Immersions and Minors
The College of Liberal Arts offers students two options for completion of their upper level liberal arts requirements. Students may choose to do a Liberal Arts Immersion or a Liberal Arts Minor. It is important to note that the lower level liberal arts requirements, the Core requirements, remain the same regardless of whether the student elects to do an Immersion or a Minor. Refer to the Core requirements for your individual program to be sure you are taking the appropriate courses.
The Liberal Arts Immersion consists of three upper level courses in a specified area of study and three liberal arts electives. Immersions may be disciplinary or interdisciplinary. Some immersions require a pre-requisite that must be taken in the core. Refer to the description of each immersion for specific requirements.
The Liberal Arts Minors are designed for students who wish to build a secondary area of expertise into their program of study. Minors require five designated courses in a specified area and one liberal arts elective. Again, some minors are disciplinary, others are interdisciplinary. Some minors require a pre-requisite that must be taken in the core. Refer to the description of each minor for specific requirements.
Each Immersion and Minor is different. It is essential to follow the requirements stated. Advising is available through the Office of Student Services in the College of Liberal Arts. The office is located in Building 06, Suite 2210.
