Plans of study, course descriptions, and the identification of instructors apply to the academic year 2018-2019, unless otherwise noted, and reflect official faculty action through February, 2018.

The University reserves the right to change programs of study, academic requirements, assignment of lecturers, or the announced calendar. The courses listed in this bulletin are not necessarily taught every year; their availability is a function of both staffing constraints and student demand. While no guarantees about future scheduling can be made, students are encouraged to alert their advisers and department heads to their needs and desires as soon as they can be foreseen. For an exact list of courses offered in each particular semester and summer, students should consult the course schedules issued by the Office of the University Registrar during the preceding term. Course descriptions in this bulletin are brief summaries. Students are encouraged to visit departmental and program websites for more detailed information.
