requirements for each major must be completed. The student must confer with the departments in which he will major and with the Registrar's Office. Double Major A student may be graduated with two majors. The following information is for those pursuing two majors: All prerequisites, supporting courses and depart mental requirements for each major must be completed. The second major must have minimum of 18 upper division units unique to that major (i.e. , minimum of 48 major units and 148 total units required - see individu al major requirements). The student must confer with the departments in which he will major and with the Registrar's Office. Minors Although Biola University does not require the student to have a minor for graduation, there are a number of instances in which a student may wish to take a minor, especially in planning for a career in teaching. By checking the various departments in the catalog, a student may determine if a minor is offered. Aminor usually requires a minimum of 18 units, 12 of which should be upper division and six of these should be unique to the minor, i.e., not counted toward any other requirements. Writing Competency Requirement Before graduation from Biola, a student must pass the Writing Competency Requirement. This requirement will not be given separately from the standard curricu lum. Instead, each department has designed its requirement to suit the particular demands of its major. Several upper-division courses will offer the requirement as part of their regular assignments. The requirement normally should be attempted during the student's junior year, preferably during the first semester. Students with junior status should enroll in at least one of the Writing Competency courses offered within their major (most departments will iden tify their Writing Competency courses in the Schedule of Classes, although some departments distribute their own information sheet on the requirement). Some departments require a student to submit a portfolio of written work collected from several upper-division courses (the student should consult their advisors about the department policy). Several departments offer more than one Writing Competency course. If a student enrolls in more than one Writing Competency course, that student may choose the course in which he or she will attempt to fulfill the Writing Competency Requirement. Students who do not fulfill the requirement must enroll in another Writing Competency course during the follow ing semester. After a second failure, students must take English 210 (Writing for Competency). A grade of C+ or higher in this course will satisfy the Writing Competency Requirement. Students cannot enroll in English 210 until they have failed their department's requirement twice.
