 - available only as second major for a BA; may be sole major for a BA if also completing a BS (optional)

Major

All students must complete the requirements of a major field of study.  A major ordinarily includes a program of 10 or more courses.

Minor

A minor concentration requires no fewer than 15 credit-hours and normally requires no more than 18 credit-hours.  With the exception of minors offered by the Case School of Engineering, students must earn a minimum cumulative average of 2.000 for all courses taken to satisfy minor requirements and for which grades are averaged.  Transfer students who wish to complete a minor must complete at Case Western Reserve University at least half the requirements for the minor.

Minors are not required.  Students have the option of completing a minor in a discipline other than the major. The successful completion of a minor will be indicated on a student's transcript. 

General Education Requirements

For each degree/major a student must complete, in addition to the SAGES and Physical Education requirements (described in the section General Degree Requirements), the general education and other requirements for that degree/major (described in the sections of this chapter for the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) BA degree, the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) BS degrees, the Case School of Engineering (CSE) BS in Engineering degree, the Case School of Engineering (CSE) BS in Computer Science degree, the Case School of Engineering (CSE) BS in Data Science and Analytics degree, the Weatherhead School of Management (WSOM), and the Francis Payne Bolton School of Nursing (FBP)).
