  1. Consent Agenda:                                

Educational Studies (EDS) Special Notes:

·         For Fall 2008, C-I 301 and 313 will be required in the major, instead of MUS 317 and ART 402 since no GenEd approval has occurred.  This increased credits in EC-MC and MC-EA by 4 credits.

·         Added W-S 230 or SOC 225 to required GenEd courses where EFN 205 use to be the only choice

·         Moved MTH 126 from the Required GenEd course to a Recommended GenEd course

·         Deleted duplicate listing of GEO 200 from Requirements in Allied Fields – is listed under Required GenEd courses.
