Requirements for the Bachelor's Degree
To receive a bachelor's degree from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, students must complete the requirements listed below. Some degree programs have additional requirements. The following chapters list the specific requirements for each undergraduate major. Students should review with care the degree requirements listed in this chapter as well as the requirements for the major(s) and minor(s) they wish to complete.
Completion of the Bachelor's degree requires that students complete the following 12 requirements:
1. Complete all degree requirements (majors and minors) within the same valid catalog year and complete all major and related curriculum requirements outlined in the valid catalog year for the specific major(s).
Students must complete the requirements specified by their major(s) including study in related areas as specified by the department, within a valid catalog year.
Foreign Language Requirement
The B.A. degree requires completion of the second college year in one foreign language. The faculty of the Department of Foreign Languages encourages students to begin or to continue foreign language study during their first year at the University or upon declaring a major that includes a foreign language requirement.
Students whose native language is not English pursuing a B.A. degree will fulfill the foreign language requirement by meeting the English requirements for foreign students. The courses are: English 161, 162, 121 and 122. Students testing out of English 161 and 162 will fulfill this requirement upon successful completion of English 121 and 122.
Students required to take any of developmental courses must complete these courses in addition to courses required for specific degrees. Although students may be required to complete developmental courses, the credit earned in these courses does not apply to the hours required for graduation, major requirements, general education requirements, or electives. These courses do count toward full-time enrollment, however. Moreover, the grades earned in these courses are not included in the calculation of the grade point averages for graduation or honors.
All students seeking the B.A. degree in the College of Arts and Sciences must complete the requirements for a minor in the same valid catalog year as the major(s). Students completing the requirements for two majors satisfy the requirement for a minor. For students seeking the B.A. as a second degree, the previously completed major will satisfy the minor requirement.
Students may complete an established minor requiring a minimum of 18 credit hours with at least 8 credit hours at the 300/400 level. Students must earn a GPA of 2.0 for courses
