Course Descriptions


As you read through the course descriptions, notice that each entry contains the course prefix and number, course title, a brief description of the course, prerequisite information, credit hour value, number of lecture and laboratory hours per week scheduled in a traditional 17-week semester, and the Program Classification System (PCS) code, described below. Note that some courses are assigned an IAI code. A description of the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI) is also presented.

An official course syllabus for credit courses is available upon request.

Program Classification System (PCS) Coding

PCS codes indicate the degree or certificate for which courses will be accepted.

(PCS 1.1) Baccalaureate/Transfer Courses
  These are academic courses equivalent to lower-division baccalaureate study and are generally articulated for transfer to four-year universities.
   
(PCS 1.2) Occupational/Technical Courses
  These are technical and applied courses designed to meet the requirements for an occupational degree or certificate program. Although these courses are not generally designed for transfer, some may be articulated with universities and used to meet lower-division baccalaureate requirements.
   
(PCS 1.3) Community Education Courses
   These are non-credit courses.
   
(PCS 1.4) Remedial/Developmental Courses
   These are preparatory or developmental educational courses designed to develop basic skills in reading, writing, speaking, and mathematics of high school graduates or persons achieving the equivalency of a high school diploma. Course credit does not count toward the completion of the associate transfer degrees.
   
(PCS 1.6) Vocational Skills
   These are short-term vocational skills training or upgrading courses that are designed to be used toward the completion of a vocational skills credential. Vocational skills courses may be used toward occupational/career degree or certificate if the college determines that the content of the course meets the objectives required.
   
(PCS 1.7) Adult Basic Education
   These are courses designed to provide basic skills training up to the eighth grade equivalency level for non-high school graduates.
   
(PCS 1.8) Adult Secondary Education
  These are courses designed to provide basic skills training for the secondary equivalency level for non-high school graduates.
   
(PCS 1.9) English As A Second Language
   These are courses that include instruction in English for those students whose native language is not English. Courses are designed to include various levels of competencies based on proficiency and purpose.

 

Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI) Coding

Lewis and Clark is a participant in the major statewide initiative to facilitate transfer of students among Illinois colleges and universities. This major effort among public, private, two-year, four-year, associate and baccalaureate degree granting institutions is called the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI).  See www.itransfer.org for more information.

The IAI agreement is designed to make transferring to any participating school as smooth as possible. When making transfer plans, a student must always seek the advice of an academic advisor in the Enrollment Center and at the school she/he plans to attend.

Articulation is the process of transferring courses from one school to another and the way the classes will be used at the receiving school. The IAI General Education Core Curriculum is designed specifically for transfer students. Transferring students should complete the IAI General Education Core Curriculum before transferring in order to be guaranteed full general education credit. When the full core is not completed before transfer, each college or university decides how to apply each individual course.

L&C’s General Education Core Curriculum, approved by the IAI, requires a total of 12 courses (37 semester credit hours). There are five fields or categories within the General Education Core Curriculum: Communication, Mathematics, Physical and Life Sciences, Humanities and Fine Arts, Social and Behavioral Sciences. This curriculum became effective at L&C and statewide in the summer of 1998. The application of credit earned prior to the summer of 1998 is an individual college’s decision.

IAI codes for specific L&C courses that have been accepted by the IAI are listed in parentheses following the course title. For example, ENGL 131 First Year English I (IAI: C1 900). C1 900 refers to the IAI General Education Communications Writing Course Sequence I. This code is a common code used by participating institutions to refer to courses very similar to ENGL 131.

Coding description:

C = Communication includes specific English and speech courses

M = Mathematics includes specific math courses

P = Physical Sciences includes specific chemistry, physical sciences, and physics  courses

L = Life Sciences includes specific biology  courses

H = Humanities includes specific foreign language, humanities, literature, and philosophy courses

F = Fine Arts includes specific art, drama, and music  courses

HF = Interdisciplinary includes specific humanities  courses

S = Social and Behavioral Sciences includes specific anthropology, economics, geography, history, political science, psychology, and sociology  courses
