Upper Division Core

  • Advanced upper division courses: Two classes of ACS 3000/4000 level coursework, i.e., ACS 3000, 3380, 4000 (6 hours). These courses are offered on an irregular basis; however, one upper-division ACS course is usually offered each Fall/Spring semester. Topics for ACS 3000 and ACS 4000 will vary from semester to semester. These courses will normally be taken following successful completion of the foundational sequence of ACS 2000; ACS 2500 or 2520; History 2050 and 2060; and ENG 2680 or 310
