Sample Course Description Entry

  • Each course is identified by a three-letter prefix: MAC in the example above. If you know the course prefix, you can look in the Index to Course Prefixes (3-4) to find which department or departments offer courses using that prefix. Courses using the MAC prefix, for example, are taught in the Department of Mathematics.
  • The FIRST DIGIT of the course number identifies the level of the course (here 2000 or freshmen/sophomore level).
  • To locate departments or content areas, please use the Index of Course Descriptions on the opposite page.
  • General Education Categories are as follows:
    Composition (C)
    Mathematical Sciences (M)
