CURRENT ENGLISH MINOR:
Prerequisites (9 Hours)
One sophomore English course chosen from:
Prerequisites will also satisfy basic degree requirements in the College of Arts and Sciences, Liberal Arts division.
Required Courses (18 Hours)
One 200-level ENGL course
Currently, only ENGL 283, ENGL 285, ENGL 287, and ENGL 288 will serve as the single prerequisite course in the English Minor. We routinely offer other 200-level ENGL courses and students taking those courses are often interested in the Minor but cannot use them towards the minor. This change will solve that problem.
We are reducing the number of hours above 300 to 15 to make the Minor an 18 hour program rather than the current 21 (after ENGL 101 and 102).
Your proposal is being returned for the following reason(s):• The new minor is only 15 hours with the reduction in 300 or above courses. The other courses are listed as prerequisites and are not included in the minor hours. All minors must be 18 hours. The justification refers to 200-level ENGL courses being used toward the minor. The way the requirements are listed, those 200-level courses are just prerequisites and not included in the minor hours. The previous minor hours were only 18, not including prerequisites.
If the above concerns are addressed, and the proposal reaches the Curricula and Courses Committee by noon April 19, 2018, 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 Please contact me if you have questions (email@example.com).Sincerely,John GerdesFaculty Senate Committee on Curricula and Courses
