Course Search

Important Notice:

The Course Search tool below is currently not including all courses available for Fall 2023.

Until this issue is resolved, please use the Class Search function in PAWS to find Fall 2023 courses that meet particular College Core requirements (you will have to search separately for Domain and Civic Responsibility designations).  You can also consult the Approved Courses List to identify courses that meet College Core requirements.

Choosing a College Core course is so much more than finding a course that meets a College Core requirement and fits your schedule; a real choice means selecting, among those courses that fit your schedule and meet the requirement, the courses that will benefit you the most.

College Core courses offer a wide array of benefits. They can help you build skills and knowledge to support your major, career, or application to graduate/professional school. They can help you explore other potential majors or minors or prepare you for a study-abroad experience or an internship. They can broaden your horizons, provide you with a new perspective, or allow you to pursue interests and passions outside of your major.

This search engine allows you to easily identify College Core courses that match your educational goals and then narrow those courses to the ones that will meet your outstanding College Core requirements.

All you have to do is to type in a search term that captures your interests, and then you can filter the results based on the Liberal Requirements met by courses or the semester the courses will be offered, or both. You can also filter the results to include only courses that have no prerequisites.

Please note that, although a course that disappears when you filter by semester is not being offered in the upcoming couple of semesters, it could be offered in a future semester, so be sure to check for this course again when you search the next time.

To learn about requirements met by courses not taught in the next three semesters, you can consult the Approved Courses for College Core webpage, which lists the course prefixes that carry automatic College Core designations and provides a link to a table with courses that satisfy College Core requirements other than those based on their course prefixes.
