Courses listed in this catalog are of two types.
- Courses in the 5800 series are upper-division undergraduate courses in which graduate students may enroll for graduate credit with the approval of an advisor.
- Courses in the 6900- and above series are graduate-level courses normally open only to graduate students but which undergraduates may elect under conditions outlined in Graduate Courses for Undergraduates. Courses in the 8100 series are doctoral-level courses.
- The abbreviation s.h. at the end of a course description stands for “semester hours of credit.” Thus, credit for a three-hour, two-semester course is indicated by the notation 3+3 s.h., meaning three semester hours of credit each semester.
- Prereq. stands for “prerequisite.”
- Comma. Ordinarily, a comma between numbers (e.g., 6907, 6908) indicates that the course extends throughout the year, but that credit toward graduation is given for each course individually.
- En dash. An en dash between numbers (e.g., 6907–6908) indicates that credit is not given toward graduation for the work of the first semester until the work of the second semester is completed, except when special permission is granted by the chair of the department in which the course is given. The first semester of such a course is prerequisite to the second.
