Course Descriptions

The sections to the left under 'Course Descriptions' describe Courses of Study (majors, minors, course offerings, special programs) of the College.

Course Numbering System
A three-digit system is used for numbering courses; the first digit indicates the level of the course. Course levels are: 
  • 100: Introductory level courses recommended to first-year students and having no prerequisites except when courses form a sequence, such as first-year language sequence.
  • 200: Introductory and intermediate courses, which have some prerequisites or which require class standing above first-term students.
  • 300: Advanced courses, with one or more prerequisites in specific courses or in general educational preparation and maturity. Courses at this level are both for majors and for any student with the requisite preparation.
  • 400: Advanced studies (College Honors Program)
