The Council of Academic Affairs unanimously approved a revision to the electrical engineering program at Eastern Thursday afternoon.

The revision included the course EEN-4275, Internship in Electrical Engineering, being changed from a core required course to an elective course in the program.

The course provides an opportunity for students to gain experience in the engineering field. The course is worth from one to two credit hours, while three to four credit hours are required for electives in the program.

At CAA’s next meeting, CAA will vote on a new political science course, a revised political science major program, two revised political science major option programs and a revised political science minor program.

The new political science course, which will be proposed at the next meeting, is PLS-1500 Political Science Forum.

The two revised political science major option programs being proposed are for the options of political science: civic and nonprofit leadership and political science: international studies.

CAA meets at 2 p.m. weekly on Thursdays in the Witters Conference Room in Booth Library.
