Berry College Courses

Berry College Courses are those extending beyond the disciplinary boundaries of any one department and representing educational opportu­nities made available to students by the college as a whole. In this category are educational-growth offerings and thematic courses.

BCC courses may not be used in satisfaction of general-education requirements, other than electives. Only with the written permission of the appropriate school dean may BCC courses be used in the major or the minor.

The dean of academic services is the director of Berry College Courses, and further information about these offerings may be secured from that office.
