West Coast University’s course numbering scheme essentially follows the logic of “Bloom’s Taxonomy” whereby lower order thinking skills required in foundation-laying courses is reflected at the beginning of an academic programs and denoted by course numbers start with “100”. Courses which are built upon the foundational sequence of courses require higher level thinking as expressed by the course learning outcomes and associated higher level numbering system. Such courses require application and analysis skills.
Graduate level programs utilize higher level course numbers reflective of the expectation that students largely engage in evaluative, integrative and synthesis reasoning and thinking skills.
