At the bottom of this page, you will find courses offered in the upcoming term that do not have prerequisites (that is, there are no Sewanee courses that you must complete before taking these courses) and have available seats for first-year students. There are, however, a few things to note:

  • Courses marked with the "(AP/IB)" attribute may be taken by those first-year students who have earned either a 4 or 5 on the AP exam or a 5, 6, or 7 on the IB exam. You are encouraged to select these courses if you have taken the germane AP/IB exams (described on the Registrar’s page) and you have received an official score report.
  • Courses marked with the “(*)” attribute are advanced courses that require special placement by the academic department or program.
  • Courses listed under the "Advanced Foreign Language" category are here for the benefit of those students who placed into the highest level of a foreign language at Sewanee and are given more than one advanced language course from which to choose. Do not include these in your list of twelve courses; indicate your choice in the Foreign Language Placement section above the other course selection drop-down menus.
  • If you would like to take calculus this fall, please select only one of the following courses: MATH 101, MATH 102, or MATH 207. We will determine your calculus placement and choose the best class for you! 

Tips for Completing the Course Selection Form
  • Make sure that you are selecting twelve distinct courses on your Course Selection Form, and that no course appears more than once.
  • Have a look at the disciplines listed in all six drop-down menus. Note that some subjects or courses—particularly interdisciplinary ones—will appear in more than one drop-down menu. (A course may be listed in both Humanities and in Social Sciences, for example.)
  • Make sure to complete the entire form; the more information you provide about your interests and concerns, the more informed the Guides will be when building your schedule.
