Course list and credit requirements

Dual-application courses

Each student may count one dual-application course toward his or her 36-credit-hour core requirement. A dual-application core course satisfies core course requirements in two knowledge areas. For example, History 1301, Latin America, would satisfy three credit hours in the Histories of Cultures and Societies knowledge area and the Diverse Cultures knowledge area. A student who takes the dual-application core course satisfies the 36 credit hours of core requirements by taking 33 credits of core courses. A dual-application course may not simultaneously fulfill the core knowledge area of Theology and Human Nature and Ethics.

Please note: Courses are periodically added and removed from the list of approved courses. Once a UCCS course has been discontinued, it is no longer a valid course option for UCCS unless taken before the discontinuation.
