Preparing Syllabi for Core Philosophy Courses

To all teachers of core philosophy courses:

Each of these templates for the Philosophy Department's core courses have the core knowledge areas and objectives of that course embedded in them. The templates are Microsoft Word documents which should be edited to show your particular approach to the subject matter and then saved as a separate document for public distribution.

Instructions for filling out the template are provided as "comment balloons" in the right margin of the document. If these comments do not appear when you open the template, or if you are unsure of how to remove the comment balloons before distributing your finished syllabus, click here to download a one-page instruction sheet Using the Core Syllabus Templates (Word) or view it online.
