Curriculum Action Notice


From:

Academic Affairs Committee

Date:

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,  lpifer@mnsfld.edu.

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:

Six credits of World Civilization (HIS 101, 102, 103)

Six credits of United States History (HIS 201, 202)

Three credits of Historical Methods (HIS 300)

Three credits of Pennsylvania History (HIS 401) or Senior Seminar (HIS 496)

Six credits of European History from the following:

HIS 220, 313, 340, 345, 366, 425

Six credits of United States History from the following:

HIS 210, 265, 301, 304, 305, 307, 310, 315, 320, 333, 389, 406, 415, 431
