COURSE DESCRIPTIONS COURSE CODING AND NUMBERING SYSTEM*
A four-digit numbering system is used to identify courses. The first digit designates the level of the course.

1 = First year
2 = Sophomore
3 = Junior
4 = Senior

The second digit designates the number of credit hours the course offers. The third and fourth digits are specific course identification numbers used for each department's course listing.

To illustrate this system, consider a course numbered 3312; this means the course is of junior level, worth 3 credit hours, and is a course identified by the number "12". The Foundations for Excellence course (FOUN 10.500/10.501) is designated as a first year level course worth 0.5 credit hours and is identified by the number "00" in the fall and "01" in the spring.

The three figures in parentheses after the number of each course indicate the number of credit hours for the course, the number of lecture hours each week, and the number of laboratory or activity hours each week, respectively. Example: (3-2-2) means 3 credit hours, 2 lecture hours, and 2 lab hours.

Cross-listed courses in other departments are listed in parentheses following the course title. Semester and/or years that courses are offered follow the course descriptions and are subject to change. Check with the specific department for changes. Certain departments of the University offer learning opportunities on an individual-student basis. These courses require approval of the department and are restricted to juniors and seniors.

The student will conduct an independent research project; selection of the project will be determined by student interest and instructor approval.

Experimental courses may also be designed with a "9" as the third digit. These courses may be offered three times before they must be reviewed as a regular departmental offering.
