Curriculum

Course Organization

For convenience of reference the courses are listed alphabetically by discipline. When applicable, the current department head and/or program director name is included with each discipline listing. Information on general education requirements can be found on the related legend and detailed description pages.

Course Numbers

Courses numbered 100 and 200 are lower division courses, normally intended for first-year students and sophomores; those numbered 300 and 400 are upper division courses, normally intended for juniors and seniors. The college reserves the right to change course offerings as it deems necessary.

Special Topics

Periodically, topics not included in the regular curriculum will be offered. Subjects will generally reflect a narrow focus and specific interests of the faculty. Lower division special topics will carry the number 139 and 239 while upper division offerings will be numbered 339 and 439. If a special topics course is to be offered a third time, it must be approved for regular listing in the catalog.

Departments are grouped into three divisions to facilitate integration of the various disciplines into a liberal arts curriculum, to provide a forum for faculty discussion of common programs and interests, and to assist in the planning of interdisciplinary academic programs.
