Curriculum and Assessment

Course Proposals

Faculty who would like to propose a new course for one of the competencies or to be part of the University Programs must submit a course proposal form along with the Master Course Syllabus. If a course already exists, but faculty would like to add it to the General Education program or change its category, a course proposal and master course syllabus must also be submitted.

The process for submitting and revising courses on the General Education Program is fully described in the Curriculum Authority Document (CAD). For a current list of approved courses in each subgroup and competency, please consult the bulletin.

Course Proposals
  • Course proposals for the Gen Ed program
  • The student application for applied experience credit in the general education program
  • The application for a faculty-led experience to count toward general education credit

Course Recertification

Courses in the General Education Program are recertified every seven years following the standard MCS review process.
