Not a concentration program

University Courses are sponsored by the College or University rather than by individual departments or programs and may be taught by members of the faculty in any academic unit on the Ann Arbor campus. The College offers as University Courses both full-term courses and mini-courses.

First-Year Seminars, open to all first-year students, and Collegiate Seminars, open to all students who have completed the Introductory Composition requirement, provide a unique opportunity to students seeking a small-class educational experience during their first college years. These seminars are offered each term on a variety of topics, and may be used to meet the Introductory Composition requirement (153), or part of the Area Distribution requirement in Humanities (UC 150, 250), Social Science (UC 151, 251), Natural Science (152, 252); some seminars may be used to meet other graduation requirements as well. The University Courses Division also sponsors a number of other full-term interdisciplinary courses covering a wide range of subjects and disciplines; many of these courses may also be used in partial fulfillment of the Distribution requirement.

University mini-courses are one-credit, special interest offerings which center upon a conference, group of lectures, or special exhibit, appear on short notice in a term, and are usually of 2-to-8-weeks duration. Mini-courses are offered mandatory credit/no credit and are normally excluded from area distribution and concentration credits. Information about upcoming mini-courses is available by dialing POINT 10 (764-6810). No more than two University mini-courses may be elected in one term.
