Customize: Program/Course Groupings

The content in this knowledge base is based upon the standard FACULTY180 environment. Your institution may have made changes to customize the FACULTY180 environment to meet your institution's needs; therefore, the screens in your FACULTY180 environment may differ slightly from the knowledge base. For more information, please contact your FACULTY180 administrator.

The Program/Course Groupings feature allows institutions to create programs (or course groupings) that can be reported on as related items. For example, an institution can associate the courses that are taught within the MBA program, then create reports isolating MBA courses and the related faculty members. Note that all courses are naturally organized according to the academic unit that owns them; therefore, program and course groupings are generally used for one of the following:

  • Gathering courses that span multiple academic units (e.g. General Education Courses)
  • Viewing a specific subset of courses within an academic unit 

 Before creating programs/course groupings, course prefixes and courses must be set up in FACULTY180.
