Topics Course: An organization of subject matter and related learning experiences composed of identifiable subdivisions of topics. Each topic is of sufficient significance to be treated separately as a unit of instruction for an entire semester or term. The content of the course varies by semester. Workshop: Intensive and applied work on special problems in one or more subject areas. Workshop opportunities are provided on special problems not covered in any regular University courses. Workshops are designated by the num- bers 193, 293, 393, 429, and 493. COURSE INFORMATION The University operates on the semester plan. The credit value of all courses is stated in terms of semester hours. Ordinarily, a semester hour is assigned for a 50-minute class meeting per week for the semester; therefore, a course valued at three semester hours generally meets three periods weekly. In laboratory courses, at least two 50- minute periods per week are ordinarily required for each semester hour of credit. Course Availability: Some courses listed in the Undergraduate Catalog may not be available each year. Students should consult the iCampus Portal at for class availability. Questions concerning scheduling of courses should be referred to the department chairperson or school director. COURSE NUMBERING Each course bears a distinguishing number for identification and indication of its academic level. The numbering system is as follows: 100-199 Lower-division undergraduate courses, primarily for freshmen and sophomores. 200-299 Upper-division undergraduate courses, primarily for juniors and seniors. A student nor- mally should have completed at least 45 semester hours before enrolling in a course at this level. 300-399 Advanced undergraduate courses. Open to juniors, seniors, and sometimes graduate students. A student normally should have completed at least 75 semester hours before enrolling in a course at this level. 400-499 Graduate courses. See the Graduate Catalog . Courses at this level are for graduate stu- dents. In exceptional instances, a senior may receive permission to enroll for undergraduate credit in a course at this level. Seniors may be per- mitted to begin graduate work if they meet the con- ditions of the Senior in Good Standing Policy as described in the Graduate Catalog . 500-599 Courses limited to advanced graduate or doctoral students. COURSE DESCRIPTIONS The following information is given for each course: course number (three or five digits preced- ing the title); course title; credit value in semester hours; and F for fall and S for spring to indicate the semester for which a course is planned as an offering during the current academic year. The University, however, may cancel or add scheduled course offerings after publication of this Undergraduate Catalog depending upon the ade- quacy of enrollment and availability of faculty.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
