Curriculum Action Notice


From:

Academic Affairs Committee

Date:

November 14, 2007

This is a bulletin from the Academic Affairs Committee concerning proposed curricular actions. Please forward any comments or concerns in the next 10 days to the AAC chair, Premalatha Junius, G04C Belknap Hall, ext. 4588.

Curricular Action Notice: Program Change
Department: Music

Rationale for change:
The MU music industry program’s music business track was designed to follow the lead of the business department in assembling a coherent and focused course of study in one of three possible areas of concentration: marketing, management, or business administration. The 18-credit block of business electives required for the B. Mus degree in music industry business track is therefore pegged to the business department requirements for an approved minor in one of the three areas mentioned above. This program proposal simply brings the music industry program and catalog listings in line with the changes recently made by the business department.

List all changes:

No music courses or requirements will be changed at this time. Changes reflect only recent adjustments made to select Minors in Business:
