Fall 2017 Courses and Syllabi

Course Offerings for Fall 2017 & Previous Syllabi

If a course is not listed on this website you should assume that we do not plan to offer it this coming Fall- no further updates/predictions can be given at this time.

If there are any changes to what we offer this page will be updated immediately; some changes might be made before course registration begins on April 3, 2017.

Below is the most recent version available of a syllabus from the professor that will teach the course in Fall 2017. These are not the official syllabi for Fall 2017.

If there isn't a syllabus available for a class from the professor teaching it, the syllabus from previous professors will be provided or a course description written by the Fall 2017 professor. These are marked with a “*”.
