 Undergraduate Degree Programs & General Education

             Lyndon offers Associate Degree programs, which may be completed in two years and Bachelors programs, which may be completed in four years.

            Each undergraduate program consists of required courses from the sponsoring academic department, courses from other departments, competency in Basic Skill requirements, the General Education Unit (GEU), and unrestricted electives.

            In order to receive a degree from Lyndon, all students are required to take a minimum number of credit hours at Lyndon. For all undergraduates this residency requirement stipulates that 30 of the last 39 credit hours must be achieved in courses taken at the college. The minimum number of credits within a program that must be taken at the college is: major - 12; minors - 6; Liberal Studies Degree Primary Area - 6; Secondary Area - 3.

             Requirements for undergraduate degrees may be summarized as follows:

Associate in Science Associate in Arts Bachelor of Arts or Science
General Education Foundation, and Distribution: 30 credits General Education Foundation, and Distribution: 30 credits General Education Unit: 43 credits
Total Credits: 60 Total Credits: 60 Total Credits: 120

 

Acceptance to Degree and Licensure Candidacy in Major Programs    

             During the sophomore year some departments require Lyndon Bachelor degree candidates to apply for formal acceptance into a major program; consult your major program in this catalog for the departmental requirements. Application forms are available from the departments.

            Candidates for Vermont Teaching Licenses should consult notes on eligibility under each program for standards governing practice teaching and certification.

            Candidates for all associate degrees need not be admitted formally to major programs.

 Double Majors

             Students may earn a double major at the college by fulfilling all requirements of two programs. Students fulfilling the requirements for two majors will receive a single diploma, but the diploma will state the degree and list both majors. If one of the majors is designated as a Bachelor of Arts, a Bachelor of Fine Arts and/or the other as a Bachelor of Science, the student will have the choice as to the degree that will appear on the diploma (as well as the official transcript).

An individual course may not be applied toward fulfilling requirements in both programs, except:
1.  a course may be applied toward GEU requirements in both programs;
2.  a course may be applied toward GEU requirements in one program and major requirements in the other program;
3.  a course may be applied toward both programs when that course is explicitly stated as a requirement in both programs;
4.  a course may be applied toward a program requirement in one major and elective credit in the other major; or
5.  a course may be applied toward elective credit in both programs.

 Minor Programs

             Lyndon offers minor programs consisting of 18 to 24 credit hours of course work. While minors lack the depth and breadth of a major program, they do allow for some concentrated study in a single area. Students interested in gaining recognition for a minor program must apply to the sponsoring department through the Registrars Office by the end of the term preceding completion of the minor. Successful completion of a minor will not appear on ones diploma, but will be noted on the transcript once the student has graduated from a baccalaureate program.
