Course Descriptions


Course Abbreviations

Elizabeth City State University has established a set of standardized abbreviations for its departments and courses. These abbreviations should be used in making out class schedule forms and at all times when referring to specific course offerings.

System of Course Numbers

Each course is defined by a Course Abbreviation and a number. The number of each course has three digits. The first digit indicates the classification level. The second and the third digit distinguish the course from other courses in the classification. The parentheses following the course name represent the number of credits being given for the course and the term(s) when it is offered. Courses marked with an asterisk (*) are required courses.

Example:

ART (Art) 130 (First Level Classification): Art Appreciation (Title of Course) (2) (Credits) (F; S; SS) (Course offered Fall , Spring, Summer).

Prerequisite Courses — Courses beyond the freshman year usually have “prerequisites.” This means that certain courses must be taken before the student can register for the advanced course. The prerequisite may also require “consent of the department chair.” The student must secure the permission from the above person(s) before he or she registers for the advanced course. “Consent of the department chair” is usually required for courses in which there is limited laboratory space and/or equipment, or in which specific skills and aptitudes are required.

Co-requisite Courses — This means that certain courses must be taken at the same time.

Each student is advised to obtain a copy of the Handbook from his or her major department. The handbook will provide information about the courses students must take and the entrance and exit requirements for them.
