Liberal Arts and Sciences

The Board of Regents of the State of New York has established minimal credit requirements in the Liberal Arts and Sciences for the bachelor’s degree:

  • At least 90 of the credits for the B.A. degree must be in the Liberal Arts and Sciences.
  • At least 60 of the credits for the B.S. degree must be in the Liberal Arts and Sciences.

At St. John Fisher College, the following courses are not considered to be in the Liberal Arts and Sciences: Accounting, Accounting Law, Management, Nursing, Education, and Mathematics/Science/Technology Integration courses involving teaching methods and strategy, as well as certain Interdisciplinary and Sport Management courses. Certain courses transferred to Fisher in other disciplines, such as Arts, Communication and Computer Science, may not be accepted as liberal arts courses; consult with the Registrar’s Office in doubtful cases.
