A Quick Reference Guide to the Course Description Section of the Catalog
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:
Mathematical Sciences (M)
