Courses are listed by subject area.
The subject abbreviation designates the department/subject area and subdiscipline within that area. The set of three numbers refers to the specific course within the subject area. For example, MUSC refers to the subject area, Music, and 143 refers to the specific course, Survey of American Jazz.
In any reference to a specific course, the full set of subject area and course numbers should always be used.
Course numbers 000-099 are courses that carry no units toward degree requirements. Courses numbered 100-299 are lower-division courses. Courses numbered 300-499 are upper-division courses which may be dual-listed as 500-699 for graduate unit. Courses at the 700 level are open only to graduate students.
A course number may occasionally have a letter suffix to designate that it is open only to students with a specific educational background preparation.
The letter "G" appearing after the course title identifies the course as one that can be used in satisfying the University General Education requirements. The second letter following the "G" identifies the category within General Education to which the course applies. Proficiency and U.S. Racial/Ethnic Diversity courses are identified with the appropriate designation after the course title.
These courses are available on a selected basis through most of the academic departments. The course descriptions are common to all departments. However, the prerequisites and the number of units permitted in certain programs may differ. Note the limitation of units for degree programs identified in the Catalog.
