LIST #2 - 2010/2011

PROGRAM CHANGE PROPOSALS
UNDERGRADUATE & GRADUATE


The Curriculum Subcommittee will meet on
Tuesday, October 12, 2010, at 1:30 in SAC 275
to review the Program Change Proposals contained in this list.
(Response due to Academic Affairs by noon on October 12, 2010)


 

Program Proposals

Past Program Proposal Lists:

 






 

 

 

COLLEGE OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

Accountancy

NON-SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE

MSBA/Taxation

Justification:

Delete ACCY 281 as an elective but add ACCY 28x to replace ACCY 281 in the MS/ Accountancy program. Since ACCY 281 is the culminating experience class in the MS/ ACCY program, a new class ACCY 28x is proposed to serve as an elective in the MSBAITax program to avoid the confusion to students.

 

 

COLLEGE OF HEALTH & HUMAN SERVICES

Criminal Justice

 

SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE

Criminal Justice Undergraduate Program

Justification:

• Restrict major students to one repeat of all criminal justice courses.
• This change reflects the need to maximize the use of our resources, assure equity and provide access to students. Multiple repeats of classes consume limited resources and preclude other students from accessing class required for degree completion. Demand for our classes is consistently exceeding the available slots.
• This proposal was previously submitted on a form A and approved by the HHS Academic Council. At the Academic Policies Subcommittee level, it was tabled on the following grounds:
• It was a substantive change
• Should have been submitted on a form B
• Dr. Bikle stated he was reviewing data on students who failed to attain C- or better and requested that the process be suspended until he finished examining the data
• Dr. Bikle has submitted his data to the Division. The only significant correlation with failure to successfully complete the course was low overall GPA. The Division voted unanimously to resubmit the proposal on a form B.

 

NON-SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE

Criminal Justice Major

Justification:

Previously submitted form B attachment (side by side comparison of electives) contained at least one omission. Attached is an updated side by side comparison of electives.

 

 

Recreation, Parks and Tourism Administration

 

SUBSTANTIVE CHANGES

Recreation Administration BS: Recreation Therapy Concentration

Justification:

The National Council on Therapeutic Recreation Certification (NCTRC) has changed the requirements for classes students must take to be eligible to sit for certification. The new class replaces the 3 units of elective for recreation therapy majors. Adding this course allows CSU to continue to be in compliance with National Certification requirements for recreation therapy.

Master of Science in Recreation Administration

Justification:

The department would like to add a comprehensive examination option to the Master of Science program. Several other recreation programs throughout the CSU system have adopted this option. The department's master's program serves a high number of working professionals that often do not require a thesis or project for their jobs, but do prefer a program that can be finished in a timely manner. The examination option will allows students to indicate a mastery of the subject matter and a mastery of graduate-level writing in a timely fashion. The thought is that this will improve graduation rates and speed the time to graduation for many students.

 

 

COLLEGE OF SOCIAL SCIENCES & INTERDISCIPLINARY STUDIES

Ethnic Studies

 

NON-SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE

Asian American Studies Minor

Justification:

Please add ETHN 122 (Sikh Americans and Globalization) to the list of elective courses for the Asian American Studies minor program. This is an important course that should be added to the minor. The course has been offered in spring 2009 and spring 2010, and has been full both times. There is demonstrated interest in this course offering.
