In the College of Fine Arts, we define curriculum in terms of the structure of the educational experience, ranging from specific individual courses to broader programs of study. Our College Council Charter mandates a standing Curriculum Committee with representation from each of our five academic units, and this committee is charged with reviewing all significant curricular changes within the college. This page provides information pertaining to the college’s curricular processes, timelines for proposing changes, and resources for crafting syllabi. Can’t find what you are looking for?
