IV. MAY SEMESTER RECOMMENDATIONS.

Whereas the UCCC agrees that most of the courses currently offered as May courses do not meet the intent of the May experiment,

Whereas the UCCC agrees that units may be better able to understand and police their own offerings during this session,

Whereas the UCCC agrees that deans are in a better position to understand and police their own offerings during this session,

Whereas the UCCC recommendation has been communicated to the Office of the Registrar that the Registrar communicated no problems associated with it,

We recommend that the May semester be treated as an Intersession though it may retain its "MAY" designation. Units may offer any course they feel meets the needs of their students and is appropriate to the scheduling. Courses offered during this period will not be approved separately by this committee, rather they must be drawn from approved curriculum. Special projects courses can be used for courses involving special demands, e.g., estuary research, foreign travel, etc. Special topics courses can be used for non-traditional course offerings. X course designations are also possible. The Registrar agrees that a student should be limited to carrying 3-4 credit hours during this period. Any exceptions must be granted by the appropriate Dean and Registrar.

V. MAY SEMESTER COURSES

Department of Media Arts

MART 490M AMATEUR FILMMAKING. (3) Amateur filmmaking and home movies as documents that reveal alternative and marginalized histories. The course includes a production exercise using oneís own family films.
