Course Syllabi

During the first week of classes, School faculty are expected to provide a written syllabus for each course taught. The syllabus should include the instructor’s office hours, the purpose of the course, required readings, a clear statement of major assignments with due dates, and grading criteria and policies (including attendance policies where relevant). The syllabus should provide the instructor’s clearly stated expectations for student learning outcomes in the course.
