RC Majors and Minors


RC Majors give students the unique opportunity to study academic programs unavailable elsewhere. The four RC Interdisciplinary Majors are Arts and Ideas, Creative Writing and Literature, Drama, and Social Theory and Practice. All RC majors and minors are available to all LSA students. 

More details about each major are available via each of these links: 

An Alternative to a Major: the Bachelor of General Studies

While not a major, the Bachelor in General Studies degree encourages students to take responsibility for structuring their own multidisciplinary academic programs. This degree requires a minimum of 120 credits. RC students doing a B.G.S. must include in their academic plan the completion of the First Year Seminar,  Upper-Level Writing, a course in Race and Ethnicity, a course in Quantitative Reasoning, the RC arts practicum, the two-year live-in requirement, the RC language requirement, and requirement for four additional RC courses. At least 60 credits of courses numbered 300 or above must be completed with no more than 20 of these 60 credits from one subject. 

Make an appointment with an advisor to discuss or declare the Bachelor of General Studies.
