Course Descriptions

Not all of the courses listed herein are offered every semester. Some courses may be offered during the fall or spring semesters, summer sessions and short sessions and some on alternating yearly cycles. For a listing of current course offerings, the Registrar’s Office publishes a schedule of classes prior to the beginning of each semester.

The University encourages students to plan the course program for their degrees during their freshman and sophomore years. Course planning should be done with the help of a faculty advisor. Prerequisite study must be successfully completed before the student enters certain courses. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that he/she has successfully completed the prerequisite courses prior to studying on the higher level. The following descriptions contain the necessary information on prerequisites. Note: The University reserves the right to cancel or reschedule courses if necessary.
