Course Descriptions
The course descriptions which follow (alphabetically by discipline) are intended to give the student a general idea of content, though faculty may modify content when necessary to keep up with changes in the discipline or to meet the changing needs of the student.

When a course is offered on a regular cycle, the semesters in which it is scheduled to be offered are indicated as part of the course description; however, course cycles are subject to change as needs vary. Courses in which no cycle is indicated are offered as demand warrants.

The University reserves the right to change and update its curricula by making necessary revisions in the programs and courses listed in this bulletin and in its published class schedules.

Common Course Numbering
Our Lady of the Lake University is a participant in the Texas Common Course Numbering (TCCN) System. This system aids in the transfer of lower-division academic courses among colleges and universities in Texas. Common Courses are identified by a common TCCN designation, composed of a discipline identifier and a course number. Equivalent TCCN designations are listed with all relevant Our Lady of the Lake University course listings sections of this catalog. These courses are listed two ways: if course has an equivalent TCCN number different from the OLLU number, this is indicated by the designation TCCN followed by the TCCN discipline and number in brackets; if course is the same as the TCCN, this is indicated by the designation TCCN in brackets without additional identifying information.
