Course Descriptions


Course numbers are ordered with the first digit of a course number indicates the class level of the course. Permission to take sophomore courses is granted to freshmen provided they have met the prerequisites. Junior and senior level courses are considered upper-division courses with numbers in the 300s and 400s.

The following set of courses constitutes the core curriculum outlined in the Degree and Core Curriculum Information  section. Course descriptions are provided here for those core courses not contained among the offerings of academic departments. Core courses offered by particular departments are indicated here only by title and a cross-reference to the departmental listing where the full course description appears. All credit hours are stated in semester hours.

The ‘S’ and ‘W’ beside the course title in a major department indicates that the course satisfies the ‘speech intensive’ and the ‘writing intensive’ components of the core curriculum for that major.

Courses that satisfy core distribution requirements are listed in the Degree and Core Curriculum Information  section, and the course description will contain the appropriate code (e.g. see ART 111 Introduction to Art with FAR):

FAR - Fine arts distribution requirement
HUM - Humanities distribution requirement
LAB - Natural science lab distribution requirement
SSC - Social science distribution requirement
