The College of Arts and Sciences is a diverse community of educators, students, and researchers from across the country and around the world who work together to advance the boundaries of human knowledge, foster critical thinking skills, promote intellectual inquiry, and develop an understanding of different human cultures necessary to become engaged global citizens.

These goals compel a commitment to creativity and inquiry free of bias and based upon the principles of objective scholarship. They require a responsibility to promote and convey those elements of the liberal arts and sciences that must be essential components of the educational goals of all units of the university. The college seeks richness through diversity of its programs and strength through erudition.

The College of Arts & Sciences is the university’s largest and oldest; it teaches the most students, and provides the backbone for Troy University’s educational and research missions. As a result, you will find a broad array of academic programs that will prepare you for careers in public and private sectors as well as post-graduate and professional schools. These programs emphasize the core values of a classic liberal arts education, as well as the skills and flexibility one will need to meet the challenges of the 21st-century workplace.

A degree from the College of Arts & Sciences is much more than preparation for a career—it is preparation for a complete, rich, and rewarding life.

In addition to general studies courses, major courses and minor courses, sufficient free electives should be chosen to total at least 120 hours.

As part of ongoing planning and evaluation, the College of Arts and Sciences regularly evaluates student learning outcomes for each degree program.

Transfer of *Specialized technical courses. (not to exceed 18 semester hours.)

*Specialized technical courses.
Credit will be awarded for specialized technical knowledge based upon American Council of Education (A.C.E.) credit recommendations or transfer work from regionally accredited (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, etc.) post- secondary community college, or technical schools as approved by the Academic Council. Specializations are not available in fields of study that are offered through Troy University as majors, programs, or minors, e.g., nursing, computer science, information systems, or education.

Eligibility
Eligibility for enrollment in one of the applied science degree programs is dependent upon prior education and/or experience. Before enrollment in one of the programs, official documentation of prior learning must be submitted to determine eligibility. All post-secondary technical school transfer students must complete all courses required in the institution’s curriculum and earn (if appropriate) a diploma or certificate before being granted admission into the resources management degree program. No additional credit will be awarded for the possession of a license. All credit from the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF), accredited post secondary technical schools, and/or American Council on Education (ACE) recommendations will be considered junior college credit except where specifically recommended by ACE for upper-division credit. No credit will be awarded until six semester hours of academic credit has been earned at Troy University. At least 50 percent of the degree program must be traditional academic credit at the 3300/4400 level. Curriculum: The academic curricula taught by the university have been developed to supplement, not duplicate, the vocational/technical training or other experiential learning the individual may possess in a manner designed to provide these individuals greater career opportunities.

A minor of 18 hours is required
