LIT 110L & LIT 120L Lose American & European Group (Y) GER Designation for F’11

Starting F’11, LIT 110L: Intro to Lit and LIT 120L: Intro to Poetry will no longer fill the American & European (Y) general education requirement. Faculty Senate’s Academic Standards & Curriculum Review Committee (ASCRC) removed that designation from these two courses for the Fall. Students who complete one or both of these classes during Summer 2011 will still fulfill their (Y) requirements.

Please note both of these courses will still count as Approved Writing Classes and Literary and Artistic Studies (L) courses.

Interactive Suggested GER Courses for First-Year Students Site Goes Live

In an effort to combine several different sources for information concerning GER requirements, I’ve sent up GER Group specific pages with rollovers that pop up with official course descriptions from the UM Catalog. The list of classes is not all inclusive and is derived from the Suggested GER Courses for First-Year publication.

To find the page,  click the “General Education Requirements” title on the top right of this page or the link above.

To view, course descriptions, do not click, but instead hover over the blue course number to activate the rollover.

New Transfer Credit Evaluation Designations

Transfer Credit Evaluation

If a transfer course is equivalent to a UM course, it will be listed as such on the evaluation.  Transfer courses without UM equivalencies are listed as elective credit.  Elective credit was previously listed as 199 (lower division) or 399 (upper division).   These numbers are no longer used as a result of the new MUS common course numbering system.  The new codes designating elective credit are as follows:

TR1 – Lower-Division Elective (freshman level)

TR2 – Lower-Division Elective (sophomore level)

TR3 – Upper-Division Elective (junior level)

TR4 – Upper-Division Elective (senior level)

Courses accepted toward UM’s general education requirements are designated by symbols after the course number, such as TR1H, TR2S, etc.   Courses that are considered double dippers carry both notations – i.e., HY counts as Historical & Culture Studies (H) and also the American & European  Perspective (Y).
