Current Course Syllabi & Information

As a service to students in helping to make choices in registration, draft versions of current course syllabi are posted on this page 1-2 weeks before the start of each semester. Faculty are free to - and often do - make changes to these syllabi before the first day of class. It is up to the student to ensure that you are using the most current version of the syllabus. Before purchasing any books for a course, ensure that you have the correct version of the syllabus. If you are unsure, please contact the professor. Refer to the GTU Course Schedule for course descriptions and meeting places for all courses.  Scroll down for Fall 2020 courses
