Chinese Studies and Film and Media Studies intend to share staffing of this course and coordinate scheduling to avoid conflicts with other FAMS offerings.
As the Chinese Studies Program Director I fully support the creation FAMS 365. We have traditionally offered this course concurrently as a topics course in FAMS, and now that FAMS has a full-time faculty member who can also teach the course if/when she chooses it will be useful for us to share the designator. By doing so we hope to broaden both the Chinese curriculum and the Film and Media Studies curriculum, encouraging students in both departments to interact with one another and develop a cohort of students interested in Chinese film studies. This crosslist is one of the first steps to making that happen.

Your proposal is being returned for the following reason:
• the selected grading system for the course is Standard (Letter Grades with Pass/Fail Option). When Pass/Fail is an option, you must detail what the student must do to earn a pass in the syllabus. This is missing. You have two options.
1) Switch to Standard (Letter Grades Only), and no change to the syllabus is needed
2) Change the syllabus to include verbiage that indicates what constitutes a pass
• Although not required, it is recommended that you change the course number to CHIN 365 to improve consistency with the cross listed class.
If the above concerns are addressed, and the proposal reaches the Curricula and Courses Committee by noon on August 31st, it will be approved and included in those courses being recommended to the Faculty Senate for the upcoming Faculty Senate meeting. If the committee receives it after that date, it will be considered during the next Curricula and Courses review cycle and can still make it into the 2019-2020 bulletin.
Please contact me if you have questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
