The Council on Academic Affairs will meet to discuss the addition and revision of courses Thursday to in Room 4440 of Booth Library at 2 p.m.

ANT 3258, The Anthropology of Violence & Warfare, will be voted on as a new course. The course would be worth 3 credits and would start being offered in the 2020 Spring Semester.

According to the course proposal, the reason for the proposal is “violence is central to the collective lived experience and history of humankind.”

Prerequisites for the class would be ANT 2200G or 2290G.

Crime and Media: A Criminology Analysis, CRM 3760, will also be voted on as a course that, if approved, will begin this summer. The course will be on demand and worth 3 credits.

The course has been offered twice as a Special Topics sociology course, according to the course proposal. The reason for proposal is to “transition the course to a permanent listing in the undergraduate catalog.”

The course’s prerequisite would be CRM/SOC 2761: Introduction to Criminology.

The members of CAA will also vote on the revision of the Criminology and Criminal Justice major and WGS 4409 course.
