Similarly at Dominican University.  And for us, "Organization of Information" is one of the core (required) courses.
 
We have also been working on developing career pathways where a package of courses is suggested for students interested in focusing on Cataloging/Tech Services.  Dr. Gertrude Koh, professor in Dominican's GSLIS, has developed three such sample pathways, listing suggested related cataloging/technical services courses for these packages.  A small committee of us is further developing the document so we are not yet "ready for prime time."
 
I know this is expanding the thread a bit but I was wondering if others of you are doing something similar in developing a career pathway of courses for Cataloging/Tech Services,  and would be willing to share your thoughts. 
 
Cordially,

It depends on what you meant by a cataloging course.  If you meant broadly a
course covering the characteristics of bibliographic info, cataloging
principles (as part of general principles of info organization), components of
a catalog record (and other bibliographic records), tools used in cataloging
(e.g., bibliographic standards, encoding standards, controlled vocabularies),
and classification theory, then, yes, we do have such a required course at the
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.  After all, many faculty members and
students refer to this course (Organization of Information) as a "cataloging"
course.
