Supplemental Syllabus Information
OTHER USEFUL MASON RESOURCES:
GMU is an
university; please see the University Catalog for a
full description of the code
and the honor committee process.
The principle of academic integrity is taken very seriously and
violations are treated gravely. What does academic integrity mean
in this course? Essentially this: when you are responsible for a task,
you will perform that task. When you rely on someone else's work
in an aspect of the performance of that task, you will give
full credit in the proper, accepted form. Another aspect of
academic integrity is the free play of ideas. Vigorous discussion
and debate are encouraged in this course, with the firm expectation
that all aspects of the class will be conducted with civility and
respect for differing ideas, perspectives, and traditions.
When in doubt (of any kind) please ask for guidance and clarification.
