First-year Course Listings

Course Offerings

These are all the courses offered in the upcoming term that require no prerequisites (that is, there are no Sewanee courses that must be taken before you can get into these courses) and have some available seats for first-year students.

* Courses marked with the "(AP)" attribute may be taken by those first-year students who have earned high passing scores on AP/IB exams. You are encourage to select them if you have taken the germane AP/IB exams (described on the Registrar’s page) and you have received an official score report.  

** Courses listed under the "Taught in a 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. 

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.
  • Note that some subjects or courses—particularly interdisciplinary ones—will appear in more than one drop-down menu (for instance, courses listed in both Humanities and in Social Sciences).
  • If you need clarification or assistance with any part of your form, please contact of the Academic Guides via email or phone.
  • 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.
