At UVA, each department has courses ranging from 100s to sometimes in the 700s. I was wondering if there is a general rule of thumb when it comes to difficulty between the levels. I want to take SOC 2380 (Race, Gender, Poverty) and PHIL 3110 (Plato). But what worries me is the fact that they are 200/300 level courses that don't contribute to my major other than degree requirements. Is there an actual distinguishable thing to notice between 100 vs 200 vs 300 etc?
