Courses of Instruction

Courses offered during the academic year covered by this catalog will be selected principally from those courses described on the following pages. Bossier Parish Community College reserves the right, however, to make revisions in these offerings.

Course Description Key

The course prefix is the first set of letters (see the prefix codes below) at the beginning of each course section.

The course number is shown to the left of the title.

The significance of the numbering system is as follows:

000-099 Developmental courses for no degree credit
100-199 Freshmen level courses
200-299 Sophomore level courses

Contact and credit hours of each course are shown in parentheses immediately following the course title. The first figure indicates the total semester hours credit awarded to students for satisfactory completion of the course; the second number indicates the number of contact hours per week in lecture; the third number represents the number of contact hours per week in laboratory.

For example: (3, 3, 0)

3 semester hour credits

3 hours lecture per week

0 hours lab per week

Some courses have prerequisites or corequisites listed. A prerequisite must be taken prior to entering a course; a corequisite must be taken prior to, or concurrently with, the course. For clarification on any prerequisites or corequisites, students should contact the division chairs. Students must make a "C" or higher in all prerequisite courses.
