Course Numbering System

The first two digits of the SHA course number is indicative, in most cases, of the level at which the course would normally be taken, i.e.:

11-First-Year Students/Introduction
22-Second-Year Students
33-Thrid-Year Students
44-Fourth-Year Students
55-Provisional Course Offerings
66-Graduate Electives
77-Courses required for the MMH degree
88-MS
99-PhD

This, however, is not ironclad: upper-class students will be found in 1100- and 2200-level courses, and undergraduates may be enrolled in 6600-level offerings. The determining factor is the prerequisites/limitations statement for the course in question.

The third digit  of the SHA course number designates the academic area within the school:

0-Operations
1-Management, Organizational Behavior, and Human Resource Management
2-Finance,Accounting, and Real Estate Development
3-Food and Beverage Management
4-Marketing, Tourism, and Strategy
5-Facilities Management, Planning and Design
6-Managerial Communication
7-Information Systems
8-Law

The fourth digit of the SHA course number indicates a specific course within the area of instruction.
