The remaining courses needed to make up the 120 credits required for the degree may be elected from courses offered in the College for which a student is eligible. A degree program may also include up to 18 credits of professional courses offered in other schools of the University. It is desirable to reserve such courses for the last two years. Liberal arts courses offered in such subjects as computer science or architectural history in the Schools of Engineering and Applied Science and Architecture do not count as professional courses, although courses offered by the Departments of Air, Military, and Naval Science do, and only 12 credits from these departments may be included in the 120 credits offered for a degree. Up to eight credits of music performance courses may count toward the B.A. degree, but they may not count toward the humanities area requirement. Up to two credits of personal skills (PLSK) courses may count toward the B.A. degree. PLSK credits count as credits taken outside of the College. Students who complete approved minor programs outside the College may, once they have completed the program, count these credits as inside the College. For approval by the Committee on Special Programs, such minors must have a primarily liberal arts focus and be consistent with the academic objectives and standards of the College. They are supervised by committees that combine members from the College and the other schools involved. At present, the following minor programs are approved: the minor in planning and the minor in architectural history (both in the School of Architecture).
