About D1/D2 courses, and scheduling

Courses in the format ABCD 123 are 'regular' one-semester courses, given in the fall and/or winter and/or summer semesters. Courses in the format ABCD 123D1 and ABCD 123D2 are full-year courses, starting in the fall semester and continuing in the winter semester. Sometimes 'regular' courses are also given as D1/D2 courses (or vice versa). Please consult the class schedule for full details.

Notes about specific courses

  • AGRI 519 - Sustainable Development Plans : Although this course is offered by the Faculty of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences, it is an approved course for the B.Sc. Environment Major. Note that this course is restricted to students enrolled in the Barbados Field Study Semester.
  • EPSC 482 - Res in Earth & Planetary Sci : Until academic year 2013/2014, this course may have been taken as either a reading course or a research course. To count towards the DMURL, the work completed for the course must be research rather than reading. Starting in September 2014, EPSC 482 is only for research projects, and counts towards the DMURL (whereas the new course EPSC 460 will be for reading projects).
  • GEOG 490 - Independent Readings in Geog : Until academic year 2013/2014, this course may have been taken as either a reading course or a research course. To count towards the DMURL, the work completed for the course must be research rather than reading, and only if taken before academic year 2014/2015. Starting in September 2014, GEOG 490 will be for reading courses, and the new course GEOG 489 will be for research projects.
