UNDERGRADUATE & GRADUATE

to review the Program Change Proposals contained in this list.
(Response due to Academic Affairs by noon on September 9, 2008)


 

Program Proposals

Past Program Proposal Lists:

 






 



 

COLLEGE OF ARTS AND LETTERS

Theatre & Dance

SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE

Theatre and Dance

Justification:

By adding units to DNCE 142, 143 and 160 we are recognizing the skills levels and course workload that students must complete as part of the major program.  Eliminating DNCE 151 and combining the coursework and required learning objectives with the existing DNCE 150 allows for a more cohesive and intensive experience in criticism and practical theory.

 

 

COLLEGE OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

Graduate Programs

SUBSTANTIVE CHANGES

Master of Business Administration (MBA), Finance Concentration

Justification:

We request to revise the requirements for the MBA Finance Concentration curriculum. The proposal contains two revisions:

  1. Name and Course Description Change for MBA 223
  2. Add MBA 220 Financial Management as a prerequisite for MBA 221
The purpose of the proposed changes is to improve the curriculum by re-designing the course contents of MBA 223 and to ensure students are better prepared for MBA 221 by adding MBA 220 as a prerequisite.

Master of Science in Business Administration (MBA) Program

Justification:

The College of Business Administration requests to add MBA 205-Introduction to Managerial Issues in Information Technology in the Foundation Courses requirements for the Master of Business Administration (MBA) curriculum. One important finding from an assurance of learning study of MBA students conducted in 2006-2007 academic year is that some of the students performed poorly in Information Technology (IT) Management. Since some MBA students do not have an undergraduate degree in Business Administration, they would have not taken an undergraduate IT Management course before admitted to the MBA program. The inclusion of MBA 205 in the list of the Foundation Courses requirements will ensure that they have the critical knowledge in IT Management for their MBA study.

Certificate of Advanced Business Studies (CABS) Program

Justification:

The College of Business Administration requests to add MBA 205-Introduction to Managerial Issues in Information Technology in the Certificate for Advanced Business Studies (CABS)curriculum. Given the importance of Information Technology to the success of every organization in today's business environment, this new course will be very beneficial to the students in the CABS program to ensure that they have the critical knowledge in IT for their career.

 

 

COLLEGE OF EDUCATION

Teacher Education

NON-SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE

Master of Arts in Education - Education Technology

Justification:

The Master of Arts in Education - Education Technology (iMET) requires students to pay a Distance Learning Fee.  In order to facilitate the processing and record keeping associated with that fee, it is necessary to distinguish the specially cohorted iMET sections of EDTE 250 and EDTE 251 from the others offered by the department.  Adding "i" to the course number will accomplish that goal.

 

 

COLLEGE OF HEALTH & HUMAN SERVICES

Nursing

SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE

RN to BSN Program in the Division of Nursing

Justification:

N178 provides students the opportunity to demonstrate intellectual and creative skills that have been developed over the course of study in the Bachelorsí program. The project is research based and results in a tangible product to demonstrate synthesis of the studentís coursework

The current course was created and approved for the new RN to BSN program. The faculty have worked with this course for two semesters and identified additional course content required to meet the course objectives. To accommodate the increase in time necessary to complete the culminating experience, an additional unit is requested, bringing the total number of units to 3 for the course.

This change will not have fiscal repercussions, but will slightly increase FTES.

 

Speech Pathology & Audiology

SUBSTANTIVE CHANGES

MS, Speech Pathology and Audiology

Justification:

  • SPHP 224 delete (-1 unit)
  • SPHP 227 increase from 2 units to 3 units; addition of content
  • SPHP 250 change content

BS, Speech Pathology and Audiology

Justification:

  • SPHP 126 reduce from 4 units to 3 units
  • SPHP 137 delete (-2 units)
  • SPHP 133 increase from 2 units to 3 units
  • SPHP 142 (Autism) new course created (2 units)
