Course Navigation & Content

Syllabus expanding section

A syllabus accomplishes many things: informing students of your class-specific policies, explaining the standards on which you will grade, delineating the requirements of the course, listing the required readings and where to get them, and outlining the structure and schedule for the course. Syllabi can also help students navigate the university to find the help they need.
