Current changes in state certification requirements necessitate a change in the structure of the School of Education MS approach. These courses allow students (generally PE teachers, Health Ed teachers, and other school teachers who have an interest in health) to be certified in health education. UCC questioned why the new courses are offered at the 700 level, why they don’t require prerequisites, and whether consent of instructor should be added to the LXs. The department will handle through advising.

 

M/S/P to waive the second reading and approve the proposal.
