Course Listing Explanations


Courses numbered in the 1000s and 2000s are LOWER DIVISION courses; those numbered in the 3000s and 4000s are UPPER DIVISION courses. Freshmen and sophomores may enroll in upper division courses if they have the necessary prerequisites. Undergraduate students are required to complete 40 upper division credit hours to meet graduation requirements.

The LAST DIGIT of the undergraduate course number indicates the NUMBER OF SEMESTER CREDIT HOURS a course carries (e.g. ACCT 1013 is a 3-hour course). Where a “-” is used instead of the last digit, the hours of the course can vary according to the arrangement listed in the schedules.

INDEPENDENT STUDY COURSES are identified for undergraduate credit with number 499-, except in the Physical Science Department where they are identified by the number 289-, and are limited to 3 credit hours except for an Honors Project which may be 4 credit hours. The course title is identified in the approved proposal and the course may be repeated for credit with change of topic.

COOPERATIVE EDUCATION COURSES are identified with the number 495-. They may not exceed 3 credit hours. The course title identifies the department in which credit is received and the course may be repeated for credit with change of topic or cooperative agency.

SELECTED TOPIC COURSES are identified with number 288- for lower division and 488- for upper division. These courses are listed in the schedule as offered with the particular selected topic identified in the course title and may be repeated for credit with change of topic.

WORKSHOPS/SEMINARS are identified by the number 299- for lower division credit, 399- for upper division credit. The title identifies the course content and these courses may be repeated for credit with change of topic.

The NUMBER OF SEMESTER CREDIT HOURS for a course is indicated in parentheses following the undergraduate course title.

PREREQUISITES, if any, for enrolling in a course are stated in the course description. CONSENT indicates required approval by a division chairperson, program director, or school director unless stated otherwise.

A course available for registration in more than one department is printed with full description in the primary department. It is listed in the others with a CROSS REFERENCE. Students have the option to register for the course in the department with the cross reference if they so specify.

A COURSE FAILING TO GAIN A SUFFICIENT NUMBER OF STUDENTS MAY BE CANCELLED AND WITHDRAWN FROM THE SCHEDULE OF OFFERINGS FOR ANY SEMESTER OR SESSION.
