Sample Course Description

Courses are titled in the following style:

ART 260 Painting 3 cr. (2+4P)

The first number in the course prefix, Art 260, is 2 which indicates that the course is a sophomore course; the 3 cr. indicates the course is a 3-credit course. The 2+4P means that the class meets for two hours per week for recitation and/or lecture and also requires 4 hours per week of “practice” (laboratory or field work).

Course numbers indicate the class rank:

100-199 – Freshman courses

200-299 – Sophomore courses

The letter “N” will be added as a suffix to the course number when the course credits are not applicable to the bachelor’s degrees, associate’s degrees, or certificates. Some courses may be offered once a year and are identified accordingly.
