Course Description Details

Course Arrangement

The courses are listed numerically within an alphabetical arrangement of major subject matter areas.

Credits for some courses are transferable only with approval of the admitting institution.

Whenever possible, general education courses attempt to present material to reflect the multi-ethnic nature of American society.


Course Contact Hour

One course contact hour is a total of 60 minutes of student instruction in which the student is scheduled to come into contact with an instructor or with tutorial or laboratory equipment. The total contact hours for a course are calculated by summing the total instructional minutes for that course in the academic period and dividing by 60. The following non-traditional courses are excluded from this formula:

  1. Cooperative Education
  2. Clinical
  3. Practicums, Internships
  4. Independent Studies
