AddRan Bachelor of Arts Degree

Students pursuing a program leading to a BA degree must complete a minimum of 124 semester hours, 42 of which must be advanced (30000 level or above) from TCU, with a major selected from the approved list of majors above and a minor chosen in consultation with the student's adviser. The specific number of hours required for the major and minor may be found in the appropriate section of this catalog.

A maximum of 36 semester hours in any one subject field may be counted toward the 124-semester-hour minimum required for the BA degree. ENGL 10803 or 10833 and ENGL 20803 are excluded from the 36-semester-hour maximum for students majoring in English.

In addition, students must complete the TCU Core Curriculum described elsewhere in this catalog.

  1. No more than eight semester hours of physical education activity courses may be applied toward graduation requirements.
  2. Specific courses have been approved to meet the core curriculum. These courses are so identified in the schedule of classes for each term's offerings.
  3. No course may be applied to more than one set of major or minor requirements without the express approval of the associate dean of AddRan College.

This requirement may be satisfied by either satisfactory completion of coursework taken at or transferred to TCU or by presenting satisfactory scores on recognized standardized tests (i.e., AP, CLEP or SAT II). Required scores on standardized tests may be found in the Credit by Exam booklet available from the Office of Admission. For languages not currently taught at TCU, six semester hours at the sophomore-level, transferred to TCU from another accredited institution, may be used to satisfy this requirement. Students may also provide evidence of competency in the non-English language by successfully completing one academic year in a secondary or post-secondary institution in which the language of instruction is other than English, for which the student will receive 12 hours of credit.
