(Response due to Academic Affairs by noon on April 13, 2010 )


 

Program Proposals

Past Program Proposal Lists:

 

 






 

 

 

COLLEGE OF ARTS & LETTERS

Design

NON-SUBSTANTIVE CHANGES

Interior Design

Justification:

Currently the catalog states the following: "A minimum of "C" grade is required in prerequisite courses."

We would like to modify this statement to read: "A minimum of "C" is required in all upper division Interior Design courses."

This modification better reflects the intent of the requirement (to insure students have achieved a minimum professional proficiency with the material) and eliminates certain "loopholes". For instance, our senior thesis and senior portfolio can get a "D" in these classes and still graduate, even though the "D" falls well below the level of professional proficiency.


 

Humanities and Religious Studies

Program Deletion

Subject Matter Program

Justification:

It is the HRS Department's understanding that the Subject Matter (Pre-credential Preparation) Program in Humanities is no longer going to be offered. The program was under CTC review during the 2008-2010 catalog cycle.

 

 

COLLEGE OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

MBA Program

NON-SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE

Master of Business Administration (Executive)

Justification:

EMBA 299 ia a new course to be added as an elective to the EMBA curriculum. It is a class for EMBA students to perform learning activities in subject matters which are more suitable for independent study. Students may also take this independent study to replace a required or elective class in emergency situations such as the death of a family member, financial hardship or health problems.

 

 

COLLEGE OF SOCIAL SCIENCES & INTERDISCIPLINARY STUDIES

Economics

Non-Substative Change

Master of Arts Program in Economics

Justification:

The department of economics is requesting that the catalog explicitly note that ECON 100A and ECON 100B are requirements for entry into the program. These classes satisfy prerequisites for several of the core economics graduate courses and in the past students entering the program without these two classes would be required to take them as conditions for being enrolled as a classified graduate student. As such, the addition of these courses as requirements for admission does not substantially change the program. In addition, the department is requesting that the project option no longer be offered as a culminating experience for the Economics masters degree. This option has become obsolete given the project requires students take an additional elective offering and complete a project. It is no longer a viable option. As such the elimination of the project option has no effect on the economics graduate program or any other academic unit.
