Course Prefix Guide

Many program descriptions in this catalog refer to courses offered by other departments using a course abbreviation called a prefix.  In addition, some course prefixes do not use the logical initials of the courses to which they refer (e.g., ABC is used to indicate instrumental music courses).  To assist in locating the department or program which uses each prefix, the following guide to course prefixes is provided.
