Sample Course Syllabi

Here are recent syllabi for a sample of graduate courses offered in the program.  Please be aware that these are all “works in progress” and change, sometimes markedly, from year to year as professors teaching the course rotate or as we update the readings, change the organization, alter the assignments, and otherwise modify the course to reflect new developments in the field. Other courses are offered from time to time as well. 


I.  600-level Courses: These are exclusively for graduate students and operate in a seminar format:


II.  500-level Courses: These are “swing” courses that include both undergraduate and graduates. They generally enroll larger numbers than the 600-level seminars and operate in a lecture/discussion mode. Special requirements for graduate students, beyond those of the undergraduates, normally apply.
