CAA to hear about political science, economics reforms

Staff Report


The CAA will vote on whether or not to change the name of the health studies department and major to health promotions at their next meeting.

The meeting will be 2 p.m. Thursday in room 4440 of the Booth Library.

According to the rationale, the health studies department thinks the name change reflects modern trends. The department of health studies has had its name since 1988.

The CAA will also vote on a policy revision for music majors and adding an online option to a pair of economics classes.

The music department asked for all the credit hours students earn while in ensemble courses to be able to count towards their degree, instead of the current six hours currently allowed.

The classes the economics department wants online options for are ECN 4751, Managerial Economics and ECN 4802, Intermediate Microeconomic Theory.
