Develop a Course of Study
If you wish to develop a new course or revise a course, your first action is to develop a course of study for the new or revised course. You will need to discuss this with the chairperson of your department. If you are revising Art & Design curriculum, please read the following Change in Guidelines for School of Art & Design Curriculum Proposals.
Review these resources:
- Recommended Curriculum Committee Guidelines for a Course of Study
- Center for Excellence in Teaching: for assistance in writing learning outcomes
- Writing & Speaking Studio: for writing new courses of study
- Course of Study Template (.docx)
Email the Office of Curriculum at [email protected] with your curricular proposal and any relevant supporting information. The Office of Curriculum will complete the relevant CourseLeaf form and submit the action into the Course Inventory Management (CIM) system workflow. If information is required, the office will contact the originator.
