A syllabus generally consists of the following items:

  • Orientation to the course.
  • Contact information.
  • A listing of the course topics (e.g., lecture titles).
  • Rules for the operation of the course.
  • General information on assignments and grading.
  • Specific policies, particularly as they relate to grading.

Many institutions require that a course syllabus is available to everyone.
