Schools and Courses of Study
The following pages provide information on departments, faculty and courses in each of Susquehanna’s three schools: the School of Arts, Humanities and Communications, the School of Natural and Social Sciences and the Sigmund Weis School of Business. More detailed information on the faculty is available in the directory section.
Course Numbers. Except in music, all hyphenated courses are part of a two-semester sequence. Students may only take the second semester of a hyphenated course if they have successfully completed or exempted the first semester. Two-semester courses that have a comma separating their numbers do not need to be taken in sequence, and a student may choose to take only one of the two courses.
Sample Course Sequences. Many departments include sample course sequences to provide future majors with a general timeline of courses and activities to fulfill major and Core curriculum requirements. Students consult with their major advisors to develop their actual schedules based on requirements, course availability and individual needs. In many cases students may be exempt from certain Core curriculum or introductory level courses based on previous advanced course work in high school or performance on placement tests.
