ED 150  - Introduction to Education - 3 credits

ED 001 - First Year Workshop - 0 credits

Four other 3-credit courses that include core or other major requirements

First year Classes at UP are offered one, two, three, and sometimes four times a week. Labs for science courses meet once a week for a longer period of time, and are an additional 1 credit.

  • University Core requirements are a set of courses that all students at the University of Portland must complete.
  • Education Major requirements are the courses you need to complete for your specific education program.
  • Elective courses are any courses you take that do not fulfill any of your Core or Education Major requirements.

First Year Workshop: All freshman students are also registered for First Year Workshop (on your schedule, you will see that you are registered for a course numbered ED 001).This is your First Year Workshop class.
