This concentration was too narrow to attract any students and we don't have enough Biophysics faculty to fully implement it. Any students interested in gaining experience in the field of biophysics will always have the option of pursing undergraduate research under the guidance of our biophysics specialist. We will also still offer a biophysics laboratory course occasionally.
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.
1 concentration termination - Concentrations to not go to the BOT.
CHE NOT and notify SACS
This concentration does not really exist. It is not on the CHE inventory nor is it on the baseline of programs at USC. This should not have been put in APPS. We are requesting that the Registrar remove it from the bulletin. Kris Finnigan said: She does not recall a Biophysics conc in Physics. When we look at the bulletin, however, the "Biophysics concentration" is actually the parenthetical description of the "Intensive [Physics] Major." Kris said before Mary Ann Byrnes retired she made a conscious effort to eliminate "Intensive Majors," which used to be listed as concentrations of the regular major. Since there also is no Intensive Physics major in our baselines or on CHE Inventory, she said it probably just got left in the bulletin to function as an unofficial concentration of the major, which did not appear on student transcripts because it was not officially approved through CHE.
