Liberal Arts, BA Major in


Return to Programs (Alphabetically, University-wide) Return to: Programs (Alphabetically, University-wide)

The BA major in Liberal Arts was designed for students who wish to pursue studies in several areas rather than concentrate in one discipline. It offers more options than the traditional major for students with diverse interests.

The student chooses three areas of concentration from the departments and programs in the Hofstra College of Liberal Arts and Sciences . The areas of concentration may be chosen from the same or from different divisions.

Program Requirements - Total Semester Hours: at least 60


The major consists of at least 60 credits in the three areas of concentration in nonintroductory courses for which liberal arts credit is given, with a minimum of 18 credits in each of the three areas. Only courses permitted for the major or minor may be applied to the Liberal Arts major. In departments that require eight or more credits of introductory courses as a prerequisite for all further courses, only 15 credits above the introductory level are required, but the total of 60 credits still applies. (A list of introductory-level courses, which do not count toward this major, is available in the Office of the Dean of Hofstra College.)

At least six semester hours in each of the three areas of concentration must be completed in residence at Hofstra. Candidates for this degree may take no more than one course among all three areas of study on a Pass/D+/D/Fail basis, not counting those courses normally given on the Pass/D+/D/Fail basis. Students who wish to elect this major should apply to the Office of the Dean of the College, preferably no later than the sophomore year.

Transcripts will read Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts with the three areas of study listed.
