Graduate Curriculum Committee


To provide broad academic review of all proposals received from Faculties for new graduate courses and programs and revisions of existing graduate curricula. The Committee is jointly a sub-committee of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies' Graduate Council (for review of G+PS curricula) and of the Senate Curriculum Committee (for all graduate curricula).

Curriculum changes approved by the Committee are submitted to the Senate Curriculum Committee, and reported to Graduate Council.

For instructions on how to submit a curriculum proposal, please visit the Preparing Curriculum Proposals section of our website. If you are considering launching a new academic program, there is additional information on new program proposals on the Academic and Provost website.


The Graduate Curriculum Committee is normally comprised of representatives of curriculum committees from each Faculty and a graduate student representative of the Graduate Student Society.
