Here is your preview of Spring Quarter 2017 Classes. *
Please remember this course listing is provided as a snapshot of classes that might be of interest to you as an SoC student and is not meant to substitute for the listings in CAESAR or consultation with your advisor. In fact, there are often changes made on the CAESAR listings right up until registration and sometimes even after. Additionally, not all pre-requisites have been listed for all classes because some course descriptions have not yet been posted. So, take a look and see what interests you and then make sure to check the CAESAR listings to confirm class details. Classes are scheduled to go live on CAESAR on Monday, February 6, 2017.
As always, if you have questions about your own degree progress or whether a class will count toward your major, minor, certificate or other additional program, make sure to check with your advisor. The Undergraduate Advising tab at the top right of the Spotlight blog page http://comm.soc.northwestern.edu/src-spotlight/ will take you to their email address and contact information which is listed by major.
