Ah, yes, it’s that time of year again: back to school! As students hit the books once again, some of you may be wondering: how many courses are students cumulatively involved in this semester? According to UW–Madison’s Office of the Registrar, as of the first day of instruction on September 5, the total number of credit-bearing courses with enrollment for undergraduate, graduate, professional, and nondegree-seeking students was 3,653 — with the largest number (1,777 courses) being offered by the College of Letters & Science.
