Curriculum

Courses

Huntsman Scholars are required to take the courses listed below before graduation. Each of these courses offer a scholars-only section of the course which students are required to take instead of a regular section of the course.

If a scholars-only section of a course is not being offered a particular term or happens to be full, students must wait and take the scholars-only section of the course at a later time.  Students work closely with academic advisors to plan around this curriculum requirement.

If an incoming scholar has previously taken any of these courses before applying then they will not need to re-take the course in the scholars-only section as long as the previous grade for the course was a B or better.

Huntsman Scholar courses are not publicly available on MyUSU or Degree Works planning as they are “hidden” courses. Students must use a five-digit course registration number (CRN) given to them through an email once in the program to register for the course manually. Within MyUSU, students must select the “Enter CRN” tab in order to proceed with course registration.

Labs

Huntsman Scholars must take the following labs in a sequential order. The labs are one semester each, and are designed to provide an integrative perspective of skills and behaviors central to success in business and in life. Faculty may design labs with great flexibility in terms of duration, classroom time, and experiential activities. The labs are designed to be taken in sequence, but participants entering the program in year two or three will be required to double up on labs during one academic year.

Huntsman Scholar labs are not publicly available on MyUSU or Degree Works planning as they are “hidden” courses. Students must use a five-digit course registration number (CRN) given to them through an email once in the program to register for the lab manually. Within MyUSU, students must select the “Enter CRN” tab in order to proceed with lab registration.
