Academic Advisor for Liberal Arts
The Ambler Interdisciplinary CLA program was designed for students who wish to combine courses from various CLA subjects and develop a cohesive program of interest.
Students must choose to major in Humanities or Social Sciences by selecting all major courses from subjects on Humanities list or all courses from the subjects on the Social Science list:
SOCIAL SCIENCES SUBJECTS
Geography & Urban Studies
Latin American Studies
12 courses are required totaling a minimum of 36 s.h.
Students select one department (the "concentration" subject) in which five (5) courses (3) Upper Level CLA courses numbered 2000 or above) are taken. Then seven (7) additional courses, in a minimum of three different subjects outside of the concentration subject, are chosen. Of the twelve (12) courses, 24 s.h. (8 courses) must be Upper Level CLA. Two of these Upper Level courses must be writing intensive.
Note: All 12 courses for the major must be chosen from the subjects on the humanities list or all 12 courses must be chosen from the subjects on the Social Science list.
The 12 courses (36 s.h.) required by the major, 8 (24 s.h.) of which are Upper Level CLA courses, must be justified in terms of some thematic unit of cohesive rationale.
The written program proposal must be sponsored by two faculty members from different CLA departments in the chosen area (Humanities or Social Science) and approved by the Ambler Faculty Coordinator and the Ambler Academic Advisor for Liberal Arts.
Call 267-468-8200 for information and additional procedural details.
All courses used for this major must be completed with a C- or better and the average of the 12 courses must be at least 2.0.
