The history of Maneuver Warfare emphasizing doctrine and techniques while enabling students to become critical thinkers and better prepare them for future service.
Due to a change in curriculum directed by the Naval Surface Training Command, Amphibious Warfare has been deemed outdated and has been replaced by Fundamentals of Manuever Warfare. Intellectual rigor and academic standards demand that the full scope of maeunver warfare be encompassed rather than the tracing of Marine Corps history emphasizing the great landings of the Great Pacific War which has forged our modern Marine Corps. The Fundamentals of Maneuver Warfare course structure and content reflect the determination that (1) the history of amphibious warfare remains a valid intellectual endeavor; (2) it's scope greatly exceeds the study of the U.S. Marine Corps; and (3) a historical survey of amphibious warfare is best approached from a "Manuever Warfare" perspective, exploring the various levels of war and their impact on each battle. The levels of war would include the political, strategic, operational, and tactical/technical. This construct of classes will also prepare students to become critical thinkers of warfare, and thus better prepare them for future commissioned service to the Marine Corps.
Returning this proposal to Jared Fangue for resubmission, to get it into Capt. Walker's approval queue.

Request you expedite approval of this Course change. Earlier this year, Naval Education and Training Command approved a new title and syllabus for this course. This new course is a commissioning requirement for the class of 2018 and must be taught in fall of 2017. This course title must appear on their transcript in order to meet a Navy requirement.
In the interest of expediency, I am forwarding this proposal - but simultaneously send e-mail to the proponent to let them know of a couple issues with the syllabus.
Basically, Course Outcomes (section 2) needs to be converted to Learning Outcomes (and some minor rewording of the actual outcomes along the lines suggested in the CTE’s information on Learning Outcomes - https://www.sc.edu/about/offices_and_divisions/cte/teaching_resources/coursedevelopment/learning_outcomes/) and Class Schedule (section 5) needs to be fully populated to show the full 14-week schedule. I would also recommend changing the title of section a. from Class Participation to something that includes "Attendance".
The syllabus must also include a grading scale showing how a student earns an A thru F and a list of textbooks and other course materials should also be included in this syllabus.
If you will supply KC Kirasic (C&C Chair) with the updated syllabus, she should be able to make these changes without additional delays in the process.
Returned at Doug Meade's request.
Please address the points raised in my comments dated 16 Nov and resubmit to me asap. This proposal needs to reach Courses and Curricula by 13 Jan.
As I believe Kris Finnigan has indicated to you, we will work to have this change implemented in time for it to be accurately represented on all graduating students in Fall 2017 and beyond.
This change is mandated by Navy Eduction and Training Command. It is a requirement for Marine Corps Officer commissioning for Fall of 2017. Appreciate expedited approval. I was mistakenly left off of original routing due to an administrative error.
Necessity of this change is noted. As the C&C deadline has passed, other avenues will be pursued to ensure this change is expedited to ensure USC students in this program remain eligible to be commissioned when they graduate.
Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We are moving your proposal forward to the Faculty Senate. We appreciate your patience and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.
This course update will be reflected in the 2018-19 Undergraduate Academic Bulletin.
