Requirements for the Bachelor of Science Degree

To be eligible for the Bachelor of Science degree, students must
  1. fulfill the university General Education requirements.
  2. satisfy Writing Across the Curriculum requirements.
  3. complete the residency requirement of 45 credit hours at Wright State. At least 15 of the last 45 hours for the degree must be taken at Wright State, and at least 30 hours must be taken at Wright State at the 300-level or above.
  4. complete at least 183 credit hours of acceptable academic work, with at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA and at least a 2.0 GPA in the major. A student may find it necessary to earn more than 183 credit hours to meet the requirements of the curriculum chosen. In certain programs, a grade of C or better must be earned in specified courses.
  5. complete at least 75 credit hours in advanced courses (numbered 200 and above) applicable to the degree.
  6. complete at least 54 credit hours in one department; by permission of the department chair, up to 18 hours of this requirement may be taken in a closely related field.
  7. complete all the requirements in one of the approved programs of study established by the departments or within the college. A student must take at least 95 credit hours outside the major department.

Requirements for the Bachelor of Arts Degree

To be eligible for the Bachelor of Arts degree, students must complete the requirements listed for the Bachelor of Science and also must
  1. complete at least 27 credit hours in departments outside the College of Science and Mathematics and the College of Engineering and Computer Science. The level and type of courses to be taken are subject to the discretion and approval of the student's major department. These courses are in addition to those needed to fulfill the General Education requirements.
  2. complete at least three courses in a department other than the major department within either the College of Science and Mathematics or the College of Engineering and Computer Science. These courses are in addition to those needed to fulfill the General Education requirements.

Honors Program

Departmental honors programs are available in biological sciences, chemistry, earth sciences, mathematics and statistics, physics, and psychology. These honors programs give well-qualified students the opportunity to complete an independent research project and pursue advanced course work. Students interested in pursuing an honors project should consult with the chair of the appropriate department. Departmental honors are awarded at graduation, upon completion of requirements.
