Choosing First-Semester Courses

The specific requirements for the first-semester courses for each of the Paul College majors are listed below. In every major there is an opportunity to choose at least one Discovery Program Course.

A typical first semester Paul College schedule consists of four 4-credits courses and two 1-credit courses for a total of 18 credits. First year students traditionally take courses at the 400 and 500 level. 

MATH 420 or MATH 424A

During Orientation you will be required to choose a Math course, either Finite Math [MATH 420] or Calculus for Social Sciences [MATH 424A]. An overview of each course can be found here. Review the information prior to Orientation and come prepared with which course you plan to take first semester.

ENGL 401

All students are required to complete ENGL 401 during their first year. Due to the availability of ENGL 401 only half of the first year class will take this course during the first semester. Therefore, all students must come prepared to Orientation with alternative Discovery program courses to complete their schedule.

*If you have received AP credit or transfer credit for ENGL 401 you must submit an official transcript to UNH in order to satisfy the requirement. Failure to provide documentation will result in you taking ENGL 401 at UNH.

DISCOVER PROGRAM COURSES

All students are required to choose at least four discovery course of interest prior to Orientation. Your final choice of discovery course will be made in consultation with your academic advisor. Please visit the Undergraduate Catalog to read more about each course.

Whittemore School of Business and Economics

The basic purpose of the undergraduate curricula in the Whittemore School is to combine the breadth of liberal education with professional training in the following fields:

Business Administration B.S.

Economics B.A.; B.S.

Hospitality Management B.S.

To achieve this balance, undergraduates enrolled in the Whittemore School must take a substantial part of their course work in other colleges/schools in the University in order to fulfill the general education requirements. Beyond those requirements, students are encouraged to elect additional courses in the arts, the behavioral and social sciences, the humanities, mathematics, and the natural sciences. Students may also combine a major with a dual major in International Affairs. Consult an International Affairs (IA) adviser at June orientation regarding the dual major.

Choosing First-Semester Courses

In planning your first-semester schedule, you will need to think and read carefully about both “major” and “nonmajor” courses/subject areas. To become familiar with those courses required in your major, begin with review of the current Undergraduate Catalog. This will provide you with a program description of your major, complete requirements, information about career options, special programs, and graduate training opportunities. Next, see course descriptions for a specific explanation of each course in your major. Remember that during your first year you will normally select courses numbered at the 400 level only.

To choose nonmajor courses, you should think and read about other academic subject areas that interest you, using the Discovery Program (core university curriculum) requirements and the course descriptions in the catalog. Choose six to eight gen eds that appeal to you for any of the following reasons:

  • You have studied the subject in high school and wish to pursue it in further depth;
  • The course looks interesting;
  • You wish to explore other majors, either for the purpose of adding a second major or for moving toward another major (should you change your mind about the program in which you are now enrolled);
  • The course may be useful to you in complementing your primary academic focus.

At Orientation, you will work with an academic adviser to choose your gen eds from these six to eight courses. You will receive more information at Orientation. Since spaces are limited in certain major (core) courses and in English 401, you should be aware that you may not receive your first choice in these areas in the fall. The advisers in the Whittemore School will be able to give you updated information at Orientation about space availability and can help you choose alternatives as needed. Two required courses—English 401, and MATH 424A (calculus) or MATH 420 (finite mathematics)—must be taken the first year.

A normal course load is 16 credits, usually consisting of four 4-credit courses.

You need to print out your WSBE worksheet, ready on April 29, prior to attending June Orientation.

For those taking,French or Spanish first semester, you must take the French and spanish placement test prior to your orientation session. your advisor will have your result at orientation.
