Academic & Degree Requirements

Like the Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Science degrees, the Bachelor of Liberal Studies degree requires completion of a minimum of 120 semester credit hours. Those hours are distributed across the four categories of General Education requirements, Intensive Course Requirements (Speaking and Writing Intensive) and requirements in the major as well as elective credit.

Students are required to complete at least 30 credits completed at UMW to graduate. A cumulative grade-point average of 2.00 is required to obtain the UMW degree.
