Course Syllabi & Syllabus Builder

Course Syllabus for Faculty and Staff

The button/link below allows authenticated users (faculty and staff) to access and download course syllabi as well as view some other basic course information.

Syllabus Builder for Course Coordinators

If you are a course coordinator, you can access, edit, revise and add any information and then generate a PDF of your syllabus and weekly class schedule. Follow the link below, and then use the navigation item “My Courses.” You will only have links on that tab if you are a course coordinator.

Login is with your Pitt username and password.

History of the Curriculum Database and Syllabus Builder

A database was developed to produce “maps” needed to meet the accreditation standards and reporting requirements. The first version of this database was called, the “curricular maps database,” because that is what it produced. The group of staff and faculty working on it, however, envisioned it to be able to do more for the school, and the database became known as the “curriculum database.”

Now, we are ready to begin to use more functionality in the system to generate three highly important documents:

  • The paper grids used in PYC meetings and by many faculty, staff, and students
  • Digital, calendar-like grids that allow for schedule data to be dynamically modified and viewed.
  • Course syllabus and weekly schedules produced prior to the start of each semester.
