Undergraduate Human Environmental Sciences programs require 120 semester hours for the bachelor's degree. At most, 50 percent of those hours may be taken at two-year colleges and applied toward graduation requirements. Therefore, the maximum number of two-year college hours applicable to a degree is 60 hours. Course numbers 197 and 397 indicate lower-level and upper-level elective credit, respectively. If, upon evaluation, a course is determined to have no direct University of Alabama equivalent but does fall under a discipline taught at The University of Alabama, the course will be awarded 197 or 397 credit in conjunction with the appropriate discipline prefix. The discipline prefix with the 197 or 397 course number indicates that the course is suitable for elective credit in that discipline.
Students who have completed an undergraduate degree in another discipline and wish to complete a second degree must meet the requirements described for their major. A minimum of 30 hours of coursework beyond the first degree is required to earn a second bachelor’s degree.
