Below are links to upper year course information for the 2018-19 school year.  Excel versions are provided should you wish to create your own course schedule spreadsheet.  In addition, the course spreadsheet consolidates information for each course indicating not only scheduled times but format, credit weight, pre and co-requisites, methods of evaluation, if the course is mandatory and if it satisfies the practice skills, advocacy or substantial term paper requirement for graduation.  Course descriptions include a table of contents so you can quickly search by course to find the corresponding description. Courses are grouped by the same overarching topic areas used in the new spreadsheet and have the same indicators for pre and co-requisites and graduation requirements.
