The University Catalog is like a road map, leading to the goal of an academic degree. You will consult this catalog to find what degrees are offered, to see what courses to take, to read course descriptions, and to find what electives may interest you. Here also you will find graduation requirements and academic policies and procedures. Your professors and academic advisor further elucidate the contents of the Catalog, and are your guides on the road to fulfilling your academic goals.
