Courses
The course offerings listed in this Catalog are subject to change without notice. For more current information, refer to the Schedule of Classes, published prior to each semester, and the Summer Session Catalog, published in April.

Course listings 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.

 

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) AH1

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 of Classes.
