Department and Course Codes

The department or program and course subject codes for all units of the University are arranged in the single alphabetical list that appears below. The subject course code is the registrar’s official symbol for the subject and is used in records, reports, schedules, transcripts, and other references to a department, program, or course.

Numbering indicates the level of the material covered in courses:

100 – 199 Introductory courses

Seniors should exercise due consideration before taking 100-level courses, since elementary courses generally appear inappropriate on a senior’s transcript.

200 – 299 Lower-division courses
300 – 399 Upper-division courses open to undergraduate students
400 – 499 Advanced courses open to both undergraduate and graduate students
500 – 599 Graduate courses open only to graduate students and listed in the Graduate Studies Bulletin

When courses are cross-listed by more than one department or program, the full description of the course is found under both the department/program administering the course and the other department/program. At the time of the registration, students who register for a cross-listed course must choose the department/program in which they desire credit for the course.

Hyphenated numbers – for example, 153-154 – are attached to courses that run for two semesters and indicate that the first course is prerequisite for the second course. Double numbers with a comma between them – for example, 161, 163 – are attached to courses that run for two semesters but may be taken in any sequence.

A number in parentheses following a course number or title refers to the number of the same course as it appeared in previous issues of the Undergraduate Bulletin. If the number is preceded by a departmental symbol, it indicates a cross-listed course.
