Course descriptions are arranged alphabetically by the first letter of the course designator, i.e., biology courses are designated by "BIOL" and are listed under "B".
Numbers following the title, i.e., (3-2-4), indicate the number of weekly class hours (first figure), the number of weekly laboratory or practicum hours (second figure), and the credit hour value expressed in semester hours (third figure). For example, (3-2-4) means the course has three class hours, two laboratory or practicum hours, and four semester hours of credit. Parentheses enclosing the third figure, i.e., (3-0-(3)), indicate that, although the course has a semester hour value equal to that number for enrollment purposes, the course does not produce credit toward certificates, baccalaureate or associate degrees. Parentheses enclosing figures one, two, or three, i.e., (0-(3-9)-(1-3)), indicate that the class or laboratory/practicum hours and the credit hours are variable within the range of numbers given.
Courses numbered 6000 and above are open only to graduate students. Courses with 5000 numbers are open to both graduate and advance-standing undergraduate students. In these courses, however, graduate students must do more extensive reading, prepare additional reports, and produce papers or other projects requiring more intensive research.
