When converting program units from quarter to semester, the Q2S Steering Committee recommends the following structure:

  • Minimum number of units for a BA: 36 (one course less than current practice)
  • Minimum number of units for a BS: 39
  • Minimum number of units for a Minor: 18 (this is our current smallest minor; the majorit consist of 24 units)
  • Minimum number of units for a MA/MS: 30 (the Title V requirement)
