Course Cycles

Course Cycle

The department's course cycle is a planning document. It allows students to plan their academic programs and 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.

The following are course cycles for each type of degree:
