Courses are listed alphabetically by field. Courses in the College Preparatory Program have numbers below 99. Credit for these courses cannot be used to meet degree requirements, but are prerequisites for degree courses when the student does not meet college entrance standards or when the student has demonstrated the need for preparatory coursework through placement testing at USM. A hyphen separating two-course numbers (for example 101-102) indicates that the course sequence must be taken in the order given. A comma separating course numbers (for example 101, 102) indicates that the courses may be taken independently of one another in any order. Not all courses are offered every semester.
