Not all departmental prefixes represent fields in which a degree is offered; some represent only courses.

Courses numbered 500-599 are open to graduate students; however, a senior student who has a B average may take two graduate courses, not exceeding six credits, either for graduate credit or for completion of requirements for the bachelor’s degree. In this case the chair of the department concerned must notify the registrar’s office.

Note Concerning Course Schedules

Most course descriptions indicate the semester in which each course is usually offered, but this information is subject to change and many courses are not taught every year. The registrar’s office distributes a detailed schedule of courses offered at the beginning of each semester which contains accurate information on which courses are offered, at what time, and by whom they are taught.

For long-term planning, students should consult their advisers and/or individual departments for help in designing their programs of study. Students coming from the United States, especially year-abroad students, should contact the university’s office in New York for current information about specific course offerings.
