Course Descriptions

General Information about Course Descriptions.

All courses are not offered each semester. Students will be assisted in making choices of course work by advisors.

The designation of “FA,” “SP,” and/or “SU” following a course description indicates whether the course is offered only during the fall, spring, and/or summer terms. “IN” indicates the course is offered infrequently. If no designation is listed, the course is generally available each fall and spring semester. In some cases, the course may be available only at a certain site or only in a specific format (such as online) in a given term. MACC will make reasonable effort to offer courses as listed. At the College’s discretion, however, the schedule may be changed.

The interpretation of course numbers used at Moberly Area Community College is as follows:

  • Three letters which indicate a specific teaching area of instruction are followed by three digits indicating the level of the course.

  • Numbers 000 to 099 are developmental and are not considered college level; numbers 100 to 199 are considered freshman-level courses; and numbers 200 to 299 are considered sophomore-level courses.

Any course may be taken at either the freshman or sophomore level except those in sequenced programs (i.e., nursing program) or those requiring prerequisites.

Two asterisks (**) appearing next to a course title indicate the course meets the Missouri Constitutional requirement.

A CORE 42 Logo  appearing next to a course number indicates the course is guaranteed to transfer to public higher education institutions in Missouri. The MOTR number in parentheses notes the Missouri Higher Education Core Curriculum Transfer (CORE 42) Course Numbers. See pp. 61-62 for additional information about CORE 42.
