Purpose: This curriculum is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year institution to complete a baccalaureate degree in English, foreign language, humanities, journalism, liberal arts, philosophy, pre-law, or speech/drama.
A specialization is also available in fine arts.
Program Objectives: To prepare students for transfer to a four-year college or university.
Admission Requirements: Applicants must meet the requirements for admission to credit-level coursework established by the college.
Developmental Requirements: Students who do not place into college-level English on the placement test will be required to take developmental courses.
Students who do not demonstrate proficiency on the placement test in the following mathematical units will be required to complete developmental courses: MTE 1 , MTE 2 , MTE 3 , MTE 4 , and MTE 5 .
It is strongly recommended that developmental education requirements be completed as soon as possible.
While a course may satisfy a requirement for a Virginia Western program, it may not fulfill a requirement at a four-year institution. Students who intend to transfer should verify specific program requirements with their four-year institution.
