Communication Studies Minor: all emphasis areas, program admission requirement, effective Fall 2003.
(All colleges, excluding Teacher Certification Programs)

To declare a CST Major, students must fulfill the following admission requirements: completion of a minimum 45 semester credits with a GPA of 2.50, including courses taken at other institutions; completions of CST 110, ENG 110, and CST 190 (or equivalent courses transferred from other institutions) with grades of at least B on first attempts.

Students who have fulfilled these requirements must see the CST Department Chairperson or a CST faculty advisor to obtain approval to declare a major.  A current transcript or SNAP form must be submitted to the Office of the Dean of the College of Liberal Studies.

To appeal these admission requirements, students must submit the following materials to CST Department Chairperson no later than midterm of the semester in which they want to be considered for admission to the program: a persuasive letter requesting waiver of the specific admission requirement(s) not met; a copy of the student’s current transcript or SNAP form; and a resume documenting experience and/or qualifications that justify admission to the program in spite of deficiencies in admission requirements.

Program admission requirements are proposed based on the following: 1)Major requires strong skills in both speaking and writing, 2) particularly since becoming a writing-in-the-major program. 3)The job market is highly competitive. 4)Communication Studies will be applying for accreditation by the Public Relations Society of America in the future. Additionally, this will  help match the number of students with the program’s resources (human, fiscal, physical).  There has been a growth within the majors of 600% and within the minors of 300%.  The Committee is concerned about the requirement to make a B on the first attempt in CST 110, CST190, and ENG 110.  It was noted that the department has an appeal process.

 This was a first reading. There will be a second reading.

II.

History would like to discuss ARC 315 further.  The Committee will review this again once History and Archaeology have had an opportunity to meet.

ARC 320, Historical Archaeology, 3 credits, new course, effective Fall 2003.

The Chair of UCC has spoken with the History Department.  The History Department feels that there will be minimal overlap between ARC 320 and their courses. 

ANT/SOC 300, Latin America in Transition, title, course description, prerequisites

Title changed from original submission of Problems of Developing nations: Focus on Latin America.

ANT/SOC 355, Terrorism and Globalization, title, course description, prerequisites, cross-listed

UCC Chair consulted with PSY dept. chair. SOC 338 is not close enough to cross-list it with Psychology, but notation made so students cannot receive credit in both. 

M/S/P to approve the proposal on the second reading.

3. First Readings:

    Proposal #14, HIS/ARC 367, Ancient Egypt, 3 credits, new course, effective Spring 2003.  This course is a survey of the history, archaeology, culture, and civilization of ancient Egypt from the prehistoric periods, the Pharaonic periods, as well as the Greaco-Roman periods (to the advent of Christianity).  Special attention will be given to reading historical texts in translation.  We will also explore various aspects of Egyptian religion, and the treatment of women and non-Egyptian ethnic groups.
