Håfa Adai!

Welcome to the beginning of an exciting and life-changing journey at the University of Guam/Unibetsedåt Guåhan. Your decision to further your education will most certainly be a rewarding one and may even take you in directions you had not previously considered.

The University of Guam Undergraduate Catalog is an invaluable resource for exploring your degree options and ensuring that you achieve your goals efficiently. It details the course requirements for each of the 25 undergraduate majors and 30 minors available at UOG and includes descriptions for every course offered. It also includes all of the support services, academic processes, and university policies that you need to know as a student.

This is the first-ever digital version of the UOG Catalog, which makes its contents more easily searchable, navigable, and accessible. As with the former printed versions, each academic year will have its own Catalog. You will use the 2020–2021 Catalog throughout the completion of your degree.

This publication is not your only resource. All of the faculty and staff at the University of Guam are here to help you succeed. Talk to your professors for academic and career guidance, visit the various centers, programs, and resources available on campus, and, as many of our most successful students have done, talk with your peers — upperclassmen and recent alumni in your degree program of interest.

Now that you are a scholar and a member of an academic community, it is important to be aware that this carries certain responsibilities and expectations. Please review the UOG Honor Code and join our commitment to treating one another with respect, maintaining academic integrity and truthfulness, and avoiding the mistreatment of others for any reason.

For more than 65 years, the University of Guam has prepared the leaders, creators, innovators, and thinkers for this extraordinary region of the globe with a strong commitment to academic excellence and student success. I am glad you have chosen to join us and our important mission. You will be challenged, you be inspired, and you will be amazed.

Biba UOG!
