A syllabus is defined as “a concise statement of the main points of a course of study or subject.”
Although the interpretation of this may vary from department to department, the syllabus should fully disclose the faculty member’s expectations and requirements of the students enrolled in the course. The syllabus should include, but not be limited to, course objectives, student activities or assignments, course requirements, resources and references, and the grading policy. It should include the policy for accommodating disabled students.
The syllabus is distributed to the students at the beginning of the semester.
