The 19 credits must include no less than 6 credits of elective Computer Science courses at the 300/400 level. PHY 335, MTH 317, and /or MTH 371 may be used as alternatives to Computer Science electives.

 

(Teacher certification programs) 19 credits, including C-S 120, 220, 340, C-I 420, and MTH 225. The 19 credits must include 3 credits of elective Computer Science courses at the 300/400 level. PHY 335, MTH 317 and/or MTH 371 may be used as alternatives to Computer Science electives.

 

Elective credits were changed to be senior level to comply with the guidelines for minors.

 

C-S 102, Web Development and the Internet, 3 credits, new course effective Fall 2002

 

?n introduction to the Internet and the fundamentals of Web page design: including history and technical structure of the Internet, markup languages and web page programming. Technical issues include client/server interfaces and network protocols. Other topics include societal issues: privacy, security, accessibility, intellectual property, and censorship.  Prerequisite: C-S 101 or 120. Credits not applicable to the C-S major or minor.?/p>

 

Intended to be a service class, no plans for Gen Ed at this time. It will be lecture and some demonstration, but not a ?ab?course. Very little coverage of the artistic aspect of Web design. Committee wanted Information Systems Dept. to be informed of class.

 

This was a first reading.

4.     Consent Agenda: Add FRE 430, Advanced French Syntax and Stylistics, 3 credits, to the French minor as an elective, effective Spring 2002

      

       Change was approved.

 

5.     Committee discussed the draft memo about reviewing/approving condensed format courses. The major point was to clarify what level of control was to be recommended and how to state that. It was decided that UCC would not review existing courses that were originally approved as full-semester courses and subsequently offered in a condensed format, but that the review should be done at the college level (college committee and/or dean). Information on the condensed format courses, including assessment data would be part of the Academic Program Review process.

 

Chair Schoen will prepare draft #2 for review at the next meeting.

 

6.     New Business: None

 

7.     Meeting adjourned 5:05 p.m. The next meeting will be Tuesday, March 26th at 3:30 p.m.

 

 

Respectfully submitted,
