CAA to discuss 29 course revisions

Luis Martinez, Administration Editor

The Council on Academic Affairs is planning to vote on 29 proposals for course revisions during its meeting Thursday.

In its previous meeting, the council tabled more than 27 new course proposals to be looked over during the following week.  Most of the proposals involved a revision to include an online section to the course.

There are a few proposals to revise majors or include new minors.

Some of the courses include JOU 2101: Writing for News Media and JOU 3000: Advanced Reporting.

Some of the majors include political science, as well as a revision to the political science minor and pre-law studies minor.

There is also a proposal to replace the Geography B.S. program with a new option titled Environmental/Physical Geography option.

There is a proposal for a Human Geography option as well.

Besides the added 27 courses proposal that the council will be looking at, two additional courses are supposed to be discussed, which are KSS 3700 and KSS 3860.

Since there will be a large amount of items to be discussed, the council will be meeting at 2 p.m. instead of 3 p.m. in Room 4440 of Booth Library.
