Standard Course Outlines (SCOs)

Due to high demand, several courses in the Department (listed above) are offered in multiple sections, to accomodate students while maintaining high levels of education. In order to make sure that students taking sections of the same courses receive the same level of education and sections achieve the same common objectives, the Department has created Standard Course Outlines for those classes with multiple sections.

These Standard Course Outlines are broad descriptions of the goals, measurements and methods of a class, ensuring that, no matter which faculty member teaches the class, students will be receiving a similar education, while also giving faculty the freedom to teach the class taking advantage of their own strengths.

Following are the classes with multiple sections that the Department offers currently, and their respective SCOs. SCOs are available as either a Word file (.doc or .docx) or in PDF.
