[Courses and 
Units of Instruction]

Courses in the First-Year Seminar Program are open only to first-year students. Unless otherwise noted, departmental courses numbered in the 100s are introductory and open to first-year students. Courses numbered in the 200s are designed for sophomores, juniors, and seniors; where indicated, they are open to first-year students; 300-level courses are designed for juniors and seniors; 400-level courses represent specialized work for senior majors in the departments. Courses bearing two hyphenated numbers, such as Physics 107-108, run through two semesters; normally the second semester is open only to those who have successfully completed the first. All courses of instruction are of equal credit value.

Short Term units are numbered according to the following codes: s10-s29 have no prerequisites, although they may require the permission of the instructor; s30-s39 have prerequisites but are not designed primarily for majors; s40-s49 are designed primarily for majors; and s50 is the designation for individual research.

An exact list of course offerings, schedules, and instructors for the next semester or Short Term can be found in the Course Book, available during the preregistration period held in the preceding semester. The College reserves the right to cancel courses due to changes in teaching personnel, under-enrollment, or other unforeseen circumstances.
