2012-2013 General Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Courses of Instruction


The following is a listing of all courses of instruction offered by departments at LSU. This listing was up-to-date and as correct as possible at the time of publication of this catalog.

Since this catalog was prepared well in advance of its effective date, some courses may have been added, others may have been dropped, and/or changes in content may have been made.

The following are important notes concerning courses:

  • General education courses are designated by stars (★) placed before the course numbers.
  • Class minima are specified in PS-37, Minimum Class Size:
  ≪ Below 4000 15  
  ≪ Between 4000-4999 10  
  ≪ 5000 and above 5  
  • No credit is given for a course unless the student has been duly registered in that course.
  • The amount of credit given for the satisfactory completion of a course is based on the number of lectures each week for one semester:
  one credit represents at least one hour of lecture a week for one semester;  
  two hours of laboratory (in some cases, three) are the equivalent of one hour of lecture.  
  • When a course consists entirely or partly of laboratory, that fact is stated in the description. When not otherwise specified, the course consists entirely of lectures.
  • The number of credit hours that a course carries per semester is listed in parentheses following the course title. If the number listed is variable, i.e., (2-4), the amount of credit that the student is to receive must be stated at the time of registration.
  • Indication of variable credit does not mean that a course may be repeated for credit. If a course can be repeated for credit, that information is included in the course description.
  • Listing of a course does not necessarily mean that it will be offered every year.
  • The phrases also offered as… , see…, or same as…, which appear in some course descriptions, refer to honors courses or to cross-listed courses that are available through more than one department. In each of these instances, only one of the courses may be taken for credit.

Course Numbering System

An explanation of the first digit of the four-digit course numbering system follows. The meaning of the second, third, and fourth digits varies by department. See “Year Classification of Students ” in the “Undergraduate Degree Requirements and Regulations” section of this catalog for an explanation of the criteria for classification as a freshman, sophomore, etc.

1000-1999 • For undergraduate students, primarily freshmen; for undergraduate credit only. Ordinarily open to all students; in some instances upper-division students may not take these courses for degree credit.

2000-2999 • For undergraduate students, sophomore level or above; for undergraduate credit only.

3000-3999 • For advanced undergraduate students, junior- and senior-level; for undergraduate credit only. These courses constitute the advanced portion of an undergraduate program leading to the bachelor’s degree. A student with fewer than 60 hours of credit may enroll in 3000 level courses if they meet the enrollment requirements of the college whose departments offer the courses.

4000-4999 • For advanced undergraduate students (who have completed a minimum of 60 semester hours) and students in graduate and professional schools and colleges; for undergraduate or graduate credit. Undergraduates with 30 or more semester hours who are making timely progress toward a degree may be admitted to 4000 level courses. Such students must have a 3.50 GPA or higher, the appropriate prerequisites, consent of the instructor, and permission of the dean of the student’s undergraduate college.

5000-5999 • For students in post-baccalaureate professional programs (architecture, law, and veterinary medicine). A student in the Graduate School may take these courses for credit with approval of the student’s major department.

6000-6999 • Exclusively for teachers at the elementary, secondary, and junior college levels.

7000-7999 • For students in the Graduate School; for graduate credit only except as follows. Undergraduates with 75 or more semester hours who are making timely progress toward a degree may be admitted to 7000 level courses. Such students must have a 3.50 or higher GPA, the appropriate prerequisites, consent of the instructor, and permission of the dean of the student’s undergraduate college. Credit so earned will apply only toward undergraduate degree requirements, except for students enrolled in an accelerated master’s degree program.

8000-8999 • Research courses exclusively for graduate students, primarily for students working toward the master’s degree; for graduate credit only. The number 8000 designates thesis research.

9000-9999 • Research courses exclusively for graduate students, primarily for advanced graduate students working toward the doctoral degree; for graduate credit only. The number 9000 designates dissertation research.
