2013-14 is a change in the required changes in the Global Comm. major

Approve as revised (Cutting, White) 7-0-0
ECON 102 Change numbering of ECON 102.

FSCC had previously asked the proposer to make sure the students who took ECON 102 cannot also take the newly numbered ECON 111 for credit.

Approve as proposed (Cutting, Menton) 7-0-0
ECON 202 Change numbering of ECON 202. FSCC had requested some changes which were made, but there is still a question of the math prerequisite: language as proposed allows student to take MATH110 , which will likely not prepare students well for this course. Approve pending clarification of the math prerequisite. (Hollingsworth, Menton) 7-0-0
ECON 101 ECON101: change in numbering to 112.

The FSCC has previously requested change to the language to prohibit students from taking both ECON101 and 112 for credit.

Proposals Held for Second Reading

ENGR 455 Proposal to drop delete ENGR455 from the engineering program

Committee asks the proposer to communicate directly with the instructor of SEC230 (White) before this change in approved, as ENGR455 is crosslisted with SEC230.  The committee did not feel that this should be classified as a minor school course modification (Hollingsworth, Sawoski)

Thomas will work to coordinate communication between the proposer and White.

(Cutting, White) 8-1-0
FNCE Portfolio Analysis proposal to allow students to take FNCE 450 more than once for credit. Committee suggests that instead of counting it for credit twice, a new course FNCE 451 be created for those who take it a second semester.

Cutting will communicate this back to the proposer. (Cutting, Menton)

(Cutting, White) 9-0-0
ENGR Proposal to drop ENGR 465 from curricul

Committee asks the proposer to communicate directly with the instructor of SEC231 (White) before this change in approved, as ENGR465 is crosslisted with SEC231.  The committee did not feel that this should be classified as a minor school course modification. (Hollingsworth, Sawoski)

New Business voted online (submitted after last meeting):

MUSIC Major School Program Modification

B.A. in Music

Committee asks the proposer(s) to communicate directly with the registrar regarding the following issues:

1. Please complete curricunet’s space for catalog copy. Curricunet’s is used for reporting and needs to be complete.

2. When and how do students declare an instrument. The proposal mentions a major instrument requirement but is silent about the process. Please work with the registrar to develop appropriate language.

3. Because the aural skills courses are co-requisite with theory but separate classes, it is unclear what happens if a student were to fail the 1 credit aural skills course. Can they retake it independent of the theory class? Can they move forward. Please work with the registrar to clarify the process.

Approve pending communication with the appropriate dean and Registrar regarding the clarifications listed.

(Hollingsworth, Cutting)
