This portion of the catalog provides information about the courses offered at Sinclair Community College. A brief description of each course is provided. For details regarding the additional information included with each course, see below.
Each section begins with a subject followed by a three letter prefix which identifies the subject area of the course. The number identifies the level. Courses that begin with a zero are developmental in nature. Credits earned in developmental courses will not apply to the overall program hours. Courses in the 1000 series are usually considered first-year courses, courses in the 2000 series are usually considered second-year courses, courses in the 3000 series are considered third-year courses, while courses in the 4000 series are considered fourth-year courses.
The number of semester credits for each course is indicated after the course title. Note that the number of credits for a course does not necessarily equal the number of hours that the course meets in one week. The actual number of hours per week varies by modality and will be reflected in the course schedule.
Prerequisites, if any, are listed at the end of each course description in italics. Prerequisites are established by each department to ensure that the student has an adequate and sufficient background to enroll in the course and achieve success in that course. If there are no prerequisites listed, none are required for the course.
Sometimes courses must be taken concurrently. If this is the case the courses are designated as co-requisites. For example, a biology lecture course and its associated lab course must be taken simultaneously. Lab information is usually noted. Co-requisites, if any, are listed at the end of the course description in italics.
An “R” indicates the course may be repeated for additional credit. These courses will be counted in the cumulative GPA each time the course is taken.
NOTE: Courses described in this catalog are those approved by Sinclair Community College at the time of publication. Inclusion of a course description does not obligate the College to offer the course in any given semester or academic year.
