Course Descriptions

All course offerings are graduate level with the exception of the 300-400 series.

Resident courses are worth three credits unless stated otherwise in the description.

Each course is designated by a letter-number combination (e.g. BNT 533). The letters denote the area of study. When applicable, a fourth letter will be added to the prefix to delineate: "E"—extension class; "I"—distance learning; "M"—resident module class.

Cross-listed courses allow the student to select the prefix applicable to the degree pursued.

The course numbers denote the following:

  • 300 and 400 series—preparatory courses, no graduate credit granted.
  • 500 series—normally a first-year graduate course.
  • 600 and 700 series—normally a second or third year graduate course.
  • 800 series—master's level and directed research studies
  • 900 series—doctoral studies
