COLLEGE OF ARTS & LETTERS

Department of Foreign Languages

NEW COURSES

GREK 6A Elementary Modern Greek. An introductory course designed to prepare students to read, speak, and understand Modern Greek. Classes will focus on the study of grammar and vocabulary, as well as the reading of adapted passages. Classroom time will be spent on drills and on elementary dialogues among the students and between the students and the instructor. These drills simulate everyday life situations. No previous exposure to the language is required.
Justification: Knowledge of Modern Greek is necessary to participate in studies of the Balkans, the eastern Mediterranean area and Cyprus and the history of Greece itself. It is also necessary in order to use the resources of the Tsakopoulos collection at the CSUS Library. CSU Sacramento now has the cultural and financial resources to be a major center for Greek and Greek-related studies. We now need to encourage the study of the appropriate languages, modern and ancient Greek. Ancient Greek 1A and 1B already exist. Thanks to the financial support of the Hellenic Foundation, we can now offer beginning modern Greek.

GREK 6B Elementary Modern Greek. A continuation of Greek 6A, emphasizing the further development of skills in reading, speaking, and understanding Modern Greek. Reading selections from newspapers and other contemporary sources. Further classroom dialogues among students and between students and the teacher.
Prerequisite: GREK 6A

COLLEGE OF EDUCATION

Department of Counselor Education

NEW COURSE

EDC 171 Power, Privilege and Self Identity in Counseling. Multicultural counseling competencies promote the developmental awareness of one’s assumptions, values and biases. Focuses on developing understanding of how one’s values, attitudes, belief systems impact perception and understanding of others. Experiential activities will engage students in their understanding of self while developing their capacity in becoming a culturally responsive/skilled counselor. Examination of historical processes that have created inter and intra group constructs is explored for development of self as an ally in promoting social justice.
Justification: The Department of Counselor Education proposes changing the prerequisite EDC 171 A, B, C, D, E series of five one-unit courses to a one four-unit EDC 171 course. The current model provides the theoretical knowledge base to understand five major ethnic groups: Asian Americans, Native Americans, Latinos, African Americans, and European Americans by focusing on psychological, cultural, historical, and political background of each and the implications for counseling.
By integrating the content of the five one-unit classes (that were sporadically scheduled and therefore causing schedule conflicts with other classes) into one four-unit class, continuity and consistency (one instructor covering the same content as opposed to five instructors) will ultimately provide a stronger foundation for students entering the counseling/psychology professions. The intent of the change is to integrate a paradigm for understanding the nature of oppression by developing a greater understanding of social justice issues and developing the importance of one’s role as an ally (beyond the five ethnic groups) for marginalized communities and populations. Development of understanding of self development and one’s relation to others in how to deconstruct forces that limit socioeconomic mobility as well as building cultural competence within the counseling context will be key elements of the EDC 171 class. The name of the course will be entitled Power, Privilege & Self Identity in Counseling.

COURSE DELETIONS

This course, as well as the four other one unit courses in the EDC 171 series is being replaced by a 4 unit course titled EDC 171: Power, Privilege & Self Identity in Counseling.

Understand the relationship between higher education finance and the overall fiscal operations of California’s community college system. Gain a broad knowledge of human resource laws and regulations and explore issues of faculty and staff diversity, part-time and full-time faculty, collective bargaining, affirmative action, staff development and recruitment, and selection and retention of staff.
