Course Description/Contact Hours

The course information contains the description, the discipline code (two or four digits), the course number, the course title and the course weight. The credit weight may be preceded, if deemed appropriate, by an abbreviation (consult Abbreviations in the Glossary) indicating the term or session in which the course is normally taught. The course information line is followed by a brief description of the content of the course (more information is available from the department) and may end with a statement that the course is cross-listed in another academic discipline. The description is followed, where applicable, by a prerequisite, co-requisite,  credit exclusion statement and/or notes.

Contact Hours: Any deviation from the normal number of three contact hours per week for 12 weeks, or 36 lecture hours per term, for a course, will be noted at the end of the course description.
