SPLH Advising

Session for Freshmen and Sophomores

Students FOLLOWING the KU Core

Spring 2014

Ku core1
KU Core

  • Current Freshmen will be following the Core

  • Sophomores need to officially “opt in” to the Core

  • Major and minor requirements do NOT change

    • i.e., your SPLH course requirements are the same as with the previous curriculum

  • You can find more information about KU Core at http://kucore.ku.edu/

  • Ku core2
    KU Core

    • Core advising information for SPLH students

      • KU Core tutorial and Advising Worksheets currently available on our website: http://splh.ku.edu/Undergrad/documents/KU_Core_Instructions.pdf

      • Freshmen – Use your current DPR to see what KU Core Goals you are satisfying with your current enrollments

      • Sophomores: Your DPR will show KU Core requirements if you run a “What if” DPR for the current term (Fall 2013)

    Ku core important notes
    KU Core: Important Notes

    • Some courses may count for multiple learner outcomes

      • HOWEVER, you can only count a Core course once

      • You pick where you want the course to count

      • E.g., LING 106 meets Goal 1 (Outcome 1) and Goal 4 (Outcome 2)

        • You can only count it in one place

        • YOU choose EITHER Goal 1 or Goal 4

        • Your DPR will make an initial placement for you based on where it “thinks” you need to use it.

    Ku core important notes1
    KU Core: Important Notes

    • Major and Minor requirements can meet KU Core requirements

      • E.g., SPLH 261 and SPLH 566 meet Goal 3 Social and Behavioral Sciences

      • SPLH 497, SPLH 498 and SPLH 660 meet Goal 6

      • You do NOT have to choose here

      • The course can count for KU Core and for your Major/Minor requirements

    Ku core important notes2
    KU Core Important Notes

    • New courses are being added to KU Core each month

    • Courses that you have taken that don’t currently count, COULD count in the future

    • re-check http://kucore.ku.edu/courses regularly (e.g., end of this semester, middle of next semester) to see if any of your completed courses fulfill Core requirements

    • Plan to take SPLH 663 Hearing Science in Spring 2015 (or 2014 if you’re a sophomore and have completed 120 and 320)

      • SPLH 120 and 320 are prerequisite to 663

        • Again, make sure you take these in Sophomore year (if not before)

      • SPLH 663 is a prerequisite to SPLH 668

      • SPLH 663 is ONLY offered in the SPRING

      • So, taking SPLH 663 in Spring of your SOPHOMORE year will give you flexibility in future planning

      • SPLH 662 is only offered Fall semester
