Traditional Day Departments and Programs
Departments, Programs, and Courses of Instruction
Each department or program offering a field of major concentration has listed its requirements and recommendations under department listings in this catalog. Students will be held responsible for observing these directives to the satisfaction of the department or program which administers the major course of study.
Students should check the Registration Schedules for the courses offered each term. Not all courses listed in this catalog are given every term or every year. Some courses are given every other year. The University reserves the right to cancel courses for which there are insufficient enrollments.
