Bachelor of Arts Requirements


Bachelor of Science Requirements


Major Requirements for B.A. and B.S.

Each student in a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree program must complete a major program of study consisting of no fewer than 18 semester hours of upper-division courses (up to six hours of these courses may be replaced by lower-division work in certain departments). A minimum grade of C (2.00) must be made in every course offered for the major, exclusive of lower-division prerequisites. Required and elective courses taken for pass/fail (P/F) where a P is recorded will count as satisfying the minimum-grade requirement. Transfer students must earn at least six hours in the major while in residence at The University of Tennessee at Martin. Requirements for the major are specified by the individual departments. Certain majors may also require a student to complete a minor program of study. (See individual departmental listings.) 

For information on preparation for legal study or pre-theological study, see the Department of History and Philosophy 

  section. For information on pre-professional curricula in the health sciences, see the College of Engineering and Natural Sciences  

Minor Requirements for B.A. and B.S.

A minor in support of the B.A. or B.S. degree consists of not less than 12 hours of upper-division courses in a subject outside the major. Up to six hours of these courses may be replaced by lower-division work in certain departments. Students completing a single degree may complete two minors. For requirements for minors other than those of the interdisciplinary minors listed below, see the individual descriptions of the minors: 


A second major can be completed in lieu of a required minor.
