Students: Faculty members include a competency in the syllabus if the majority of the work in the class supports that competency, even if other competencies are related. Please note that you may use an artifact (assignment) from any class to support any competency as long as it effectively demonstrates your competency in that area. In other words, artifacts (assignments) can often apply to a range of competencies, even if the competencies are not listed on a syllabus. Therefore, it is often not necessary to take a whole class just to meet a particular competency. See the FAQs in the 289 Handbook for more information:
