Curriculum Course Descriptions


Curriculum courses are designated by a three-letter prefix followed by three numbers that are sometimes followed by a letter(s) (i.e., ENG 111, COS 114AB, HEA 110). The prefix indicates the
subject area, such as ENG (English) HEA (health) BIO (biology), or PED (physical education). The letter after the course number provides various kinds of information, such as whether a science course is a lecture or lab, whether a music course is in the area of piano or voice, and whether a course is divided into sub-sections (e.g., AB, BB). Numbers that begin with zero denote
developmental courses.

A series of numbers with parentheses specifies course hours followed by the credit hours. For traditional face-to-face classes, the first number is the number of hours of lecture or discussion in the classroom per week. The second number is the number of hours spent per week in the laboratory, shop, or studio. Some courses list three numbers inside the parenthesis; the third number is the number of hours spent per week in clinical or work experience. The fourth number, after the parentheses, indicates the credit hours awarded for the course.

Some course descriptions list a prerequisite and/or a corequisite course for courses. A prerequisite course is one that must be taken prior to another course. A corequisite course is one that
must be taken at the same time as another course or prior to the course to be taken. An asterisk (*) following a course title indicates the course is considered transferable under the CAA and ICAA to four-year institutions (see pp. 75-82). Two asterisks (**) following a course title indicates the course is universally transferable to all UNC institutions as part of the Universal General Education Transfer Component (UGETC). Earning a C or better grade in a UGETC course, guarantees the transferability of that specific course, regardless of whether or not the student completes the transfer degree. Courses in this listing are arranged by course prefix, with the prefixes occurring alphabetically and numerically within each prefix category (i.e., PED 110, PED 111,…PHI 215, PHI 240,…PHY 151). In some cases, the college may split a course into segments to facilitate scheduling and/or to maximize enrollment capacity. All parts of these split courses must be completed in the offered groupings to receive credit for the whole course. If a course group is not completed as offered the entire group must be retaken in the future to receive the whole course credit. Split courses offered with simultaneously scheduled parts are identified by C and L suffixes on the parts. Split courses offered with sequentially scheduled parts are identified by AB and BB suffixes if the course is split in two parts or AC, BC, and CC suffixes if the course is split into three parts.
