CSIS Course Schedule

UPDATE 2020 WINTER COURSES: TERM 1

In response to COVID-19, most courses in the Faculty of Arts are moving online for the fall semester. All CSIS/GRSJ courses for Term 1 will be web-oriented or Distance Education courses.

For our Term 1 web-oriented lecture courses, most of our instructors are transitioning content to a combination of synchronous and asynchronous teaching which may include videos, recorded lectures, and some live components. Any synchronous components will take place during the scheduled class time.

Students who are unable to participate in synchronous components should discuss concession and accommodations with the course instructor or the GRSJ Advisor before classes begin.

Individual course descriptions will be updated as we have more information about each course.

Courses that are entirely synchronous will be noted here

The list of CSIS approved courses can be found here.
