New Course Proposal for Pre-College Programs
The School of Professional Studies provides a variety of teaching opportunities in a wide range of programs throughout the year. Faculty, graduate students, adjuncts, post-docs and staff with academic knowledge and instructional experience are welcome to submit course proposals. You may submit more than one course proposal, but please use a separate form for each.
Prior to completing your course proposal form, we encourage you familiarize yourself with the particular program for which you intend to propose a course and to read through the relevant course descriptions. While we seek courses reflecting a wide range of subject matters, courses proposed should be consonant with the Brown curriculum. Given the size and scope of our programs, in many cases we will be seeking multiple courses in related areas, and in some cases multiple instructors for additional sections of both new courses and courses currently in our catalog.
To provide us with sufficient information to review your course proposal, please provide substantive responses to all questions. Should your course be approved, the information you provide in the Course Description section will also serve as the basis for the published course description – though you will have opportunities to adjust and refine your proposal on the basis of further conversations with us.
Only use this form for courses not previously offered through SPS. If you have taught for us before and wish to teach with us again - or if you are new to us but wish to offer yourself as an instructor for a course currently in our catalog - please email SPSCourses@Brown.edu with details. If you have questions regarding course proposals, you may also email SPSCourses@Brown.edu, call (401) 863-7901, or contact the appropriate Program Director directly.
SUMMER SESSION: If you have questions about or are interested in teaching in the University’s credit bearing Summer Session, please contact James Chanksy, Director of Summer Session and Pre-College Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org or 401-863-7905.
