CAA to vote on business courses, marketing minor

Luis Martinez, Administration Editor

The Council on Academic Affairs will vote on changes to fall 2015 business courses Thursday.

Last week, the council talked about some of the courses being renamed during to accurately represent what the course will be focusing on.

One course in question is PLS 3253, known as International Criminal Law. During the meeting last week, some of the members had an issue with the proposal because of how much of the course would be changed if the revision was allowed.

The changes to International Criminal Law would include being renamed to Human Rights & International Law as well as many changes to the course description.

The added changes would also include the study of human rights laws in both the 19th and 20th centuries as well as looking at the effort of human rights leaders and different people’s movements included in these two time periods.

On Thursday, the council will be looking at a few more courses to rename for the fall semester.

The three courses that are up for revision for the will be BUS 1950, BUS 3500 and BUS 3950.

While most of these courses will remain the same, what these three courses will include in their curriculum will be technology delivery.

The reason for these course reevaluations is to help shape the classes to the point where most of them can be taught online most of the time.

While the council will be looking at these revisions, they will also be looking at adding a marketing minor as an option at Eastern.

The meeting is scheduled for 3 p.m. Thursday in Room 4440 of Booth Library.
