Course Catalog

The course catalog lists all courses offered at the institution in defined categories, such as semester and subject matter.

If your institution licenses community engagement, the organization catalog lists all organizations at the institution in defined categories, such as organization type or semester availability.

You can search for courses or organizations using a keyword or a specific category. The links in the catalog display instructor information and a course description. You may be able to enroll, preview, or log in to a course depending on how your institution customizes Blackboard Learn.

Your institution might choose to use a different catalog or no catalog at all.

Browse the Course Catalog

Click View Course Catalog on the gateway page. Or, log in and open the Courses tab or the Community tab to browse the listings.
