Courses of Instruction
Courses that are offered as part of the certificate program are open only to men. All other courses are open to all students, men and women, but classes are generally held separately. Dual program course are generally co-ed. The separation of classes may lead to a course being offered only to one gender in a particular semester owing to lack of registration of the other gender.
Courses are generally coded as follows: The first digit indicates the level of the course.
100 Introductory courses
These courses are not necessarily freshman level -- but are introductory in the field of study.
200 Second level courses
These courses may or may not have prerequisites but assume previous work at college level.
300 Advanced courses
These courses are designed for the concentration requirement and for electives. These courses generally have prerequisites or require junior/senior standing. In certain circumstances, permission to take advanced courses may be also be granted by the Dean of Academic Administration. For example, students with demonstrated extensive Judaic backgrounds will be permitted to take advanced Judaic Studies courses as freshman or sophomores.
400 Advanced or senior level courses
These courses generally require independent project work. In certain circumstances permission to take advanced courses may also be granted by the Dean of Academic Administration. For example, students with demonstrated extensive Judaic backgrounds will be permitted to take advanced Judaic Studies courses as freshmen or sophomores.
Course numbers ending with the digit 1 are usually offered in the first semester (Fall); courses ending with the digit 2 are usually offered in the second semester (Winter); those ending with the digit 3 are usually offered in the thirds semester (Spring/Summer). Courses ending with the digits 0 or 5 are generally courses that are not assigned to a particular semester.
