Course (Education)

The word course in the education context varies depending on which country it is used in. In higher education in Canada and the United States, a course is a unit of teaching that typically lasts one academic term, is led by one or more instructors, and has a fixed roster of students. It usually describes an individual subject taken. Students may receive a grade and academic credit after completion of the course.
