What's up with the course levels? What are the differences between a 200 level course v. 400 level course?

A 200 level course is a lower level course, typically larger size, which often requires less work than a higher 300 or 400 level course does.

Almost all 100 level courses are basic intro courses with a lot of reading and usually exams. When you get into 200 and 300 level courses, you still read a lot but often write long papers instead of take written exams. 400 levels courses are almost all exclusive to seniors (for their capstone projects, final research, or senior seminar) and involve research and paper writing or an internship.

Hope this helps! :]
