The University of Alabama Academic CatalogAcademic Catalog Site
All courses that could be offered at The University of Alabama are listed in the Academic Catalog. You can view the Academic Catalog at https://catalog.ua.edu/. Note, not every course in the catalog is offered every semester. The catalog is used to determine what courses you might be interested in.
Schedule of ClassesSchedule of Classes Link
The Office of the Registrar has a instructions page on viewing the Schedule of Classes.
To see courses offered by UA during the semester you intend to study, you can view the Schedule of Classes. This can be done by logging into myBama and going to the Student tab and selecting Class Schedule in the Academic and Student Services channel.
Course SyllabusSyllabi Search Page
The catalog description contains a brief description of the course. For a complete description of the material covered by the course, you will need the syllabus. Many syllabi are archived at https://syllabi.ua.edu/front/#/. If you can not find the syllabus that you are looking for, contact International Student and Scholar Services for help.
Course EquivalenciesCourse Equivalencies Database
We recommend that you work with your faculty and advisors at your home institution to review course descriptions and syllabi to determine how UA courses may match to your home institution course. The University of Alabama’s Education Abroad office has established a course equivalencies table for UA students studying abroad.
While this list is meant for UA students going abroad, you can use this course equivalencies table to search your home institution and find equivalent courses that UA has already evaluated.
