Note that number of departments in the AC-1 section (31) differs from this section (37) due to some courses belonging to "interdepartmental programs", rather than a specific department, whereas in AC-9, faculty belong to specific departments. These courses are listed under department titles such as "Interdepartmental Arts" or "Interdepartmental Engineering" in AC-1
