Curricular Definitions

The curriculum of the University is composed of numerous courses of study.  Each program contains several elements that provide order and direction.  To ensure clarity in the connections among the various curricular parts, it is necessary to define each of them.  These definitions provide an overall framework for university programmatic action.  Exceptions to these definitions are considered in the established curricular review process, concluding with the University Academic Council.
