Majors in the College of Natural and Health Sciences (CNHS) approach the development of the student’s mastery of both the subject matter (content) and learning outcomes in a distinctive way. Students are introduced to the disciplines that together make up the liberal arts and sciences through courses in the Colloquy on Integrated Learning. They then move through a sequence of required and elective courses that introduce increasingly advanced ideas and theory, methods of inquiry and research, and reflective skills. Finally, these majors build the combination of a mastery of theory and content with the opportunity to apply this learning through the internship and courses that require students to draw widely on their educational experience and bring together its various forces.

Internship

Internships for academic credit add a significant experience in the workplace to a student’s education. They provide the opportunity to develop professional attitudes, behavior, skills, and confidence. Internships also introduce the broad range of career possibilities available to the student with a University degree. Students come to a new understanding of the relationship between education and the world of work.

Graduation Requirements

To earn a baccalaureate degree at Zayed University, the student must have a minimum GPA of 2.0 and have demonstrated proficiency in both the English and Arabic languages through satisfactory completion of course work. The student must fulfill all core curriculum requirements and satisfy the competencies in Zayed University Learning Outcomes specified by the major. In addition, the student must complete all requirements for the major, including the internship and the achievement of the Major Learning Outcomes.

A student must complete a minimum of 120 credit hours to graduate. Normally, a degree program may not require a student to complete more than 132 credit hours for graduation. Students themselves may add credit hours if appropriate, such as for example the students enrolled in Honors Thesis for the International Studies degree program within the College of Sustainability Sciences and Humanities. These are indicated in the sections of this catalog devoted to those programs. The student should consult with a college advisor on program and course requirements for graduation.
