Syllabi


Many instructors provide draft syllabi to help you make informed decisions about summer courses. Visiting students from other colleges and universities may find these syllabi helpful when confirming that your home institution will accept a transfer of Brandeis course credits and apply them to your degree.

We post course syllabi here as we receive them. Please remember these are draft syllabi and are subject to change at the discretion of the instructor. If an instructor has not submitted a 2015 syllabus, but taught the same course last summer, we have listed their Summer 2014 syllabus at the bottom of this page for reference.
