Syllabus Template

Your Boise State Syllabus

The syllabus for a course is an opportunity to frame the course, set expectations around tone and conduct (yours and that of your students), and serve as a source of important information for the course. As a result, it is important for faculty to be intentional about the way the syllabus is constructed and what messages it sends.

Boise State does not have a university-wide policy governing what must be in our course syllabi.  There are several exceptions to this:  If you are teaching a general education course governed by guidelines from University Foundations or an online course governed by eCampus guidelines, you should consult those programs for guidance about syllabus content.

For the rest of us, the CTL has provided this syllabus template, with suggestions for language and construction.
