Curriculum Action Notice


From:

Academic Affairs Committee

Date:

January 10, 2002 (a)

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, Helen Biblehimer, Elliott Hall 203, x4521, hbiblehi@mnsfld.edu.

The Department of Languages and Literature has proposed the following Curricular Actions:

#1

New Course Request:

Course Prefix and Number: ENG 326

Course Title: Women's Literature

Prerequisites: ENG 112

Purpose and Nature of the Course:

ENG 320 is designated as "Special Topics in Literature," and typically two to four sections of this course are offered each semester. The department of Languages and Literature believes it would be advantageous to create new distinct course names and numbers for those 320s that are taught on a regular basis. And Women's Literature has been taught on a regular basis. It is felt that this renaming and renumbering will have the following advantages:

  1. The subject matter of this course will be in the catalogue and the students' permanent record.
  2. Giving each course its own name and number will highlight the range of offerings in multicultural or minority literature.
  3. Having separate names will be useful since this course helps to fulfill requirements for a minor.
  4. By having a name for each course and putting the courses on a regular rotation students will be able to plan their future semesters efficiently.

Request that this course be considered for General Education to satisfy Group I Humanities (old Gen Ed); Languages & Literature (new Gen. Ed.)
