Core Curriculum

Entry Year Experience

USM now offers a new learning opportunity for entering students, the Entry Year Experience requirement.  All entering students with fewer than 24 credit hours are required to complete an Entry Year Experience course in their first semester at USM.

Entry Year Experience (EYE) courses are theme-based and employ a variety of perspectives to explore a significant question about human cultures and the natural world. EYE courses aid students in their transition to college in an academically rigorous context emphasizing critical reading, thinking, and writing.
