A special topics lecture course in lieu of, or supplementary to, a 100-level course, as arranged by a faculty member to be used in satisfaction of advanced degree requirements. The course must be approved by the graduate programs committee in advance of the term in which it is offered. No more than two such courses should be used in satisfaction of requirements for any degree. To permit action prior to the term’s end, requests for approval must be submitted to the graduate director no later than the eighth week of the term preceding the term in which the course is to be offered. Proposed courses should include full syllabus, resources, and student evalua- tion methods. Courses that have a 100-level prerequisite should use ENGG 299.
