Course Numbering

The University of Iowa has moved to a new course numbering system. Course numbers consist of an alphabetical prefix (up to four letters) showing the college, department, or program that administers the course, followed by a colon and a four-digit numerical suffix for the individual course. For example, SOC:2810 identifies the course numbered 2810 in the Department of Sociology (SOC), titled Social Inequality.

Course suffix numbers 0000-0999 designate prelower-level courses; numbers 1000-2999 designate lower-level undergraduate courses; numbers 3000-4999 designate courses for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students (except in the College of Engineering, where numbers 3000-5999 designate courses for undergraduate and graduate students); numbers 5000-7999 designate graduate-level courses; and numbers 8000-9999 designate professional-level courses.

In this edition of the Catalog, the new course numbers are followed by the legacy (old) course numbers in parentheses. The sociology course example listed above appears as SOC:2810 (034:066) Social Inequality.
