How to Submit a Syllabus
If you already teach a course on Latter-day Saint arts, or have plans for one, the Center for Latter-day Saint Arts offers awards of $2,000 for an approved college syllabi on any aspect of Latter-day Saint art, including visual art, music, theater, literature, dance, and film, as well as architecture, design, animation, and so forth.
A syllabus should include all aspects of a one-quarter or one-semester course:
Purpose of the course with the theme or problematic
Weekly topics and assignments
Study or discussion questions
Suggested paper topics and activities
The aim is to create a complete syllabus ready for use by teachers in colleges or universities. The accepted syllabi with the creator’s names will be posted on the Center’s website.
Partial syllabi, which are eligible for awards of $500-$1000, should include the same elements as the syllabi on Latter-day Saint arts. These syllabi should explain how the Latter-day Saint sections are to be integrated into the course as a whole.
Prior to beginning work on a syllabus, the faculty member should send a brief outline to the Center for comments and suggestions. Graduate students and others who may not presently be teaching are encouraged to submit syllabi. Proposals are accepted at any time and awards granted on an ongoing basis.
