To solve these problems, each digit is made meaningful.
The first digit (1-4) represents a course’s place in a sequence or the year a GRC student typically takes the course, if there are fewer than four courses in the sequence.
The second digit (0-9) represents the course’s type, as well as if it is a core to the GRC program or if it is part of a concentration.
x0y courses are general core classes.
x1y courses are general special classes.
x2y courses are printing core classes.
x3y courses are printing concentration classes.
x4y courses are web/UX/UI core classes.
x5y courses are web/UX/UI concentration classes.
x6y courses are management core classes.
x7y courses are management concentration classes.
x8y courses are packaging core classes.
x9y courses are packaging concentration classes.
The third digit (0-9) represents specific topics within each concentration/type. Courses that share the same second digit, like 120 and 220 (or even/odd pair, like 120 and 230) fall within a sequence.
For printing courses (x2y and x3y),
xz0 courses are printing basics and lithographic printing
xz2 courses are flexographic printing
xz4 courses are digital printing
xz6 courses are gravure printing
xz8 courses are binding and finishing
For web/UX/UI courses (x4y and x5y),
xz0 courses are web development and UX/UI
xz2 courses are digital to print workflow
xz4 courses are typography
xz6 courses are social media
For management courses (x6y and x7y),
xz0 courses are general management
xz2 courses are finance and optimization
Packaging courses (x8y and x9y) are xz0 since there are only two within the department.
Odd third digits also indicate a course is similar to their even-numbered counterpart, mostly for non-GRC courses. For example, GRC 120 has the non-GRC counterpart GRC 121.
