   Film Minor
Summary of the Changes:
Our reason for updating the film minor is (1) to provide progressive structure to the course of study with a required and prerequisite course foundation and (2) to shift the primary focus of study from film as literary text to film as cinematic text. The shift in emphasis is being achieved through specific course offerings that fully represent the areas of expertise of the faculty, but more generally through the changing of subject prefixes to FIL (FILM) from ENG (ENGLISH), which not only is more accurate to the course content but will also allow students to do catalog searches for film classes, improving the manageability of the minor. We have also reviewed film classes being offered in departments outside of English: some are no longer being offered; some are new and need to be added to the minor. The structures of the old and revised minor are illustrated on a separate attachment that outlines the requirements and prerequisites as they should be listed in the course catalog.

  To see the overview of the old minor and the revised minor please refer to the attachment, which is made up of the following changes:

  We will be adding two required courses to the film minor curriculum:
  LIT 3xxx: The Art of Crtiical Reading (3.0)
  FIL 3xxx: Introduction to Film Studies (prerequisite to several upper level film courses) (3.0)

  We will be adding one new course:
  FIL 4xxx: Documentary Studies

  We will be changing several courses from the subject prefix of ENG to FIL:
  From ENG 3132 to FIL 3xxx: Introduction to Film Studies
  From ENG 3603 to FIL 3xxx: American Film
  From ENG 4930 to FIL 4xxx: Advanced topics in Film
  From ENG 3930 to FIL 3xxx: Topics in Film

  We will be changing the title of one course:
  From ENG 4105 Film as Literature to ENG 4105 Film and Literature

The Subject of Composition (3 crs)
Prerequisites:  Permission of the Graduate Coordinator
Corequisites:  None
Course Description: 
The Subject of Composition is a detailed study of contemporary composition theory as a field of research and study. Our goal in the seminar will be to ready those teaching or preparing to teach writing in high school or college with the theoretical background for this challenge. To this end, we will begin the course familiarizing students with the major theoretical ground that stakes the field, particularly since 1966 when Composition Studies emerged as a discipline. Following this theoretical analysis, we will turn our study to another subject of composition: the writing student. Cognitive and literacy theories will provide us theories about how students learn to think and how this thinking is shaped by language within a particular historical, social, and cultural context. No new faculty or additional resources are required for this course.

MA- English Major English Track
Summary of the Changes:
  The English department proposes instituting a four-course concentration in Composition and Rhetoric (C & R) to begin in Fall 2008 and to be housed within UNF's English graduate program.

  The concentration will consist of four ENC courses offered at the 6000 level. These courses will be ENC 6333 ("The Subject of Composition"), ENC 6702 ("Grammar and Rhetoric of the Sentence and Paragraph"), ENC 6720 ("Five Problems in Composition"), and ENG 6942 ("DIS:Practicum--Teaching Composition"). The concentration is devoted to theoretical and pedagogical preparation in writing studies. The department believes these courses will help students attain proficiency in the teaching of Composition and Rhetoric within UNF's own Writing Program and at community colleges. Three of these courses (ENC 6333, ENC 6702, and ENC 6720) will have no prerequisites.

  Graduate students in English will be allowed to enroll direclty in these three courses. Access to these three for those outside English will depend upon the English graduate coordinator's consent and availability of seats. With regard to the fourth course, the Practicum, ENG 6942, two of the concentration's three other courses (ENC 6333, ENC 6702, ENC 6720) will serve as prerequisites. Because the MA students will be expected to fulfill all of the program's regular requirements, they will devote four electives to the C & R courses.

  Rationale: Four reasons for a Composition & Rhetoric Concentration. First, graduate programs in English (Georgia State, USF, UCF, FSU, Florida, Georgia, to name a few) are increasingly offering doctorates, master's degrees, certificates, and / or concentrations in Composition and Rhetoric because the subject prepares students for professional environments. Second, the presence of a graduate Composition and Rhetoric concentration conducted by holders of the doctorate in Composition and Rhetoric will contribute toward raising awareness both on the UNF campus and beyond about the best practices in the teaching of college writing. Third, some of the English graduate program's former students go on to teach ENC 1101, LIT 2000, and LIT 2932 here in UNF's Writing Program. By offering formal training in composition, the program will contribute to raising the level of professionalism among UNF's writing instructors. Moreover, UNF's Writing Program administrator, Leslie Kaplan, has indicated that, as the university grows to 20,000 students, the Writing Program will need this concentration in order to help staff the General Education writing classes. And fourth, UNF's MA in English serves as the chief credential that students need to teach English in community colleges such as Florida Community College Jacksonville (FCCJ) and St. Johns River Community College. UNF's former English graduate students almost always teach composition, and sometimes composition is the only subject they teach. The English graduate program seeks to provide students with instruction that will enhance their qualifications for this kind of work. Along these lines, several FCCJ deans have spoken very encouragingly with regard to the UNF's English program instituting this concentration.

