Graduate Curriculum

The Graduate Curriculum Committee will be responsible for the curricula of graduate programs in the School of Liberal Arts. The Committee will receive proposals for graduate degrees or certificates to be offered in the School of Liberal Arts and for courses that are to be added to or dropped from existing graduate curricula or that are to be significantly revised. After its review, the Graduate Curriculum Committee will present proposals for new or significantly revised graduate degrees or certificates to the Faculty Assembly for approval.

The committee will be composed of six members: one faculty member who is a representative of the School of Liberal Arts on the IU Graduate Council, three faculty members who are members of the IU Graduate Faculty, a designated Agenda Council representative, and a non-voting School administrative officer designated by the Dean.

An online Course Approval System is available to request a new course or request a course change. This system allows a faculty member or other approved academic unit official to submit a request online which will then route to designated individuals as part of a workflow process. Once the request has been approved at all levels, the course request will be posted to the All University Course Remonstrance list on the 1st day of the upcoming month; the current course list will be available for review until the end of the month. Objections to any proposed courses should be raised following the Course Remonstrance process.

Initiate a new course request or request a course change (from Onestart):

  • Faculty Users: Log into Onestart.  Services > Faculty Systems > Curriculum Management (content area) > Initiate New Course/Change Course Request
  • Approved Administrative Users: Log into Onestart.  Services > Administrative Systems > SIS > SIS Admin eForms > Initiate New Course/Change Course Request
  • The course request form should be self-explanatory but complete detail about the form and the course remonstrance process can be found here.
