1 Course Renumbering Training Spring 2007

2 MISSION STATEMENT The goal of the course renumbering project is to design and implement a standardized numbering system across all undergraduate and graduate courses in the University.

3 MAJOR GOALS OF COURSE RENUMBERING Transparency Consistency In Preparation for an ERP

4 THE NEW NUMBERS All courses will have four-digit numbers The first digit will designate the course level –Please note that “level” refers to the expectation that curricula lead students upward in competence and knowledge. “Level” does not mean that students will be universally restricted to taking courses in the sequence suggested by the numbers. For example, seniors will not be restricted from registering for 1000-level classes.

5 THE NEW NUMBERS UNDERGRADUATE Courses numbered 0xxx and 1xxx are LOWER LEVEL Courses numbered 0xxx and 1xxx are LOWER LEVEL--- 0xxx:Reserved for generic translation of transfer equivalents and other administrative uses. 1xxx:Courses appropriate for undergraduate students in their first year of study and will be subject to mid-term academic progress ratings ---Courses numbered 2xxx and above are UPPER LEVEL--- 2xxx:Courses appropriate for undergraduate students in their second year of study 3xxx:Courses appropriate for undergraduate students in their third year of study 4xxx:Courses appropriate for undergraduate students in their fourth year of study Courses numbered from 2000 – 4999 may be taken for graduate credit according to the current University practice governing courses numbered

6 THE NEW NUMBERS UNDERGRADUATE CONVENTIONS CORE Courses and How to Identify Them: No more prefixes (C, R, W, X, H) Writing intensive courses end in “96,” “97,” and “98” Honors courses have a “9” in the second digit (x9xx) and their titles include the word “Honors” Required Course Indicators (RCIs) remain in the Course Descriptions Catalog, and in OWLlink/ISIS on the C1 and C4 screens Search for Core courses on the renumbering website:

7 THE NEW NUMBERS UNDERGRADUATE CONVENTIONS (cont.) Sequential courses: courses that should be taken in a sequence should be numbered appropriately. For example, Intro to French I has been numbered Intro to French II has been numbered Linked courses: courses that should be taken concurrently should be numbered appropriately. For example, Intro to Chemistry I has been numbered 1021, and Intro to Chemistry Lab I has been numbered Please note that Schools/Colleges/Departments may have implemented conventions in addition to those required by the University.

8 THE NEW NUMBERS UNDERGRADUATE CONVENTIONS (cont.) In some cases the course number ending indicates the course focus xxx0 Special Topics –Regularly scheduled courses (not individualized instruction) offered with variable content, and repeatable for credit. xx81 Cooperative Assignment –Increasingly complex, experiential learning with supervision external to the University. Usually these courses include learning experiences over more than one semester—as part of a defined program. xx82 Independent Study –Explorative study or research initiated by an undergraduate student with faculty sponsorship and an approved Independent Study contract. xx83 Directed Reading/Study –Mentored reading/study between a faculty member and an undergraduate student. xx84 Performance –Concert performance, juried art exhibition or other performance taken as a requirement for the degree.

9 THE NEW NUMBERS UNDERGRADUATE CONVENTIONS (cont.) xx85 Internship/Externship –Pre-professional clinical or experiential traineeships contracted by the student’s department, including experiences with a clinical, research, or other special concentration in a specific area. Students must have faculty sponsorship and an approved Internship/Externship contract. xx86 Internship/Externship –Reserved for a continuation of an internship/externship experience, following xx85. xx87 Practicum –Programs that are traineeships contracted by the student’s department to meet the educational, geographic, and specific interests of the student. Settings generally have on-site clinical supervision. xx88 Student Teaching –Practical experiences in student teaching designed to support and lead to teacher certification. xx89 Field Study –On-site, observational study or data collection and analyses which deepen practical knowledge in the discipline. The purpose of Field Study is to integrate and apply academic theories to on-site experiences.

10 THE NEW NUMBERS UNDERGRADUATE CONVENTIONS (cont.) xx91 Directed Research –Mentored research between a faculty mentor and an undergraduate student. xx92 Reserved for future use xx93 Reserved for future use xx94 Reserved for future use xx95 Reserved for future use xx96 Writing-Intensive Courses xx97 Writing-Intensive Courses xx98 Writing-Intensive Courses xx99 Undergraduate Thesis –Sustained research, performance or artistic project resulting in a substantial, finished written report—or other product in a format appropriate to the project. Assumes faculty sponsorship and mentorship.

11 THE NEW NUMBERS GRADUATE 5xxx Courses primarily for graduate students; undergraduate students in their third or fourth year may enroll in such courses with permission. This range of courses will default to the graduate level. Courses designed specifically for dual-level enrollment. 8xxx Courses for graduate students. 9xxx Courses for graduate students. 6xxx and 7xxx courses are reserved for possible future use by the professional schools.

12 THE NEW NUMBERS GRADUATE CONVENTIONS xxx0 Special Topics –Regularly scheduled courses (not individualized instruction) offered with variable content, and repeatable for credit. 9x81 Co-operative Assignment –An experiential learning experience with supervision external to Temple University. 9x82 Independent Study –Explorative study or research initiated by a graduate student with faculty sponsorship and an approved Independent Study contract. 9x83 Directed Reading/Study –Mentored reading/study between a faculty member and a graduate student. 9x84 Performance –Concert performance, juried art exhibition, or other performance taken as a requirement for the degree.

13 THE NEW NUMBERS GRADUATE CONVENTIONS (cont.) 9x85 Internship/Externship –Professional clinical or experiential traineeships contracted by the student’s department that are either full-time, funded (internship) or part-time (externship) experience with a clinical, research, or experiential concentration in a specific area. Students must have faculty sponsorship and an approved Internship/Externship contract. 9x86 Internship/Externship –Reserved for continuation of Internship/Externship experience 9x85. 9x87 Practicum –Programs that are traineeships contracted by the student's department to meet the educational, geographic, and specific interests of the student. Settings generally have on-site clinical supervision. 9x88 Practicum –Reserved for continuation of practicum experience 9x87. 9x89 Field Study –On-site observational study or data collection/analyses in the transition from the academic to the professional environment. The purpose of Field Study is to integrate and apply academic theories to the professional arena.

14 THE NEW NUMBERS GRADUATE CONVENTIONS (cont.) 9991 Directed Research –Mentored research between a faculty mentor and a graduate student Master/Doctoral Leveling Exam(s) –Competency examinations that must be satisfied prior to sitting for the master’s or doctoral preliminary/candidacy exam Master Comprehensive Exams 9994 Doctoral Preliminary/Candidacy Exam (previously 799) 9995 Thesis/Project Credits: Master of Fine Arts 9996 Thesis Credits: Masters 9997 Reserved for future use 9998 Doctoral Proposal/Candidacy (previously 899) 9999 Dissertation Credits (previously 999)
