Catalog Descriptions of Generic Courses - 1N3

Generic courses are those courses whose titles identify a general topical area, e.g., Special Topics in Speech Communication, or Readings in Construction, and which are variable in course content within that topical area. Regarding such courses,

  1. Catalog course descriptions of generic courses are to be written in a standard form clearly indicating that the course is variable in content, and hence can be taken more than once without repeating material;

  2. A list of generic courses is to be maintained by the Curriculum Council subject to a periodic review by the Undergraduate Courses Committee;

  3. Courses on the generic course list will be recognized as generic courses and provision made for transcripts to show the content of the generic course or courses a student has taken.

Approved by Chancellor effective 8/10/83
This policy was issued on February 1, 1996, replacing the April 30, 1984 version.
