COLLEGE OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE

Master's of Business Administration for Executives (EMBA)
Justification:
The College of Business Administration (CBA), in conjunction with the College of Continuing Education (CCE), propose to offer a self-support Master of Business Administration degree program, the Master of Business Administration for Executives (EMBA).
The overall objective of this program is to facilitate the development of future leaders for the greater Sacramento region. This master's degree program will be specifically designed to meet the educational needs of seasoned managers and professionals in the region.
The EMBA program under consideration would:
•  Be offered at a location and with a schedule convenient to the professionals.
•  Use on-line technologies for research, assignments, and discussion in addition to classroom lectures.
•  Consist of 12 courses and an individual project to provide in-depth applications-oriented knowledge and skills for managers facing current and future business environments.
•  Have students move through the program as a cohort to develop strong professional relationships and contacts.
•  Take 12 to 15 months to complete.

The proposed program consists of 41 academic credit units: Orientation (1 unit), eight Required Courses (24 units), four Elective Courses (12 units), and an individual project for Culminating Experience (4 units).

The Orientation is designed to provide students an overview of each of the classes presented in the program, introduce the group to concepts and strategies related to critical thinking, develop their ability to conduct academic research and case analysis, help them familiarize with the on-line technologies for instruction-related activities, and provide students the opportunity to meet each other and start to form group norms.

The Required Courses reflect the cornerstones of the program. The Elective Courses provide program flexibility to meet the needs of each program cohort or various corporate or government agencies requesting in-house custom-designed curriculum. The Required and Elective Courses offered in the program are designed to develop executive knowledge and skills in five general themes:

•  Corporate Strategy
•  Financial Analysis and Economics
•  Strategic Marketing and Management
•  Leadership and Human Resource Management
•  Information and Decision Technology.

Listings of the required and elective courses are as follows.

NEW PROGRAM

Minor Entrepreneurship Concentration
Justification:
The Entrepreneurship Concentration is being offered for students in the College of Business Administration to more effectively meet the demands of students and the business community. The Entrepreneurship Concentration is aligned with the CBA Mission of ‘offering a quality business education that is responsive to the changing regional, global, and technology-driven environment' of the Sacramento Region.
Entrepreneurship Concentration students will complete nine (9) units of required courses. They will gain a solid understanding of entrepreneurial skills, principles and strategies that build an effective organization. All students will be required to complete the Entrepreneurship, Corporate Entrepreneurship, and Venture Growth Strategies courses.
A breadth and functional orientation to organizations that support entrepreneurial activities will be gained through area emphasis. A total of 9 units will be required from other area emphasis to complete the Entrepreneurship Concentration. The courses of area emphasis are provided in the supporting documentation.
The new Entrepreneurship Concentration provides students with the opportunity to gain better understanding of entrepreneurial activities and strategies within organizations. In addition, the concentration supports the growing demand within the business community to develop students with entrepreneurial skills that will enable them to be more effective in organizations that create new ventures, spin-offs, mergers and other entrepreneurial activities.

Required Courses (9 Units)
•  MGMT 187 Entrepreneurship
•  MGMT 189 Corporate Entrepreneurship
•  MGMT 185 Venture Growth Strategies

TOTAL UNITS = 18

NON SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE

International Business Concentration
Justification:
The IB concentration was revised in Fall, 2003 based on the philosophy that a formal program of study in international business combined with a concentration in a functional area conveys a solid preparation for dealing with the global aspects of the job. Since a student of IB can choose foreign language as his/her functional area, we propose the d eletion of the following description of foreign language requirement for the concentration from the catalog: “This concentration requires minimum competency in a foreign language. Competence is met by completion of course work at the 2B level (4th semester) with a grade of "C" or better; or by admission to CSUS from a non-English speaking high school; or by a letter from a professor or government consul affirming a level equivalent to the above.”

COLLEGE OF EDUCATION

Department of Teacher Education

SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE

Master of Arts in Education - Behavioral Sciences Option - Women's Studies
Justification:

1. Change minimum GPA from 2.5 overall to 3.00 in the last 60 units
  Rationale for the change in GPA: The change in GPA would be consistent with other graduate programs in our department.
2. Delete: An approved Statement of Purpose
 

Add: An approved Statement of Purpose that addresses: 1) why the applicant wants to enter this particular program; 2) career objectives which will coincide with program goals.

