SAMPLE COURSE DESCRIPTION
This listing describes the large range of courses available. Please note that this list of courses changes due to the dynamic nature of academic disciplines.
Each semester, the courses available are listed in the Schedule of Classes/UH Manoa Registration Homepage. Summer classes are listed in the Summer Session Catalog/MyUH Portal.
The course headings are abbreviated and include a two- to four-letter department code, course number (including alpha suffix, if applicable), title, level, credits, description, cross-listings, repeatability, prerequisites, co-requisites, grade option, frequency, and core designation. For further clarification, please refer to sample course description.
ABCD 123 Introduction to Courses (3) (2 Lec, 1 3-hr Lab) This sample describes an introductory course. Open to nonmajors if space available. Repeatable once. CR/NC only. Pre: 122, HIST 101 or GEOG 101, and SP 188 (or concurrent); or consent. Co-requisite: 123L. (Cross-listed as DCBA 123) DA
Course number (ie. 123) 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.
Course titles will be entered exactly as they appear on UHM forms, so it is important to use appropriate punctuation and capitalization. Diacritical and other punctuation marks that are not included on a keyboard are not available in the online Catalog. Two or more courses within the same subject should not share the same title. An exception is for honors courses and their non-honors counterparts. The word “online” should not be included in a course title to indicate that the course is offered via the internet.
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 (ie. (3))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 how many times indicates that a course may be taken again for additional credit toward a degree.
Grade option 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. A-F only indicates that the course is offered only for grade. Satisfactory only indicates whether the course is satisfactory or unsatisfactory.
Pre: indicates the prerequisites necessary to register for a course, which may include courses, class standing, or consent of the instructor, faculty advisor, 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.
Frequency of course will determine how often the course is offered. Fall only means that the course is offered only in the fall, Spring only means the course is offered only in the spring. 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.
Non-Introductory (NI) courses are 200-level with an explicitly stated course prerequisite, or 300-level or higher.
General Education designation (ie. DA)
indicates that the course meets a General Education Core or Graduation
requirement. See the key in the right column for designations. Courses
that meet the Focus requirement are not designated in the Catalog.
Focus-designations are in the Schedule of Classes/UH
