You are responsible for consulting the current University of Redlands Catalog regarding graduation requirements and are responsible for monitoring your own progress. In your senior year, you should contact the registrar's office to arrange for a "grad check." The Registrar determines the general transferability of courses from other institutions and their application of fulfilling LAFs.
All Liberal Studies core courses and the subject matter courses must be at least 3 credits and must be completed with a grade of 2.0 [C] or higher. Liberal Studies majors are also required to complete a second major of their choice.
1. Liberal Studies Core Course
2. Subject Matter Courses
The following courses are required Subject Matter courses for the Liberal Studies degree. The courses are the most appropriate choices for fulfilling the respective LAF relative to the state's teaching content standards.
*Course substitutions must be approved by the Liberal Studies Director.
3. Second Major (to be chosen by student)
The course of study is subject to the guidelines set forth by the program in which the second major is taken. The second major must be declared before registration for the junior year.
A departmental honors program in Liberal Studies is available for those who wish to pursue advanced undergraduate research in elementary education.
