be taken under that other prefix and still count for these requirements.

With the approval of the chair/director, courses that applied to the major in previous years but have since been deactivated may be applied to this year’s major requirements if they are reactivated.

For a Bachelor of Arts degree, no more than 45 credits in courses with the same departmental prefix may be used toward completion of the 120 credits required for graduation.

At least half of the credits used to complete major requirements must be taken at the University of Vermont.
