 University-Wide Criteria for the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and Bachelor of Science (B.S.) Degrees

To accommodate the diversity of knowledge, the diverse interests of students, and the needs of an increasingly technical society, the University offers the Bachelor of Arts (BA), the Bachelor of Science (BS), the Bachelor of Liberal Studies (BLS) and professional baccalaureate degrees. The Lincoln Program supports baccalaureate education at SIUE by playing a foundational role in imparting the abilities and knowledge that define the common core of all of these degrees. University-wide criteria mandate the manner in which departments and programs inflect the broad content of these respective degrees in order to assure that they are equivalent and meaningfully differentiated degrees. The University requires students earning a:                             

• B.A. degree to complete at least eight (8) courses in the fine and performing arts and humanities, including, as part of those eight courses, a two (2) semester sequence of a foreign language;

• B.S. degree to complete at least eight (8) courses in the sciences (life, physical or social), including, as part of those eight courses, two (2) courses designated as labs (LAB);

• BLS degree to complete requirements defined by the Liberal Studies program;

• Professional baccalaureate degrees to complete requirements defined by professional program.
