Curriculum Action Notice


From:

Academic Affairs Committee

Date:

April 11, 2002

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 requested the following curricular changes:

 

#1 Action: Course Deletion: ENG 357 British Romantic Literature

Rationale for deletion:

The Department of Languages and Literature wishes to delete ENG 357 British Romantic Literature and combine it with ENG 359 Victorian Literature. The new single course, ENG 359 19th Century British Literature, is a more typical offering for this literary time span, especially at smaller liberal arts institutions the size of Mansfield. This new combined course will reduce our British literature period offerings from 6 courses to 5. Five British period courses will make the department more efficient, bringing the number of British period offerings more into line with current enrollment and staffing levels.

List all programs impacted by deletion of this course: English B.A, English B.S.E.

The impact from the deletion of this course will be minimal. Reducing the number of British period course offerings may increase enrollment in these classes and help ensure their ability to run.

 

#2 Action: Course Change: ENG 359 Victorian Literature

Purpose and nature of change:

The Department of Languages and Literature wishes to combine ENG 357 British Romantic Literature and ENG 359 Victorian Literature into one course. The new single course, ENG 359 19th Century British Literature, is a more typical offering for this literary time span, especially at smaller liberal arts institutions the size of Mansfield. This new combined course will reduce our British literature period offerings from 6 courses to 5. Five British period courses will make the department more efficient, bringing the number of British period offerings more into line with current enrollment and staffing levels.

New Course Title: ENG 357 19th Century British Literature
