Carleton course numbers are prefixed by a letter code representing the course discipline or general subject area—e.g., “ECON” for “Economics” and “FYSM” for “First-Year Seminar.” For ECON course numbers, the first digit denotes the course level—i.e., “1” denotes the introductory (1000) level, “2” denotes the core intermediate (2000) level, “3” denotes the applied intermediate (3000) level, “4” denotes the advanced (4000) level, “5” denotes the master’s (5000) level, and “6” denotes the doctoral (6000) level. For 3000-and-higher–level ECON course numbers, the second digit denotes the sub-discipline or field that encompasses the course material—i.e.:
