This proposal combines the clinical experiences and decreases the number of courses from 6 to 5, based on feedback that the first clinical during J Term was too condensed. GCC recommended the following: 1) refining the outlines and titles for the fieldwork courses to give more description as to what the classes are; 2) P-T 672 has instructional pattern marked as a change, but it should be marked as other- offered in a different semester; 3) refining the length of the courses to state that it is a minimum of 40 hours per week at the clinical sites; and 4) Correct effective dates.
This was a first reading. There will be a second reading.
Proposal #3, PSY 420/520, Advanced Research Methods, 3 credits,
prerequisites, effective Spring 2003.
