Return to Areas of Study Return to: Areas of Study

Courses marked with an asterisk (*) are half courses, and courses marked with a pound (#) sign are quarter courses or modules. Courses marked with a plus sign (+) may differ in content from year to year and may be taken more than once. Not all courses listed are offered in a given year-please consult the department for current offerings.

The following 600-level courses, which are available to senior undergraduate students, may also be offered for graduate credit. Graduate students in 600-level courses will be required to complete extra work in addition to that required of undergraduate students in the corresponding 400-level course (e.g., lab assignment, extra questions on assignments), the nature of which will depend on the instructor.

The following 700-level courses are offered for graduate credit.


Among these, *729, *730, *739, *740, *746, and *750 are offered every year. Many courses are offered on a 2- or 3-year rotation. Other courses may be offered according to demand.
