Below is an example of a syllabus for a college course. Each semester I change my syllabus and since this one was done many years ago, my current syllabus looks quite a bit different. But I'm posting this syllabus here for what it is worth. 
For my currently recommended syllabus format please see:  SYLLABUS DESIGN.
