Course Descriptions

In this section of the catalog, all courses taught at Arkansas Tech University are listed alphabetically by subject area. Courses fulfilling subject matter requirements in more than one area are cross-listed; e.g., the listing POLS (HIST) 4043 is offered for three semester hours of credit in either political science or history. For departmental write-ups and detailed curricula of programs of study, see the appropriate division of the preceding section.

Course numbers are to be interpreted as follows:

  • First digit refers to the level of the course: 1-freshman, 2-sophomore, 3-junior, 4-senior; 0-designates a course that cannot be used to satisfy general education requirements nor provide credit toward any degree.
  • Middle two digits merely differentiate the course from others and have no meaning for the student.
  • Last digit refers to the number of "hours of credit" allowed for the course. Typically an "hour of credit" requires one hour of classroom work per week for the duration of a semester.
