With the support of the Vice Dean, the College of Humanities Curriculum Review Committee (COH CRC) oversees curriculum proposals in compliance with the university's policies and procedures. The COH CRC reviews proposals for new courses, new programs, and program modifications.
Proposals for new courses:
When submitting a new course at the college level, department heads should submit the following documents:
- A COH Request for New or Temporary Course Form signed by the department head.
- If applicable, a COH General Education Course Proposal Form for Tier 1, Tier 2, or Diversity Emphasis proposals.
- A course syllabus:
- For non-General Education undergraduate courses, please use/download the In-Person Course Syllabus Template.
- For undergraduate General Education courses, please use the In-Person Course Syllabus Template. Please also refer to the General Education Proposal Guidelines for guidance.
- For graduate courses, please use the In-Person Course Syllabus Template and refer to the Graduate Syllabus Policy as an added guide.
For UA Online courses, please download and refer to the Syllabus Inventory for UA Online Courses to build your syllabus. For the Course and University Policies section in this checklist, please use the required language outlined in this template.
New course proposals should be submitted to Erin Robbins (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Proposals are due by the 1st of each month from August to April during the academic year. Courses will be reviewed at monthly committee meetings during the Fall and Spring semesters. In order to meet university deadlines, courses being proposed for a first offering the following Winter and Spring should be submitted to COH by August 1st. Courses being proposed for a first offering the following Summer and Fall should be submitted to COH by January 1st.
Proposals for modified courses:
Courses with minor changes are not reviewed by the COH Curriculum Review Committee. Changes can be requested via the department head and adjustments can be made by the department's administrative coordinator who assists with curriculum management. The coordinator will communicate what is needed to make the changes in the UAccess system (e.g., a new syllabus, modification details).
If your proposed course changes are more substantive or if you are unsure as to what would require a re-review by the college and university, please contact Kim Jones, Vice Dean for Academic Affairs (email@example.com), for guidance.
Proposals for new and modified programs:
Please contact Kim Jones, Vice Dean for Academic Affairs (firstname.lastname@example.org), for guidance regarding this process.
