The University of Utah is honored to have been invited to bring its record of academic excellence to the Republic of Korea with the opening of its new Asia Campus. The University of Utah offers the best possible academic experience. Your education is based on more than just the classes you take or the grades you receive. The programs and curriculum focus on critical thinking, group projects, peer feedback, and mentoring. No matter where you study, you will get the same premier University of Utah experience and the same internationally accredited degree!
First-year students complete a set of foundational courses: A two-three semester sequence on introductory major courses; courses to develop academic writing skills; and also math and science. The second year is focused on coursework for the major. Students will typically spend two semesters, roughly around their third year of studies, at the University of Utah Salt Lake City campus. The fourth year integrates degree coursework with career readiness and preparation.
Lower-division requirements are usually taken toward the beginning of your time at the U. Students who transfer to the U from other institutions with an Associate’s Degree or more may have these requirements already met. Students should talk to the Academic Advisor if they think courses from another institution haven’t transferred and should.
