Courses in this catalog are listed first by the discipline code, three letters that
indicate the academic discipline (HST for history, for example), followed by three
digits. The first of these digits refers to the level of the course; the next two
indicate the specific course. Thus ENL 165 is an English course designed for the lower-division
student, and the 65 indicates the specific course offering, which is International
Short Story. These numbers are followed by the actual course title, and this in turn
is followed by letters within parentheses that tell whether the course is liberal
arts (A) or professional (B) in nature, and whether it may be used to fulfill one
or more of the General Education requirements. A legend for the letters and numbers
used in course listings is given below. An example of a course listing follows:
