General Education (35-41 hours)


See University Undergraduate Catalog for the University General Education Program requirements. Students who have completed one year of American History in high school are exempted from the six credit-hour History General Education Program requirement; otherwise, students will have to meet the History requirement.

 

Coordinated Study (39-51 hours)


Many upper-division (3000/4000-level) courses have prerequisites that must be met prior to being permitted to register for those courses. You are responsible for knowing and satisfying all course prerequisites. Some (not all) prerequisites are listed below. For specific information about courses and the prerequisites they may have, please view course descriptions at: http://www.memphis.edu/ugcatalog/coursedescrip/index.php.

Many courses also require permits from the department that teaches the course. For example, SWRK and CJUS courses will always need permits from those respective departments. University College staff cannot issue permits for courses taught in other departments. ALL 3000/4000 level classes taught by the College of Business (ACCT, ECON, FIR, MGMT, MKTG) require a permit; students must request a permit online at: https://fcbeacad.memphis.edu/permits/

Foreign Language (9-21 hours)


Requirement: 9 hours at the 3000-level or above.

Students with previous background in the chosen language (Chinese or Japanese) must take the placement test to determine in what course they should enroll.

Students with no previous background in the chosen language will enroll in CHIN 1010  or JAPN 1010 .

Senior Project (3 hours)


The senior project is a student’s culminating experience or capstone designed to synthesize and integrate the content of a student’s program of study. The senior project is intended to fuse the two or more academic areas that comprise the student’s coordinated study (major) into an academically-relevant example of scholarship. Students will complete a thesis, task-based, or artistic project on a topic of their choice with approval of their senior project instructor. The senior project is completed during a student’s final semester. ALL sections of UNIV 4995 are taught online. Students will be assigned to a specific section based on his or her concentration.
