Basic Degree Requirements for Bachelor of Science Degrees (120 Hours)
The current language is confusing as it makes it seem that the Economics, B.S. degree requires 128 hours. The updated language clarifies that 120 hours are required for the degree. This is not a change in the number of required hours for the degree. It is currently and will continue to be 120 hours. This is to correct an inadvertent error in the way it is currently listed in the bulletin. The note section is being removed as it seems unnecessary once the hours are corrected in the heading.
I'm afraid C&C is going to kick this proposal back unless you specifically state what you are taking OUT to get from 128 hours down to 120.
Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We are moving your proposal forward to the Faculty Senate. 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
