Fourth-semester proficiency in a second language is required for the Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Interdisciplinary Studies along with all other undergraduate degrees offered by the College of Humanities.
In addition to the above requirements, all students pursuing a degree issued by the College of Humanities are required to complete a minor. Exceptions to this policy are those students pursuing a Bachelor of General Studies degree, or who are completing a second major with a Bachelor of Arts designation as described below.
Finally, all degrees issued by the College of Humanities require a minimum of 120 total units, of which at least 42 units must be upper-division (i.e., at the 300- or 400-level).
Dual Major Requirements
Students pursuing a second major with a Bachelor of Arts designation need only complete the Foundation and General Education requirements associated with their primary degree program. In addition, a minor is not required for students with a second major with a Bachelor of Arts designation.
Dual Degree Requirements
Students pursuing a second degree that has a different degree designation than the Bachelor of Arts (e.g., Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Fine Arts, etc.) should consult with Academic Advisors in both degree programs to confirm completion of Foundation and General Education requirements for each degree. In addition, a minor is required in conjunction with the Bachelor of Arts degree issued by the College of Humanities. However, it may be possible for students to add a minor related to the other degree to satisfy this requirement. Students are asked to consult with Academic Advisors in each program to verify options to satisfy this requirement.
*NOTE: Students on catalogs earlier than Fall 2022 may have different General Education requirements that are different than those listed below. Please consult with your academic advisor to review your requirements if you began at UArizona before Fall 2022.
