How to Read Course Numbers
- The three numbers under each course title indicate (left to right): class hours per week, laboratory or required student practice time (Music, Foreign Language, English) hours per week and credit hours per semester, respectively.*
- The four numbers under each course title in Allied Health curricula as well as Music courses indicate (left to right): class hours per week, laboratory hours per week, clinical hours per week or required student practice time, and credit hours per semester, respectively.
- The one-hour lab indicated for all foreign language courses is a period in which students are required to complete listening and speaking exercises using various technologies as instructed by faculty.
- A two-semester course is designated by a hyphenated number: for example, 101-102. The first half of such a course is prerequisite to the second half. Credit is usually given if only the first half of the course is completed unless otherwise stated in the course description.
- All other courses are one semester in length.
- Please check course listings, published each semester, to determine if and when a specific course may be offered.
* In some courses that are followed by three numbers, the second number refers not to “laboratory hours per week” but to hours per week of an internship, partial employment, practicum or other off-campus, program-related activity. (The specific activity is usually referred to in the course description.)
