Upper-Division UCA Core

Quick Guide to the UCA Upper-Division Core

The table on this page lists all UCA courses that fulfill one or more requirements in the upper-division (UD) UCA Core. The list is updated from time and time and is intended to be accurate as of the list-updated date indicated on this page. Note, though, that your program’s Academic Map, the Undergraduate Bulletin, and your academic advisor remain important sources of information about UD UCA Core courses specific to your major. For those who wish to be able to print the list, a PDF copy is available from this link: Printable PDF. Note that, generally, the PDF is updated annually, whereas the table below may be updated more frequently.

Table Legend

  • SUBJ (subject)
  • CNUM (course number)
  • TITLE (title of the course, sometimes abbreviated)
  • CAT1, CAT2 indicate the UD UCA Core category or categories for which the course fulfills a requirement: I = Critical Inquiry, C = Communication, D = Diversity, R = Responsible Living, and Z = UCA Core Capstone. Since a UD UCA Core course may fulfill up to two categories, using two columns makes sorting for a category easier.
  • NON-MAJR includes a “Y” to identify a UD UCA Core course that is available for students not in a particular major or minor; “N” identifies a course that is available only to students in particular majors or minors.
  • RESTR indicates whether or not the course requires any prerequisites or has any other registration restriction. Courses that are available to non-majors/-minors and have “Y” in the RESTR column generally have prerequisites that are part of the lower-division UCA Core. For specific information about prerequisites or other restrictions, see the course pages in the Undergraduate Bulletin.

List updated: May 17, 2024

Typing a term in the Search field will—in a rudimentary way—filter the table. For example, if you type BIOL, you will filter the list to include only records that include the letters “biol” (upper- or lowercase).
