Course Descriptions


It should be noted that due to the nature of Southern, no listing of course descriptions, such as the one found here, can remain complete for many weeks after being compiled. Southern attempts to offer courses in nearly any subject a reasonable number of people want to study provided a qualified instructor can be found. This list of courses is up-to-date as of the start of each Fall academic term. A schedule of the courses to be offered during any particular academic term, along with the times and day they will meet, will be distributed in advance of each academic term on Southern’s website. This course listing is provided for information purposes only and is not to be considered binding. Southern reserves the right to make changes in course content, course offerings and/or other areas concerning curriculum.

Some courses have specifically designated prerequisite and/or co-requisite courses. If a course has a prerequisite, which means the work in that course requires the knowledge or skill gained in another course, and, therefore, students are not allowed to enroll in the advanced course until they have completed a prerequisite course or courses. If a course has a co-requisite, which means successful work in that course requires the skill and knowledge to be attained at the same time in another course, and, therefore, students are not allowed to enroll in certain courses unless they also enroll in co-requisites during the same academic term.

Courses numbered 275 are reserved for special topics to be offered in a particular area, e.g., AC 275 , EN 275 , etc. A 275 course may be repeated for additional credit providing the topic is not repeated.
