UIC Course Descriptions - Spring 2015

The printed versions of the undergraduate and graduate catalogs are published every two years. The inventory of courses offered by UIC is constantly changing, and the following represents the most recent descriptions of courses offered. Be aware of the term for which the courses have been updated, which appears underneath the subject title inside each file. Because the updates are term-specific, the information in these files reflect the status of courses for the term indicated. The information about a course that is listed in the Schedule of Classes for a specific term is considered most accurate.

In some courses, enrollment is restricted or priority is given to students whose college or curriculum requires that course. Please see the Schedule of Classes for more information.

This listing is for informational purposes only and does not constitute a contract. Every attempt is made to provide the most current and correct information. Courses listed here are subject to change without advance notice. Courses are not necessarily offered every term or year. Individual departments or units should be consulted for information regarding frequency of course offerings.
