The Complementary Liberal Arts (CLA) component of the ICC requires students to complete 12 credits of integrative liberal arts coursework in addition to themes and perspectives and the competencies. How students satisfy the CLA is defined differently by each school.
In the School of Humanities and Sciences, the H&S faculty intend the CLA to be a focused academic exploration that occurs outside the student’s major program. Through this requirement, their expectation (student learning outcome) is that:
Students are able to articulate how their focused area of exploration (the CLA) complemented their major, and/or broadened their worldview, and/or contributed toward their future professional goals.
Students in H&S may complete the CLA requirement by selecting one of the following:
- a minor
- a second major
- second language study
- a self-designed suite of liberal arts courses (minimum of 12 credits).
An additional option is also available to students in the following specific programs: teaching option majors and select majors in Theatre Arts: Acting BFA, Musical Theatre BFA, Theatre Production & Design BFA, Stage Management BFA, and Theatre Arts Management BS.
Policy information about the H&S CLA requirement is available in the catalog.
