Course Information


Special Courses

Pitt-Greensburg offers a variety of special courses that students may use to enhance their educational experience. The special courses include independent studies, internships, excellence courses, study abroad courses, and capstone courses. Most of the special courses are optional, but for some majors (e.g. criminal justice) an internship is required, and the capstone course is required of all majors.

An independent study allows a student to explore a topic for which no course is available at Pitt-Greensburg or extend the exploration of a topic begun in a regular course. To arrange for an independent study, a student must find a faculty sponsor and work with the sponsor to develop a course plan. Independent study courses are available in every department. See an advisor for more details.

Internships allow students to earn credits toward graduation while gaining on-the-job experience in their majors. An internship is required in some majors (e.g. criminal justice and the journalism track in English writing), but it is available as an elective in most majors. Students are expected to find their own internship opportunities, but faculty advisors and the Office of Career Services may be aware of employers looking for interns and can provide suggestions about seeking an internship. Some departments ask students to complete an internship application. See a faculty advisor for more information.

Pitt-Greensburg students have an opportunity to study abroad in a country/region of their choice. Academic credits are earned while abroad and will transfer directly back into the student’s academic degree requirements. See the study abroad coordinator for more information.

As part of the new Pitt-Greensburg curriculum that took effect in fall 1999, every Pitt-Greensburg student must complete a senior seminar or a senior project as a capstone to the work in the major program. The faculty views the capstone course as a significant enhancement to the UPG degree program because it provides students with the opportunity to bring together the themes and skills of the major. Capstone work typically involves research and both written and oral reports.
