Customize Program/Course Groupings

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 (such as General Education Courses)
  • Viewing a specific subset of courses within an academic unit 
 

Initial Steps

Course Prefixes and Courses must be set up in Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR, Faculty180) before creating programs/course groupings. Setting up program/course groupings is a critical step in preparing for accreditation reporting, specifically for AACSB.
