Course number reflects course level (see Course
Numbering System below). An A following the number designates a
Selected Studies (honors) section. An L following the number
designates a laboratory course that is companion to a lecture course
bearing the same number. All other suffixes (B-K, M-U, and
W-Z) mark separate sections of an alpha course, each having
a distinctive content such that a student may earn credit toward the
degree for each section taken.
Roman numerals (I, II) indicate the level of a
course in a sequence, e.g., Calculus II is a more advanced course
following an introductory-level course.
Credit hours are shown in parentheses following
the course title. Variable credit courses are designated (V). Some
classes break down the time spent in lecture and laboratory.
Description includes class size/format (e.g.,
lecture, discussion, seminar, lab, workshop, studio) and major subjects
covered. Other features may include learning experiences (e.g., two term
papers, guest lecturers).
Repeatable indicates that a course may be taken
again for additional credit toward a degree.
CR/NC only indicates that the course is offered
only for credit (CR) or no credit (NC). Credit is given if a student
achieves a passing grade. If CR/NC only is not indicated, the
course uses the A-F grading system.
Pre indicates the prerequisites necessary to
register for a course, which may include courses, class standing, or
consent of the instructor, faculty adviser, or department chair. Some
prerequisites may be taken concurrently. When a department has a
prerequisite common to a large group of courses, that fact is noted in
italics preceding these course listings.
Co-requisite indicates that the course must be
taken in conjunction with another course.
Alt. years means that the course is offered
only every other year.
Cross-listed indicates a course that fulfills a
requirement in more than one department and specifies the alternate
departmental course listing.
Core designation indicates that the course
meets a General Education Core requirement. See below for a key to core
designations. Courses that meet the writing-intensive requirement are
not designated in the Catalog. WI-designations are in the Schedule
