OTHER COURSE-NUMBER DESIGNATIONS

Letter symbols appearing immediately after course numbers are to be interpreted as follows. Small-case letters “a-b” mean a two-semester sequence to be taken in order. When small-case letters are separated by a comma instead of a dash, these symbols indicate that even though the courses are closely related, they need not be taken in the a, b order if conditions make it more expedient to reverse the order.
