Those courses noted with "UC" are not actual course titles, but representing a course that fulfills a specific University Curriculum requirement. Those in italics are business subset or major courses. Degree plans are based on the year of entry to SMU, and are subject to change. Current students should work with their academic advisor to create their four year degree plan.
