We use the term syllabus to refer to the coverage of a subject, particularly when we are studying or teaching a college or university course. A risk management syllabus, then, is defined as a master list of what a risk management subject covers during a semester or trimester in a school year, whichever is applicable.

The risk management syllabus should first of all indicate what is the text to be used for that particular risk management subject. Since a risk management degree will cover many disciplines, let us focus primarily on one subject as a given example – Continuous Risk Management.

A Continuous Risk Management subject will have to integrate into its syllabus the following information needed by students:

– the course description
– the course objectives (or what the instructor aims to inculcate in his students during coverage of that subject for the term)
– the course requirements (or what the students need to accomplish, such as completed modules, assignments, and group work, if they intend to earn a certain mark in the course)
– the evaluation and grading system to be used (this is paramount so that the students know just what they have to do to earn the marks they are aiming for)
– a schedule of work to be done for the term (meaning each sub-topic under the subject – in our example, Continuous Risk Management – which the instructor aims to teach, and when exactly during the term the students should expect to be taught that sub-topic)
– a schedule of deadlines to be met (so that students know when they are expected to turn in the requirements they should be accomplishing to earn marks)
– a code of ethics is an optional part of any syllabus, sometimes meriting raised eyebrows among students; however, sometimes it is necessary to remind tertiary students that a moral code should be observed, as part of their training for the real world.
