Courses of Instruction

Course Numbering System

Each course at the University has two numbers. One designates the college and department of which it is part; one specifies the subject matter of the particular course. For instance:

3300:220 English Literature

In the above example, the first four digits of the number (3300) indicate the department. In this case, 3300 represents the Department of English. The second set of digits (220) following the colon, indicates exactly which course in the Department of English is being specified. The course number also indicates the level at which the course is being taught and the point at which the student is ready to take the course.

An explanation of the course numbering system follows:

100-199 First-year-level courses
200-299 Second-year-level courses
300-399 Third-year-level courses
400-499 Fourth-year-level courses
500-699 Master's-level courses
600-799 J.D.-level courses
700-899 Doctoral-level courses

When approved 400-level undergraduate courses are taken for graduate credit, they are designated as 500-level courses. A student must apply for and be admitted to the Graduate School to receive graduate credit.

NOTE: Courses listed each term contain an additional three-digit number indicating the specific section(s) offered.
