STRUCTURE OF UNDERGRADUATE ACADEMIC PROGRAMS

​​

The structure of undergraduate academic programs consists of the following elements:

  • University Requirements: set of core academic subjects that all PSU students in a College must take.
  • College Requirements: set of courses designed to meet the specific needs of individual colleges.
  • Program Requirements: set of courses designed to meet the specific needs of individual degree programs
  • Major or Field of Specialization Requirements: set of core subjects that constitute the ​main areas of knowledge in a particular field of specialization of each academic degree.
  • Electives: a discrete number of courses allotted in each academic degree that can expand the students' knowledge in their fields of specialization or to broaden the range of their intellectual pursuits.
  • Experiential Learning or Community Link: set of programs or activities targeted to enrich the students' knowledge through practical experience, observations of real work behaviors, and hands-on application of knowledge gained from classroom lectures and discussions to actual situations such as solving real organization problems and concerns
  • Language of Instruction: except for those subjects that are devoted to the study of the Arabic Language and Islamic Studies, the medium of instruction at PSU is English​
