Courses are designated by a subject prefix and number along with a descriptive title. The first digit in the number indicates the academic level of the course. First digits of 1, 2, 3, or 4 indicate that the course is primarily designed for the freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior year, respectively. A number of 5 or above designates a graduate course. The second digit indicates the semester-hour credit of the course. The remaining digits are the distinguishing numbers of the particular course. Thus, MATH 1350 is a freshman course carrying 3 semester hours of credit. Remedial courses begin with "0" (MATH 0301, etc.).
Courses are listed in the following section of the catalog under the name of the college and department in which they are taught. The courses are arranged numerically.
In the departmental course lists, certain information is placed in parentheses following the course title. The first figure in the parentheses indicates the semester-hour credit of the course; the second figure shows the number of lecture hours per week attended by a student enrolled in the course; and the third figure indicates the number of hours per week during which the student is in a laboratory, practice session, or other activity related to the course. For example, (3:1:4) following the listing of GEOG 3300, Introduction to Mapping, means that the course carries 3 semester hours' credit, that 1 hour per week is spent in lecture section, and that 4 hours per week are spent in the laboratory. Where only one figure appears in the parentheses, the course value in semester hours is indicated.
Several courses are identified by the Texas Common Course Numbering System to facilitate transfer between Texas colleges and universities. These courses are identified by the Texas Common Course Number in brackets following the course description.
