University Curriculum

The University Curriculum (UC) requirements are for students who matriculated into SMU between Fall 2016 and Spring 2020.

The UC's main coursework components are Foundations, Breadths, and Depths. In addition, seven Proficiencies and Experiences can be satisfied through course-based or non-course-based experiences. The UC emphasizes Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs), which identify what students think about, learn and experience. Most students will complete these outcomes through credit-hour accumulation, but some may choose non-course or non-credit activities. The UC can be met through work in a student's major(s) or minor(s), elective courses, or approved activities.
