Graduation Planning

The CHC's flexible curriculum has the ability to combine with other degree programs in a variety of ways.  Everyone's path from their first year to graduation will be different.  The following templates are just three tools that you could use to help plan which courses you will take along your way.  It's helpful to remember that not even the Registrar's Office is able to forecast course offerings beyond six months with certainty, and that these templates are flexible, living documents that you will want to adjust as you discover new opportunities over your academic career. 

Remember that your CHC advisor is available to help guide you or answer questions you may have about what courses to take.  Additional information about coursework may be found at the UO Course Catalog.

 

Sample CHC Course Plans

Here are three hypothetical plans of CHC courses you can use as a road map. The CHC curriculum is flexible and will work in conjunction with your intended major.  Add your major's requirements to find your undergraduate path to graduation.  These programs are guides for illustrative purposes only.  Students should consult with their major advisor to more fully determine the best course path for them.
