Reading Course Numbers
Each course is designated by a Subject Code and a three-digit number. The Subject Code represents the teaching unit offering the course (e.g., ANTH-xxx Anthropology). The middle three numbers identify the level of the course as follows:
xx.000-xx.099 = no credit earned toward a degree
xx.100-xx.299 = undergraduate introductory or undergraduate foundation courses
xx.300-xx.499 = undergraduate upper-level or undergraduate advanced courses
xx.500-xx.599 = graduate courses that allow qualified, advanced undergraduates
xx.600-xx.799 = graduate courses to which undergraduate students usually are not admitted
A course section is indicated by three final digits:
ANTH-110 001 Culture: The Human Mirror FA3
|ANTH||=||Teaching Unit Prefix|
|FA3||=||General Education Foundational Area|
Information on General Education areas for undergraduates admitted for Fall 1989 or after may be found at the General Education Program home page.
