The Academic Affairs Council on Thursday unanimously approved a new course in political science and public health as a course in politics for public health students.
The Department of Public Health has requested a health policy available to elective students.
Prior to the creation of this new course, a similar course already existed in the form of a thematic course in political science offered every two years.
Changes to this course, now that it is a political science/public health course, include an expanded version of the original thematic political science course.
With the course now under both the Departments of Political Science and Public Health, both departments anticipate that the course will be available each academic year.
After the CAA suggested a revision to the wording of the course descriptions, the CAA unanimously approved revisions for the new course to be added.
The CAA has approved a course revision to the Professional and Technical Curriculum for CTE-3404 Seminar in Instructional Technology.
Course revisions included course credit hours to increase from two to three credit hours, as well as additional course materials to teach in the classroom.
The CAA unanimously approved revisions to the Instructional Technology Seminar course.
The CAA also approved seven course revisions for courses in the Communication Studies Department and one revision to the Communication Major in the Mass Communication Option.
The seven courses were the subject of a request for review by the Department of Communication Studies after a review of the curriculum showed that these courses had not been reviewed for at least a decade or not since the inception of the Classes.
The seven courses include CMN-2010: Introduction to Communication Theories, CMN-3300: Interviewing, CMN-3530: Film Communication, CMN-3640: Advanced Interpersonal Communication, CMN-3950: Conferences and Event Planning, CMN-4030 : Seminar I and CMN-4921: Seminar in public relations.
The CAA has unanimously approved revisions to the courses Introduction to Communication Theories, Interviewing, Advanced Interpersonal Communication, Seminar I and Seminar in Public Relations.
The CAA has unanimously approved revisions for the course revisions in Film Communication and Conferences and Event Planning.
