I'm a little confused- didn't he pick his classes? My older dd goes to a small college, and my younger dd to a very large college, but they both pick their own classes each semester.

Same here (medium private school)- ds18 got to pick all his classes both semesters he's gone so far (as well as the time slots so he chose when his classes met). He needs 56 core hours; took all core his first semester, and 9 core 2nd, and is taking another core at CC this summer to slowly eat away at them, but still getting to take one or two classes in his major each semester. Many kids were going to take all core at least freshman year to get a bunch done but he chose to space his out so he could take some in his major the whole time. FWIW.

Both my kids, in their first year of university, had no choice in their courses.

In some majors, in order to get the progression of prerequisits in for higher level classes, you have to take major related classes earlier on than they do in other programs... that was the case when I was studying Music Therapy 30 years ago, and many of us in that major ended up taking core courses during Junior and Senior year before we finished them up.

Some kids have thier core class spread out over the 4 years
so they have a mix.
Others have completed all the core subjects by the end of thier soph.

It depends on the majo6 and college as well.

DD majored in nursing so all the major classes were on a very strict schedule--but freshman year she did have 2 electives, which would have been the core courses.

He didn't get to choose.

Perhaps they don't have typical core course titles, but are core substitutes.
