Current Course Syllabi & Information

Modality Percentages for DSPT Courses, Fall 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most DSPT courses for Fall 2020 will be offered using all-remote modalities, including synchronous modalities such as Zoom meetings and asynchronous modalities such as recorded lectures and electronic forums. Recognizing the need for students (with the help of their faculty Advisors) to take these modalities into account as they plan their overall course load for the semester, DSPT is listing the approximate relative composition of each course with respect to the amount of class time to be spent using each modality. Further details can be found in the syllabus for each respective course. Classes for residents of St. Albert's will take place in-person as safety permits. 

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 often 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 DSPT Course Descriptions or the GTU Course Schedule for more information.
