GSP Sample Curricula by Intended Major

Please refer to the grid below for a sample course schedule for each of the seven undergraduate colleges.   Each grid offers an overview of the most commonly taken courses during the first-year in each college.  Individual student schedules will vary based on specific major, math needed, and choice of cores/electives.  Students who are still deciding on a major will take a variety of introductory courses across majors which also satisfy NU Core courses in order to explore the disciplines while still making academic progress.
