Discovery Program Course Clusters

Discovery Course Cluster lists were developed to help students explore their interests when looking for courses that satisfy Discovery requirements. These are targeted to all students, and not constraining or required but rather a resource for students and their advisors. We hope you find these lists helpful. Please let us know if you have suggestions for other topic areas of interest. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Each new incoming class is bound by its own set of requirements, and therefore you will always refer to your enrollment year catalog and guidelines while an undergraduate student at UNH. Discovery Program requirements apply to students entering UNH in the fall of 2010, and after.
