Course catalogs | William and Mary

W&M catalogs are online (current and recent), PDF (current and recent) and digitally archived (1829-present).


In the online catalog, use the drop-down menu in the top center to select the current undergraduate or graduate catalog, or to select archived past editions.

Tips for browsing online catalogs:

  • See the Index menu item in the left navigation bar.
  • The left navigation bar provides links to catalog sections. Familiarize yourself with each landing page.
  • Use the anchor links at the top of most pages to “jump” to the content you’re looking for.
  • Use the “back to top” arrow at the bottom right to return to the top of each page.
  • The class search is a great tool! Enter criteria such as “GER4B” or “C100” in the “Keyword or Phrase” box to see all classes that list that term in their descriptions.
  • The catalog search tool is also robust, but your results will be more manageable if you click “Edit search options” and include or exclude the appropriate result types. Also experiment with sorting alphabetically or by ranking order.
  • The graduate catalog includes all five graduate/professional schools and faculties. University-wide information and policies, which apply to all graduate and professional students at William & Mary, can be found at “The University”.
  • Need a hard copy of a page or section? Click the printer icon to open a simple version of the text, then print it to a printer or to PDF.

NOTE: A grant from the W&M Sustainability Committee made our online catalog project possible. Thanks to this initiative, we no longer print catalogs and we thus save 750,000 sheets of paper, plus the energy to produce and transport the catalogs each year.

PDF versions of recent and archived catalogs are also available.
