Course Descriptions

All courses described in this section are listed alphabetically by course prefix and are coded to guide students in course selections. Prefix letters designate the department responsible for teaching the course. The first digit of the number indicates the year in which the course is normally taken; the next two digits identify the specific course within the department; and the last digit indicates the credit value of the course in semester hours.

For example, course number MATH 1203 represents: "MATH" a mathematics course, "1" normally taken during the freshman year, "20" differentiating it from other freshman level courses in mathematics, and "3" receiving 3 semester hours of credit.

Courses designated as leadership courses by the Center for the Development of Christian Leadership will appear with an (L) after the course title.

Some courses will have specific prerequisites or corequisites listed in the course descriptions. Prerequisites must be taken before the student can enroll in the course in question while corequisites must be taken at the same time. Also included in the descriptions are the number of hours each week students can expect to spend in the classroom and how many they will spend in the laboratory for that course.

Unless otherwise indicated at the end of the course description, courses are normally offered in both the fall and spring semesters. The semester in which a course may be offered is subject to change depending on teacher availability and student demand. The University also reserves the right to add or cancel courses in all areas of the curriculum, depending on student demand or other circumstances requiring such action. Such adjustments are made only after careful study and with the student's best interest in mind.
