Course Syllabus Committee

The faculty’s Course Syllabus Committee helps the departments in their work to ensure that first- and second-cycle syllabi are of good quality. The committee acts as support both in the development of new course and programme syllabi and in the revision of existing syllabi.

The aim of the faculty-wide Course Syllabus Committee is to ensure that all course syllabi at the Faculty of Social Sciences are of good quality and satisfy legal requirements, as a part of the faculty’s quality assurance management.

The Course Syllabus Committee usually meets once a month and reviews the course syllabi that the departments wish to take up.

In addition to this, the Course Syllabus Committee carries out spot checks once per semester with an aim to follow up the quality of the faculty’s course syllabi.

See the Swedish version of this page for a list of the committee's members.

Committee procedure

The guiding document for the committee’s work is the course syllabus template of the Faculty of Social Sciences. Those involved in working on course syllabi can use the template for support and guidance.

The template is based on the vice-chancellor’s rules of application for first and second cycle course syllabi and the list of rights for the University’s students.

Course and programme syllabi can be sent to the committee for review and support before they are to be approved or revised. It is strongly recommended to use the faculty-wide Course Syllabus Committee before new course syllabi are to be approved or undergo major revisions. To get courses on the agenda, contact the Programme Coordinator at the Faculty Office at the latest one week before a forthcoming meeting. The course syllabi need to be accessible in Lubas.

After the committee has reviewed the course syllabi you will get written feedback.

You can find out more about the faculty’s procedures in the document below.
