Graduate-Level Course Proposals
Proposals for courses at the graduate level, and proposals to make 300-level courses available for graduate credit, are reviewed by the Weinberg Graduate Curricular Committee. Proposals should be sent to the Dean's Office by Department Chairs, Program Directors, or Directors of Graduate Studies after they have gone through the appropriate departmental or program review.
To submit, complete a Course Proposal form. Note that in the case of undergrad courses proposed for graduate credit, the committee pays particular attention to how objectives, expectations and the evaluative process will differ for graduate students (#18). Forward the completed form and syllabus to Shelley Levine.
- Proposals are considered by the Weinberg College Graduate Curricular Review Committee.
- Important note: Is the a 400-level course intended to be an interdisciplinary course in a cross-school program (e.g., Applied Physics)? If yes, then the course will be reviewed by The Graduate School Administrative Board and you do not have to complete the Weinberg College form.
The department will be notified once the Committee and the Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies have reviewed and approved the proposal. At that point, the department must submit a New Course Form to the Office of the Registrar. The Registrar's form and instructions for completing it are at: http://www.registrar.northwestern.edu/scheduling/Back to top
