Course List

Education courses are listed on this page using the Course List module. The search Filter allows you to search for specific courses by entering a keyword or course number, and you can view the Course Description and details by selecting "View" next to each course. Information for each course may include:

  • The Course Number
  • The Course Title
  • The number of Credits required for the course.
  • The link to the course's Syllabus of Record, if one is available online. Please note that a Syllabus of Record is reflective only of the basic requirements for the course and serves as an example of content and assignments the course should offer. The Syllabus of Record assists faculty in preparation of their own individual syllabus for distribution to students. Syllabi for individual course sections are developed by program faculty and will vary in assignments and content.
  • The link to any key assessment Rubrics if used in the course. Please note that assessment rubrics are only used to collect course data from "key" courses within the College of Education programs. While all courses have assignments, only certain courses utilize assessment rubrics.
  • The Course Description as it appears in the GVSU Course Catalog.
