Courses Descriptions

Courses are listed with the following format:

ART 260 Introduction to Painting 3 cr. (2+4P)

The prefix of the course—ART—indicates the subject or department (in this case Art). The first digit in the course number of ART 260 is 2, which indicates that the course is a sophomore-level course. The next two digits (60) indicate the course sequence. The 3 cr. indicates that the course is a 3-credit course. The (2+4P) means that the class meets for two hours per week for recitation or lecture and also requires 4 hours per week of "practice" (laboratory, field work, or other activities).

Course numbers indicate the class rank:

  • 100–199 are Freshman-level courses
  • 200–299 are Sophomore-level courses

The letter N is added as a suffix to the course number when the course credits are not applicable to the baccalaureate and specified associate degrees.

The letter “G” is added as a suffix to the course number when the course meets General Education common core requirements for transfer to other New Mexico institutions of higher education, as established by the New Mexico Higher Education Department. (Note that some other courses without a “G” also meet transfer requirements.)
