Courses

UNIV 0204. Non-Coursed Based Option for MATH 0304. 2 Credit Hours (Lecture: 2 Hours, Lab: 2 Hours).

Non-course based option to support students enrolled in the Fundamentals of Algebra class. This class presents a study of relations and functions inequalities, algebraic expressions and equations (absolute value, polynomial, radical, rational), with a special emphasis on linear and quadractic expressions and equations.

UNIV 0301. Integrated Reading/Writing. 3 Credit Hours (Lecture: 3 Hours, Lab: 3 Hours).

skills. The focus of the course will be on applying critical reading skills for organizing, analyzing, and retaining material and developing written work appropriate to the audience, purpose, situation, and length of the assignment. The course integrates preparation in basic academic reading skills with basic skills in writing a variety of academic essays. This is a course with a required lab. The course fulfills TSI requirements for reading and/or writing.

UNIV 0331. Non-course Competency-Based Option and Intervention - BASE MATH. 3 Credit Hours (Lecture: 3 Hours, Lab: 3 Hours).

Topics in mathematics such as arithmetic operations basic algebraic concepts and notation, geometry and real an complex number systems for student who test on the TSI assessment at the Adult Basic Education Level.

UNIV 0332. Non-course Competence-Based Option and Intervention - BASE Writing. 3 Credit Hours (Lecture: 3 Hours, Lab: 3 Hours).

Development of college-level writing focusing on idea generation, drafting, organization, revision, and utilization of standard English for students who test on the TSI assessment at the Adult Basic Education Level.

UNIV 0334. Non-course Competence-Based Option and Intervention - BASE Reading. 3 Credit Hours (Lecture: 3 Hours, Lab: 3 Hours).

Development of reading and higher order thinking skills necessary for college readiness for students who test on the TSI assessment at the Adult Basic Education Level.

UNIV 1100. Transitioning to University Studies-Alternative First Year Seminar. 1 Credit Hour (Lecture: 1 Hour, Lab: 1 Hour).

Practical study designed to prepare the student for university life, aid in the development of skills for academic success, promote personal growth and responsibility, and encourage active involvement in the learning process.

UNIV 1102. Learning Frameworks I. 1 Credit Hour (Lecture: 1 Hour, Lab: 0 Hours).

A study of the 1) research and theory in the psychology of learning, cognition, and motivation; 2) factors that impact learning; and application of learning strategies. Theoretical models of strategic learning, cognition and motivation serve as the conceptual basis for the introduction of college-level student academic strategies. Students use assessment instruments (e.g., learning inventories) to help them identify their own strengths and weaknesses as strategic learners. Students are ultimately expected to integrate and apply the learning skills discussed across their own academic programs and become effective and efficient learners. Students developing these skills should be able to continually draw from the theoretical models they have learned.
