  • A minor in each degree component of 4 units: 2 introductory, 2 intermediate level units
  • Four degree electives: 4 units in each degree component, 0 ~ 4 units at introductory level and 2 ~ 4 units at either intermediate level or advanced level (provided they fit in the overall requirements of the minimum and maximum number of units at each level for the whole degree).

Bachelor of Arts

In the Bachelor of Arts component, you choose a major, a minor and 4 degree electives.

Bachelor of Science

In the Bachelor of Science component, you choose a major, a minor and 4 degree electives. With the exception of Mathematics, a major and minor must be taken from different discipline areas. Introductory degree electives must be chosen from a different discipline area than the major and minor, except students may select introductory level degree elective units in Mathematics if they have also selected either a major or minor, but not both, from that discipline area.
