Curriculum Action Notice


Academic Affairs Committee


January 25, 2002 (g)

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,

The department of Education and Special Education requests the following curricular changes:


#1 Action: Course Change: SPE 252 Inclusion of Diverse Learners

Purpose and nature of the change: Change number to SPE 275


#2 Action: Program Change: Change name of degree from B.S.E. Social Studies Comprehensive: History Emphasis to B.S.E. Social Studies: History (for certification in Citizenship Education)

Rationale: Rationale for change: The Secondary Education Social Studies Comprehensive certificate has been eliminated by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. The proposed revisions will prepare students who select the history emphasis to meet competency standards for the Citizenship Education certificate that will authorize them to teach history, geography, political science, and economics in grades 7-12 in Pennsylvania. Students must now complete the equivalent of the B.A. degree in their major area and demonstrate competencies in all of the collateral areas.
