Major/Minor Requirements

  • Each department sets forth its individual requirements for a major and a minor. However, the minimum number of semester hours for all majors is 30; the maximum number is the stated major plus four hours. Additional work in the major will count as free electives and may be used toward graduation requirements.
  • A student should choose a major field of study as early as possible. All students must 'declare' a major and minor prior to the junior year. A student changing his/her major or minor must notify Belmont Central immediately.
  • A student may seek licensure to teach in the State of Tennessee by completing State licensure requirements through the School of Education. Forms are available in the Belmont Central Office.
  • For more information on major/minor requirements, please refer to the current university catalog.
