Your degree program at WGU is comprised of a number of Courses of Study (COS). Each Course of Study contains all of the necessary components for competency development in each subject area, including: learning resources, course mentoring, community support, and a plan of study to help you establish a manageable pace for your learning as you prepare for the final assessment.
