2020-2021 Academic Catalog (August 2020 - July 2021) [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Academics - Colleges and Departments

The Academic Programs of the University are under the direction of three colleges, the departments in those colleges, and the graduate school. Following introductory comments, the courses offered, by each department, are listed, generally, in numerical sequence. Usually, the 100 and 200 numbered courses are lower division (freshman and sophomore) introductory courses. The courses numbered 300 and 400 are upper division (junior and senior) advanced courses. Graduate courses are listed in the graduate section.

Normally, students should progress from lower to upper division work, particularly in their major area of study. Course descriptions represent a brief explanation of the content and are not intended to be all-inclusive statements of course objectives.

Courses, competencies, or approvals may be required before a student may enroll in a course. Students must be aware of stated course prerequisites.

The semester hour credit value that may be earned by successfully completing a course is listed in parenthesis following the course title. Some academic departments may provide an optional symbol indicating a term when the course is regularly offered. Courses offered in the Fall Semester are indicated by (F). Courses offered in the Spring Semester are indicated by (S). On occasion, courses are offered every other year, in which case, the semester indicator is followed by the appropriate odd or even year indication.

Concord University reserves the right to modify the frequency of course offerings because of insufficient enrollment, inability to staff the course, or other compelling reasons.
