Curriculum Action Notice


From:

Academic Affairs Committee

Date:

April 6, 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 Program Change Proposal has been proposed by the African American Studies Program and the Department of Social Work/Anthropology/Sociology:

 

Old Degree and/or Program Title (attach Old ER) Ethnic Studies: African American Concentration

New Degree and/or Program Title (attach New ER) African American Studies Minor

 

Rationale for change: We wish to revise the minor to delete courses no longer offered or no longer offered as an African-American Studies topic, add new courses that have been approved by the steering committee as an appropriate courses for the minor, and to restructure the minor to ensure that students take courses in both the humanities and social sciences.

 

List all changes:

Delete ARH 229, HON 100, 101, 201, ID 201 (ARH 229 has been renumbered and the Art Department no longer offers it) (HON 100, 101, and 201 were originally added when it appeared that these courses might be revised to include a greater variety of topics, including topics pertinent to the minor. This never occurred and these courses are not appropriate for this minor.)

(ID 201 has been dropped because no one has offered an ID course in Af-Am Studies since the program began.)

 

Add ARH 320, BUS 310, CJA 251,HST 452, 496, MU 301, SPE 252 (ARH 320 Art of Africa Oceana has been approved by the steering committee as an appropriate elective course for the minor) (BUS 310 Managing Diversity has been approved by the steering committee as an appropriate elective course for the minor) (CJA 251 Police-Community Relations has been approved by the steering committee as an appropriate elective course for the minor) (HST 452 is a new History course that has been approved by the steering committee as an appropriate course for the minor, and, due to recent hiring in the History Department, HST 496 Seminars on Selected Topics may now occasionally be offered as a Seminar in African History) (MU 301 World Musics has been approved by the steering committee as an appropriate elective course for the minor) (SPE 252 Inclusive Diverse Learners is a new course that has been approved by the steering committee as an appropriate elective course for the minor.)

 

Reorganize the minor to assure a diverse selection of disciplines. The new minor requires 6 hours of coursework in the humanities and in the social sciences. The new minor retains the 3 hour capstone course and 3 hours of electives, although it clarifies for students that they may take any African or African-American minor course not fulfilling a distribution or capstone requirement on the ER.
