The change in number for Science and Technology in Society from 900-150 to 600-150 and the change in requisites for 600-201 Seminar: Introduction to Liberal Studies in the College of Letters and Sciences were received and recorded on a Phil Johns/Meg Waraczynski motion. It was noted that the course 600-150 still retains General Education (GM) credit.
George Ferencz moved to receive and record the proposal from the Communication department for a change in title, number, requisites, and description of course 164-493 Internship in Mass Communication to 164-493G Internship in Journalism, and 164-493A Internship in Advertising. Greg Green seconded the motion which carried. Marilyn Lavin moved, and Sally Vogl-Bauer seconded a motion to approve the new course 164-323 Advertising Practicum. After some discussion, it was decided that the course would be more appropriately offered as a special course (164-492). A vote was held, Sally Vogl-Bauer abstained, and the motion to approve the new course 164-323 failed.
The Economics Department’s proposal for changes in title and number from 230-451 (651) Economies of Asia to 230-351 (551) Economies of Asia (Emerging Markets) was received and recorded on a Marilyn Lavin/Meg Waraczynski motion. It was noted that there needs to be a change in the Asian Studies minor to reflect this action.
Marilyn Lavin then moved to approve the Finance and Business Law Department’s new course proposal 240-484 Applied Investments. Greg Green seconded the motion, and the motion carried.
The proposals from the History Department for changes in requisites for 740-315 Women in American History, 740-317 United States Social History, 1865 to Present, 740-342 Early Latin America to 1860, and 740-343 Modern Latin America were received and recorded as a package on a Meg Waraczynski/Phil Johns motion. The new course 740-347 Revolutionary Movements in Latin America which includes General Education (Humanities) credit was approved as on a Meg Waraczynski/Phil Johns motion. (The title was originally submitted as Revolutionary Change in Latin America)
Phil Johns moved, and Meg Waraczynski seconded, to approve the new course proposal 820-255 Introduction to Comparative Politics from the Political Sciences Department. The motion carried.
After much discussion regarding the reports from the General Education Committee for U.S. and World Context and World of The Arts, a motion to accept the reports upon a positive review of the self-study by the UCC was approved on a Phil Johns/Scott Bradley motion. It was also requested that future reports from the General Education Committee include both a copy of the self-study and a copy of the report including discussion minutes.
