PPR3.2 BREADTH AND SUBJECT REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BACHELOR OF ARTS

PPR3.2.1 English Composition: Students must demonstrate adequate proficiency in English composition by completing a one-year sequence of college- level instruction in English composition, with no grade lower than C as described in R6.1. (En 4 Dec 2018)

PPR3.2.2 Humanities: 20 units in Humanities as described in R6.3. Internships and independent study courses, and courses cross-listed with Business Administration, Education or Physical Education, may not be used to satisfy this requirement.

PPR3.2.3 Social Sciences: 16 units in Social Sciences as described in R6.4. Internships and independent study courses, and courses cross-listed with Business Administration, Education or Physical Education, may not be used to satisfy this requirement.

PPR3.2.4 Ethnicity: 4 units as described in R6.5.

PPR3.2.5 Foreign Language: The Foreign Language Requirement (except for Foreign Language majors who satisfy the spirit of the language requirement by majoring in one or more languages) may be satisfied in two ways:

PPR3.2.5.1 By completing the fourth- quarter level or its equivalent in one foreign language at UCR or at another college or university with a minimum grade of C; American Sign Language may also be used to satisfy this requirement.

PPR3.2.5.2 By demonstrating proficiency at the fourth-quarter level on a foreign language placement exam offered by one of the foreign language departments at UCR. This test does not yield unit credit; it only determines whether the Foreign Language Requirement has been met, or in which course in the language sequence a student should enroll

PPR3.2.5.3 For majors in other schools or colleges the number of quarters required to fulfill the Foreign Language requirement for the B.A. Degree will be determined by a committee appointed by the Executive Committee and the other school or college concerned. In no instance will this requirement be less than the minimum required by either body.

PPR3.2.6 Natural Sciences and Mathematics: 20 units in Natural Sciences and Mathematics as described in R6.2

PPR3.2.7 No course from a student's major discipline may be used in satisfaction of breadth requirements PPR3.2.1 to PPR3.2.6. However, courses outside the major discipline, but required for the major may satisfy these requirements. Students who elect a double or interdisciplinary major may apply courses from one of the majors, departments or programs in satisfaction of PPR3.2.1 to PPR3.2.6. Also,
the same course may not be used to meet two breadth requirements.
