Major Fields of Study
Baccalaureate majors consist of not fewer than seven nor more than 10 courses required in the department. Approved interdepartmental majors may consist of up to 12 courses required from among the disciplines comprising the major.
All course work in a baccalaureate major is subject to the following restrictions:
Courses in a major must be taken for a regular letter grade. A minimum grade of C- is required for a course to be counted toward the major. Unless otherwise stated, a minimum cumulative grade point average of C (2.0) must be earned for all major course work.
A minimum of one-half of the courses in the major must be completed in residence.
Transfer courses, substitutions and courses taken on campuses of the Associated Colleges of the Twin Cities (ACTC) for a St. Catherine's major require the approval of the chair of the major department.
Supporting courses for some majors must be completed for a letter grade with at least a C- or C. Unless otherwise stated, required supporting courses may be completed with the S/U grading option.
PETITIONING FOR ADMISSION TO MAJOR OR CHANGE OF MAJOR
CERTIFICATE AND ASSOCIATE PROGRAMS
Students who wish to change programs or majors must complete the required paper work. Forms for this purpose can be obtained in the Registrar's Office.
Normally, a student will select a major field of study before the end of her sophomore year by petitioning for admission to the department. Departmental approval of the petition is required for admission to the major. Forms for this purpose may be obtained from the Office of Academic Advising. In some departments, it may be necessary to limit the number of petitions approved in any given year because of limited clinical facilities, internship opportunities or other similar factors related to required learning experiences in the program.
