Course Cycle

 

The department's course cycle is a planning document: it allows students to plan their academic programs; it allows the department to anticipate staffing needs. To see which courses are actually being offered in any specific term, it is necessary to consult the official course schedule for that term by visiting the Registrar's page. While the department makes every effort to conform to the course cycle, circumstances beyond the department's control sometimes require deviations from the cycle.

 

Course Cycle

Special note regarding LS 570: Internship in Librarianship. LS 570 is offered each fall, spring, and summer II.  Please contact your advisor regarding registration for LS 570 as this course requires an affiliation agreement prior to enrollment. Starting with Summer 2013 this is a capstone course.
