Core Course Design
Suggested Syllabus Language
A class syllabus is not only a record of assignments and activities; it is also a representation of who we are as instructors and the goals and ideals we wish to share with our students. The policies we choose to include in our syllabus – and the way we frame policies – reflect our values, and convey to students how we see them as learners and citizens in our classroom.
Arts & Sciences Core Curriculum Course Descriptions
Example Core Syllabus
Faculty teaching in the Arts and Sciences core curriculum have graciously shared examples of their core course syllabi with you. These sample Baylor syllabi, which represent common courses as well as courses taught in the nine distribution lists, are not intended to be used as models. We provide them in order to illustrate the various ways that faculty members teaching in the Arts and Sciences core curriculum can package all of the information contained in this site.
In addition to this section, we strongly encourage you to visit the Academy for Teaching and Learning ‘Syllabus Construction’ site where you can find help on creating a new syllabus, revising your current syllabus, or look at the Components of a Comprehensive Course Syllabus.
