Course Descriptions

Course Numbering Information

0001–0999 Developmental not-for-credit courses for students who need further preparation before enrolling in college-level courses. These courses award Equivalent Hours (EHs) that contribute to a student’s academic load, but do not count toward degree or certificate requirements.
1000–1999 College-level courses at the 1000 level provide students with foundational concepts or skills required in specific or multiple disciplines. These courses may be stand-alone or part of a sequence.
2000–2999 Courses at the 2000 level build upon the skills and concepts presented in the 1000-level courses. Students are expected to acquire foundational concepts prior to entry into courses at the 2000 level and are expected to be able to move forward to more complex subject mastery.


Many courses require prior satisfactory completion of another course to equip students with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in the course. For example, EGL-1020  Composition II: Writing About Literature cannot be taken unless EGL-1010  (the prerequisite) has been satisfactorily completed. In addition, for a number of introductory-level credit courses, a minimum level of proficiency in reading, writing, and mathematics, as determined by the college’s placement tests, is required as a prerequisite. In such cases, satisfactory completion of the appropriate developmental studies course (see ESL, DVE, DVM, and DVR listings) will satisfy the prerequisite as well. Students should be certain to check for prerequisites in the course listings that follow. Except when specifically authorized by the department chairperson or dean, registration will not be permitted if prerequisites have not been fully satisfied.

Course Contact Hours

At the end of some course descriptions is a phrase such as “3 studio hours” or “3 class/2 lab hours.” This indicates the actual time a student should expect to spend per week in a course, broken down by the type of contact—classroom/lecture, laboratory, studio, or clinical. If there is no such indicator for a course, students may assume there will be one class hour per week for each credit awarded for completion of the course. (Courses which meet in an accelerated or nontraditional format rather than in the usual full-semester, 15-week format will meet more than the hours indicated per week in order to reach the same number of total contact hours for the semester.)

Prince George’s Community College is a member of CyberWatch, a consortium of colleges, universities, and business and government partners dedicated to increasing the quality and quantity of Information Security/Assurance professionals. CyberWatch course numbering, which has been agreed to by member institutions, can assist students who may want to take a particular course at another community college due to work schedules, availability of courses during a particular semester, or moving to another county. The common numbering also is useful to institutions articulating with Prince George’s Community College by helping them quickly determine that a course is based on a common CyberWatch model curriculum in Information Security. Each INT course included in this program will show its CyberWatch common course equivalent immediately after the college’s course number and title. All INT prerequisites must be passed with a grade of C or higher.
