Course Numbering System

500-599 Courses that carry graduate credit only in a major field different from that of the department offering the course. Most such courses will be alternate designations of courses normally numbered 300-499.
600-699 Courses that carry graduate credit in any major field and have alternate designations in which the first digit is a 3 or 4 when taken for undergraduate credit.
700-799 Courses intended for graduate credit only.


Policy on Dual-Listed Courses

Students who wish to take "dual listed" (e.g., PHY 420/620) courses for graduate credit (PHY 620-level) are required to perform alternate work that reflects both quantitative and qualitative advances over the undergraduate requirements (PHY 420-level), such as additional scholarly readings, more rigorous research, and/or more comprehensive examinations. The alternate work required for graduate credit will be stated in the syllabi for all "dual listed" courses.

1. When additional readings are assigned, they should involve students with scholarly literature related to the subject of the course.

2. When graduate research is assigned, it should adhere to rigorous methodological strategies, emphasize primary source material where appropriate, and conform to accepted standards of scholarly style, organization, and content.

3. Graduate examinations may require additional or different questions and should require abstract thinking and theoretical assimilation of the course material.

The course descriptions listed in this catalog represent the range of graduate courses offered at Wright State by the Colleges of Business and Administration, Education and Human Services, Engineering and Computer Science, Liberal Arts, and Science and Mathematics; the School of Professional Psychology; the Wright State University-Miami Valley College of Nursing and Health; and other graduate programs.