  Rationale: Asking applicants to write a more specific statement of purpose allows the interviewer to better understand the career goals and academic objectives of the applicant. This information would also help when advising the applicant on which course electives to consider.
3. Add: Admission requirement: Applicants must show evidence of completion of a previous course(s) with B or better grades, (undergraduate or graduate level), which focuses on the area of women studies and/or gender studies.
  Rationale: Requiring the applicant to have some academic background related to gender studies provides the applicant the opportunity to gain a general understanding of the core emphasis of this specific masters program. Any courses in women studies and/or gender equity taken prior to the admittance of this program will only help broaden the knowledge of gender and be useful to the applicant's awareness on gender constructs in society.
4. Required courses to include EDTE 290, Seminar in Culminating Experience
(Required courses would change from 12 units to 15 units)
  Rationale: Requiring EDTE 290 would be consistent with other graduate programs in our department.
5 Elective courses would change from 15 units to 12 units. Change the statement “At least 9 of the elective units must be at the 200-level” to “At least 6 of the elective units must be at the 200-level.”
 

Rationale: Due to an increase in the required courses, elective courses would decrease by 3 units. Total 12 units electives.

6 Name change of Program: Delete: Master of Arts in Education (Behavioral Sciences: Women Studies)
  Add: Master of Arts in Education (Behavioral Sciences: Gender Equity Studies)
  Rationale for Name Change: Changing the name of the option from Women Studies to Gender Equity Studies is more in concert with the current program goals and objectives. The current program is inclusive of equity issues for both females and males. Though it is not the intent, in any way, to diminish or remove the emphasis of females' importance in education or the inclusion of feminist philosophies within course content, the title of Gender Equity Studies offers a broader perspective of current and future areas of research for this program.

  Old Program (30 Units)   New Program (30 Units)

NON SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE

Certificate of Competency – Mathematics Education
Justification:
EDTE 228 is a new course that was established to replace EDTE 386 so EDTE 386 will be deleted from this certificate program and EDTE 228 will be added.
This change brings the catalog copy up-to-date with current practice by adding an additional graduate level course while eliminating a 300 level course.

 

COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING AND COMPUTER SCIENCE

Department of Computer Science

NON SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE

Master of Science in Computer Science
Justification:
Remove Math 101 as an admission requirement. There is an overlap of material in CSC 28 and Math 101. CSc 28 is a current admission requirement and will remain as the Discrete Structures admissions requirement. The department has recently removed Math 101 as a required course for the BS in Computer Science for the same reason. The department does not want to require any course for admission that is not required for the BS. Also, applicants with non-CSUS BS in CS degrees or degrees in related areas usually have had a similar course in their BS programs.

NEW ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
Admission as a classified graduate student requires:
•  A baccalaureate degree;
•  A minimum 3.0 GPA in the last 60 units attempted;
•  Mathematical preparation including two semesters of calculus+ and one semester of calculus-based probability and statistics+ +++++++++++++++++ corresponding to CSUS MATH 030, MATH 031, STAT 50+ ++++++++;
•  Computer science lower division preparation including programming proficiency, discrete structures, machine organization, and UNIX and PC-based program development environment proficiency corresponding to CSUS courses CSC 015, CSC 020, CSC 028, CSC 035, and CSC 060 and as evidenced by a pass on the graduate student placement test or a baccalaureate degree in computer science; and
•  Computer science advanced preparation asevidenced by a 3.25 GPA in the following CSUS upper division computer science courses or their equivalent elsewhere: CSC 130, CSC 131, CSC 132, CSC 137, CSC 138, CSC 139.
Applicants with deficiencies in the admission requirements are advised to remove any such deficiencies before applying.

OLD ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
Admission as a classified graduate student requires:

•  A minimum 3.0 GPA in the last 60 units attempted;
•  Mathematical preparation including two semesters of calculus, +++ one semester of calculus-based probability and statistics, and discrete mathematics corresponding to CSUS MATH 030, MATH 031, STAT 50, MATH 101;
•  Computer science lower division preparation including programming proficiency, ++++++++++++++, machine organization, and UNIX and PC-based program development environment proficiency corresponding to CSUS courses CSC 015, CSC 020, CSC 028, CSC 035, and CSC 060 and as evidenced by a pass on the graduate student placement test or a baccalaureate degree in computer science; and
•  Computer science advanced preparation as evidenced by a 3.25 GPA in the following CSUS upper division computer science courses or their equivalent elsewhere: CSC 130, CSC 131, CSC 132, CSC 137, CSC 138, CSC 139.
Applicants with deficiencies in the admission requirements are advised to remove any such deficiencies before applying.

