In order to achieve consistency between the newly proposed curriculum map and the degree requirements as published in the 2017-2018 Un dergraduate Studies Bulletin, the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice is proposing a change to the GSS requirement for CRJU majors. This request is merely to harmonize the two documents and it does not seek to change any other requirements for the major or degree.
Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We are moving your proposal forward to the Faculty Senate. There is no need to attend the Curricula and Courses meeting, but it is recommended someone from the department attend the next Faculty Senate meeting in case there are questions from the floor regarding your proposal.
We appreciate your patience and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.
John Gerdes, Chair
Faculty Senate Committee on Curricula and Courses
