Courses of Study Archive

If you require a course description to accompany a transcript, past copies of the Courses of Study are available online. These are historical electronic documents that have not been updated in any way, so you will find the formatting different for each year. External links in the documents will not necessarily work. However, for those Courses of Study that are searchable, that function does work.
