Essential Studies Courses
Essential Studies courses form the core education for UND undergraduate students.
To use a course to meet your Essential Studies (ES) requirements, it must be on the approved list in the semester you take it. This is important because the curriculum may change. A course that was on the approved list in the past may have been modified to meet a different ES requirement or it could have been dropped.
