UK Core Requirements

UK Core Course Requirements

There are some very good courses with direct relevance to an ENS Degree that would fulfill the Core requirements. These courses are listed below and would be used in advising ENS students during their first year at UK. The two courses preceded by an asterisk are electives in the ENS Area requirements and, importantly, would count towards the A&S requirement for 39 credits at the 300-level and above.

There will be opportunities for developing new UK Core courses within the ENS Program and having these cross-listed with various departments. This could take place through the ENS 300 Special Topics course. ENS 300 would also be useful for meeting the A&S B.A. requirement for courses at or above the 300-level.
