Disciplinary Communication (DC) Requirement

The goal of this requirement is to ensure that students acquire the skills in writing and other forms of communication appropriate for their discipline. As such, the DC is automatically fulfilled by the completion of major requirements. Students satisfy the DC requirement by completing between one and three upper-division courses required for their major, totaling a minimum of 5 credits. The DC requirement must be taken at UCSC. Any exceptions or substitutions to the Disciplinary Communication requirement must be approved by the Committee on Courses of Instruction.

Disciplinary Communication requirements from 2019 onward are compiled here.
