Admission to the Major

Admission Requirements

Application term

Students should apply to the major during the semester in which major admission criteria will be completed; normally no later than 60 hours, or for transfer students, normally during the initial term at KU. Application to this major after completion of 60 hours, or the initial KU term for transfer students, will likely delay graduation.

Courses Required

Admission GPA

A minimum 2.5 GPA is required in the admission courses designated above. All the core courses completed at the time of application will be calculated into the admission grade-point average. University Course Repeat Policy will apply.

The undergraduate advisory committee evaluates applications. Students providing documentation of meeting the criteria are admitted when they apply. Faculty members are aware of the dangers associated with relying solely on grade-point average in selecting students. The department is committed to promoting cultural diversity in its programs, and the undergraduate advisory committee is guided by principles of affirmative action.
