Most of these degrees and supporting programs are offered by a specific college or department. They are described in the succeeding sections of the catalog devoted to each college and its departments. There are two degrees, however, that are university-wide in nature. They are the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and Bachelor of Science (B.S.). The requirements for these degrees follow.

A student seeking any bachelor’s degree at the University of Tennessee at Martin must satisfy the university-wide general education requirements found at the beginning of the catalog. Specific degree programs may have additional general requirements and/or may restrict the options from which a student may choose in one or more of the categories of study. A student should consult the appropriate section of this catalog and work closely with an academic adviser to ensure that all requirements of the specific degree for which he/she is a candidate are met.

Bachelor of Arts General Education Requirements

  

Bachelor of Science General Education Requirements

  

 Satisfying the B.A. and B.S. Foreign Language Requirement

The foreign language requirement for the degree of Bachelor of Arts is satisfied by completion of 222 or the equivalent. International students and resident aliens for whom it is determined that English is a second language may satisfy the requirement either as stated above or by taking an English course at the 200 level or above and passing with a grade of C or better.

Bachelor of Science students fulfill the foreign language requirement by completing a foreign language course numbered 122 or higher, unless they are taking the same language that was used to fulfill an entrance deficiency, in which case the sequence 122-222 in that language is required. International students and resident aliens for whom it is determined that English is a second language may satisfy the requirement either as stated above or by taking an English course at the 200 level or higher and passing with a grade of C or better.

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-graderequirement. 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 section.

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. For requirements for minors other than those listed below, see the individual departmental listings.

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