NON SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE

Master of Science in Computer Science
Justification:
Add CSC 212 to the Database Management area of the breadth requirement. CSC 212 is currently an elective course for the MS in Computer Science degree but a required course for the Bioinformatics Certificate, which limits the possibility of students completing the requirements for both the Bioinformatics Certificate and the MS in Computer Science degree. Changing CSC 212 from an elective course to a course for breadth requirement can improve this situation. Among the available areas in the breadth requirement for the MS in Computer Science program, the Database Management area is the closest to CSC 212.

Give more balanced coverage of each of the five specialty areas in civil engineering to better prepare graduates for success on professional engineering licensure exam. The goal is to provide 3 units of lecture and 1 of lab in each area.
•  Transportation – Make CE 147 required and add laboratory (4 units)
•  Structural – Reduce units for CE 161 (4 to 3 units – CE 113 is the lab) and make CE 163 an elective
•  Water Resources - Reduce units for CE 137 (4 to 3 units – CE 135 is the lab)
•  Environmental and Geotechnical remain at 4 units, 3 lecture and 1 laboratory each

Reduce total units in program from 138 to 135, reducing time to graduation: Three unit reduction by requiring either ENGR 017 or ENGR 124 rather than both.

COLLEGE OF HEALTH & HUMAN SERVICES

Department of Criminal Justice

NEW PROGRAM

Forensic Investigation Minor
Justification:
This new minor will be open only to biology and chemistry majors. It is intended to supplement their scientific education with an orientation to the criminal justice system and a foundation in law, court process and investigation that will provide those interested in pursuing a career in forensic science with critical knowledge not available in their majors.
The minor would require the same number of units (21) as existing general CJ minor, but would substitute six units of investigative classes for 6 units of the current requirements. This minor would only be open to those majoring in chemistry or biology.
The Div. of Criminal Justice suspended our forensics option several years ago after concluding students desiring to work as forensic chemists needed the scientific depth that could only be attained by majoring in chemistry, bio-chemistry or molecular biology.
Although the Chemistry Department offers a forensic concentration within the chemistry major, the option includes only two criminal justice courses (CrJ 1 and 146). In an effort to develop knowledge of the criminal justice process and institutions in which forensic scientists work, many of these students have chosen to minor in criminal justice. We have routinely approved course substitutions that customize the minor to the needs of these students. This proposal would formalize that process and make additional students aware of the option.
This minor will broaden the future forensic scientist's knowledge in investigative process, law, legal process and the structure and function of police agencies. The vast majority of forensic scientists work for law enforcement agencies in close cooperation with investigators and prosecutors. An understanding of investigative procedures, law and legal process allows them to understand the larger context in which they work and makes them more marketable to potential employers.
To date, we have routinely authorized course substitutions to better shape our minor to the needs of these science majors. This change would formalize that process and allow more students to be aware of the option. We have conferred with the chemistry and biology departments and they support this proposal.

Program Requirements
Must be a chemistry or biology major and complete the following courses with a minimum grade of C or higher:
CrJ 1, Introduction to CJ
CrJ 2, Law of Crimes
CrJ 4, Fundamentals of Investigation
CrJ 140 Advanced Investigation
CrJ 146 Intro to Physical Evidence
CrJ 167 Police and Society
CrJ 175 Structure & Function of Am Courts

Department of Speech Pathology and Audiology

SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE

Justification:
In response to changes in requirements from the American Speech Language Association, we must add 2 prerequisite courses to our major. One course in biological sciences and one course in physical sciences. We have kept the focus of these courses open to increase the opportunities for students to meet these prerequisites through their general education requirements.

A previous error placing SPHP 146 under required courses and elective courses led to an error in the total number of units needed for the majors. The course has been removed from the list of required upper division courses and 3 units have been subtracted from the total units needed for the majors.

Proposed Changes:
In response to changes in require me nts from the A me rican Speech Language Association, we must add 2 prerequisite courses to our major. One course in Human Anatomy and Physiology and one course in physical sciences.
