General Education: University Core Curriculum
As the foundation of General Education, the University Core Curriculum engages students in the liberal arts tradition of transcending department and major by exploring new ways to understand their place in a complex world. All freshmen are required to take the University Core Curriculum at Samford (22 credits). It is recommended that students be registered for Cultural Perspectives I (UCCP 101 ) in their first semester. They should also register for Communication Arts I (UCCA 101 ) or Communication Arts II (UCCA 102 ), depending on their placement. Students should consult their academic advisors for recommended scheduling.
