Curriculum

A standing subcommittee of Steering that is currently reviewing its mandate, but is generally responsible for all matters pertaining to the academic requirements of the degree programs.

The Curriculum Committee’s duties include:

  • Reviewing and updating, as necessary, the calendar descriptions for CUST courses
  • Reviewing and updating, as necessary, which courses should count as “core”
  • Determining who teaches the core courses, by soliciting interest from all affiliated faculty members before the end of the fall term, selecting from those who are interested (by soliciting and comparing CVs and ideas about the course), and making a recommendation to the Steering Committee; if no affiliated faculty come forward, then the Collective Agreement is triggered for the hiring process
  • Developing policy to facilitate students’ enrolment in courses in other units
  • Periodically reviewing issues and policies concerning students’ progression through the program (e.g. exams, thesis proposal process, supervision), in liaison with the Research Creation and Community-based Research committees, and ensuring that calendar language about the program is up-to-date
