Art and culture of India, China, and Japan from prehistory to the present.
This course provides a much needed non-Western counterpart to the preexisting ARTH 105 and ARTH 106 surveys of art history. ARTH 107 also provides students with a choice when completing the prerequisites for the Art History major.
Changes to the Major
Currently, the Bulletin stipulates that ARTH majors must take both ARTH 105 and ARTH 106. Bulletin language would be amended to state that ARTH majors must choose two of the three 100-level offerings (ARTH 105, ARTH 106, and ARTH 107) to satisfy the prerequisites for the degree.
Benefits of Offering ARTH 107 as GHS
ARTH 107 would satisfy a prerequisite for the ARTH major and fulfill a GHS requirement of the Carolina Core; thus majors who choose to take ARTH 107 will gain the opportunity to select an additional AIU course or an elective. As an art history course with a GHS learning outcome, ARTH 107 has the potential to be especially attractive to School of Visual Art and Design students, many of whom are visual learners and may struggle with text-focused historical analysis.
I like this course. To be honest, I'm surprised it has not been created before now. However, there are several issues with the syllabus that must be addressed before this course can be approved:
To have this proposal considered by C&C in March 2017 it needs to reach them by March 3. There are several steps between me and C&C (including Registrar and AIU Specialty Team), but there should be plenty of time to make that deadline, if you don't take too long to make the changes mentioned above.
The proposal mentions a planned change to the Art History major. Why hasn't this been proposed in parallel with this new course proposal? This should be a simple proposal to create. I, in my role as APL for Arts and Sciences, may have to start the proposal in APPS. If you need me to do this, or have any other questions, please call me at 7-1334.
Thank you for your prompt and effective attention to each of my previous comments.
This is a careful course proposal that is well suited for the GHS Carolina Core requirements.
Thanks for this submission. It is an excellent addition to the Core.
Thanks for the submission. It is an excellent addition to the core.
The course is approved for the GHS requirement in the Carolina Core.
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.
Note, that since this is a new course and we are already in the Fall 2017 semester, the earliest effective date is Spring 2018.
