University of Maryland University College Asia offers courses that are primarily focused on the needs of our students. Courses are carefully selected and scheduled based on input from local Education Services Officers, assessment of the academic and logistical needs of students, and availability of qualified faculty members. Regularly taught courses in UMUC Asia are listed in this Catalog but courses listed in other UMUC catalogs may also be offered.
The prerequisites listed for many courses indicate the level of knowledge expected at the beginning of the course. Advanced courses, especially upper-level courses, assume relevant previous study and students are expected to perform at the level of the course regardless of their academic background. Students are advised to complete the Associate-Level General Education Requirements before enrolling in upper-level courses (numbered 300 or higher).
For upper-level courses, students should have writing ability equivalent to that achieved after completing WRTG 101 plus an additional writing course. An appropriate background in mathematics should be considered prerequisite to any course of a quantitative nature, numbered 200 or higher, such as economics, statistics, or computer and information science.
Students may be barred from enrollment in courses for which they do not have the necessary prerequisites.
In mathematics and foreign languages, courses build on specific knowledge gained by students in previous courses, and thus a student may not receive credit for a course that is a prerequisite for a course already completed.
Course numbers are designated as follows:
|100-199||Primarily freshman courses|
|200-299||Primarily sophomore courses|
|300-399||Upper level, primarily junior courses|
|400-499||Upper level, primarily senior courses|
Students enrolling in 300/400-level courses are expected to have writing and study skills commensurate with junior/senior-level work.
