The curriculum at Morris Brown College is organized under two divisions: lower and upper.
The Lower Division: The General Education Curriculum
The lower division embraces all work of the first two years that is designed to acquaint the student with those fields of human interest that influence present-day living. The lower division courses are a part of the General Education Program and together are referred to as the Core Curriculum. The lower division courses are designed:
- To prepare student for active participation in society as citizens.
- To furnish students with the background necessary for advanced study in selected subject matter areas of technical and professional specialization in accordance with their interest and aptitudes.
The Upper Division: The Major Programs of Study
The upper division courses are those that pertain to the student’s major program of study, including courses in the major and courses related to or supporting the major. The upper division courses allow students:
- To concentrate in selected fields of study important in the pre-service preparation of technical training and professions.
- To develop a knowledge base and skills required in certain professional fields.
Academic Programs: Majors and Concentrations
At Morris Brown College, a “major” is defined as a course of study in a knowledge field offered by an academic department and in which the student engages in advanced work in that field during the Junior and Senior years. A major requires a minimum of 66 semester credit hours earned in a single department or in closely related departments. No credit will be granted in major courses for grades below “C”.
Major Fields of study require “areas of concentration”. An area of concentration is a specialization area within a major.
Declaration of Major
Each student should make formal application to a major program of study at the end of the student’s second semester, but no later than the fourth semester of matriculation. A “Declaration of Major” or “Change of Major” form must be filed with the Office of the Registrar and the appropriate academic department. Each academic department reserves the right to approve or decline the student’s application to major in that department based on the department’s program entry criteria.
