Academic Affairs Committee
January 26, 2001
This is a bulletin from the Academic Affairs Committee
concerning proposed curriculum actions. Within the next 10
days, please forward any comments or concerns to the AAC
Chair, Lynn Pifer. Belknap Hall 05, x4384, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following Curricular Changes are being proposed by the Department of History and Political Science:
1. Change number of hours for B.A. in History from 128 to 120.
This change will make it easier for History majors to graduate within a four-year cycle.
2. Change prefix from HST to HIS.
This change will be more consistent with course listings at other institutions and will permit us to use the same course numbers for the new courses developed as a result of this program review.
3. Revise degree requirements for B.A. (and, with Chapter 354, B.S.E.) majors.
As demonstrated on the revised E.R. below, History majors will be required to complete the following core curriculum:
HISTORY PROGRAM REVIEW
4. Delete existing courses that will not be offered under the new program.
Courses to be deleted because of traditional low enrollment: HST 250, 359, 458
Courses to be deleted because current faculty complement not willing to offer them: HST 225, 232, 346, 351, 385, 430, 451
Courses to be deleted because of curricular changes with program review: HST 101, 102, 215, 300, 301, 302, 306, 340, 375, 376, 386, 425, 444, 470
Courses to be deleted because they duplicate existing courses: HST 364, 365
5. Introduce new courses that will reflect faculty training and changes in discipline since last program review.
HIS 101: World Civilization to 1500
6. Change course numbers for existing courses.
HIS 103: World in the Twentieth Century (formerly HST 104). Number changed to provide three semester sequence for World Civilization courses.
HIS 265: History of Sports in American Society (formerly HST 205). Number changed to provide upper level course in Sports History, consistent with sports history offerings at other institutions.
7. Establish equivalencies for students currently enrolled at Mansfield University.
HIS 101 and 102 will satisfy the current ER requirement of HST 101 and 102.
HIS 300 will satisfy the current ER requirement of HST 300.
HIS 305, 307, 389, 431 will satisfy the current ER requirement for 20th Century U.S. history.
