TWO-SEMESTER SEQUENCE OF COURSES
(One two-semester sequence required)
asked the CLS Core Curriculum Committee to review/ update the associate degree
in order to bring it more in line with general education. The committee reviewed
UW-L’s gen ed and System’s associate degree requirements and made the
appropriate changes to our associate degree.
A draft was sent to all deans and department chairs to review more than
once. Chairs were asked to submit courses for the “2-semester sequence”. Some
UCC members asked about requiring only 15 resident credits; how the 2-semester
sequence list was developed; and what the appropriate “home” is for the
associate degree, recognizing that this is a campuswide program, not a CLS
program. The Undergraduate Curriculum Committee requested the following: 1)
provide written support from all deans and, 2) check with other campuses to see
if they have minimum resident credit requirements. UCC needs to think about a
recommendation about assigning associate degree oversight. All changes to the
General Education Program will be automatically reflected, whenever possible, in
the associate degree. This was the first reading. There will be a second reading.
