Courses of Instruction

THIS SECTION lists and describes all undergraduate and graduate courses taught by the departments of the University. The courses are presented by subjects, arranged alphabetically. The subject name (the heading in large type) is followed by the departmental symbol in parentheses. Below the subject appears a list of the departmental faculty.

The subject name (symbol) together with the course number constitutes the official designation for the course for purposes of registration and official records. The specific course title appears following the course number. The figures in parentheses denote the number of quarter hours of credit for the course. Following the credit hours are listed lecture and laboratory clock hours, if applicable. If none are listed, the course consists of lecture hours equal in number to course credit. Next appear the prerequisites (required courses to be taken prior to) and corequisites (required courses to be taken simultaneously with), if applicable.

With the implementation of a new student information computer system, Auburn University now employs a new method for identifying courses by four-letter departmental symbols and four-digit course numbers. The numbering system will carry over after the semester transition goes into effect. Courses were previously identified by a three-digit code. Numbers used as course identifiers will remain the same in this bulletin ­ with the exception of the zero at the front. Also, departmental symbols formerly ranged from one to three letters. Now all departmental symbols are four letters. A list of the new symbols appears below. An example would be: EH 110 (English 110) is now listed as ENGL 0110. Listings for other course numbers would follow this same pattern.

Courses are numbered according to the following system:

0101-0199 Courses primarily for freshmen.

0201-0299 Courses primarily for sophomores.

0301-0399 Courses primarily for juniors.

0401-0499 Courses primarily for seniors. Not open to graduate students.

0501-0599 Courses for advanced undergraduate and graduate students; and for fifth year students in professional curricula. Junior Standing Required For Enrollment At This Level.

0601-0799 Courses for graduate students.
