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 (UCT 101 ) in their first semester. They should also register for University Core: Rhetoric (UCR 101 ) or University Core: Seminar (UCS 102 ), depending on their placement. Students should consult their academic advisors for recommended scheduling.

General Education: Distribution Areas

The standard general education curriculum for Samford students is detailed in the table linked below and, as such, is part of most degree programs offered. However, some schools, departments, degrees, majors, or minors may require variations to the standard. Please consult those department sections to see how general education variations may apply. See table footnotes for additional information.