New Minor: African Diaspora and African American Studies
Summary of the Changes:
  The proposed minor, African Diaspora and African American Studies (ADAAS) is interdisciplinary. It is designed to provide students who successfully complete the program with extensive knowledge of and insight into Africa (particularly Black Africa, south of the Sahara) and the experiences of people whose cultures originate from that part of the world. One major goal of this course of study is to build students' knowledge about the geography and history of the continent and cultures of the diverse groups of peoples of the African Diaspora. In addition, students enrolled in the minor will learn about major economic and political developments in Africa and the continent's interaction with and the impact of these factors on other parts of the world. Special emphasis will be placed on acquiring a deep understanding of the history and culture of the descendants of Black Africans in the United States.

  Students in the minor can approach ADAAS from a variety of perspectives. For example, students may choose to focus on cultural dimensions of the African Diaspora by taking courses in anthropology, religion, sociology and the arts (including visual, literary and performing arts). Or students may decide to concentrate on historical developments and/or international relations (with emphasis on political and economic factors). Students also have the option of approaching the minor from a combination of these angles.

  This course of studies is being proposed to fill a very significant void in the curriculum offered at the University of North Florida. Although a number of classes are available that address the content of the African Diaspora, students are not able to get a coherent understanding of this complex topic. UNF is the only institution in the system of the colleges and universities in Florida that does not provide its students with the opportunity to get a systematic and concentrated examination of the African Diaspora by offering a Black Studies program.

  In addition to giving students a rich academic experience, other objectives of the minor are to instill a lifelong interest in the African Diaspora and to introduce students to employment and career opportunities available to those with knowledge, expertise and experiences in African Diaspora and African American Studies. Consequently, students will be encouraged to take advantage of all opportunities both on campus and off campus, in the classroom and beyond to learn about these very interesting and complex subjects. Students will also be expected to contribute to the growing body of information on the Diaspora. Therefore, all students enrolled in the program must complete at least one of the following: a Service Learning project, a Study Abroad, an Internship or Independent Study.

  To complete the minor students must take sufficient classes to earn 15 credits. To satisfy this requirement ADAAS students must successfully complete the core course, "The Civil Rights Movement" (or an equivalent class approved by the supervisor of the minor), three courses from a list of approved classes, and either a Service Learning, Study Abroad, Internship or Independent Study (that should earn a minimum of three credits).

BA-International Studies Major
  Latin American Studies Track
  

Summary of the Changes:
The interdisciplinary International Studies major program of study is being changed:

• At the request of the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, ANT 4495 Cross-Cultural Methods (3 credits) is being removed from the International Studies curriculum and replaced by core course ANT 3212 Peoples and Cultures of the World (3 credits).

• CPO 4014 Comparative Politics: Frameworks for Analysis (3 credits) is being offered as an alternative to INR 4603 International Relations: Frameworks for Analysis (3 credits). Students must take one of these two courses as their required political science core course.

• Students are being required to take an additional core course, in quantitative and/or qualitative research methods (3 credit hours). These three credits are being shifted from the major electives category, which is being reduced from 12 credits to 9 credits. International Studies majors will choose one of the following four methods courses, and the chairs of the contributing disciplines have approved this change.

  ANT 4083 Quantitative Methods in Anthropology (3 credits)
  ANT 4801 Ethnographic Methods (3 credits)
  HIS 3051 G (W) The Craft of the Historian (3 credits)
  POS 3713 Political Inquiry and Analysis (3 credits)

• INR 3XXX, International Educational Experience, a zero-credit, pass/fail course, is being introduced as a required core course to record students' completion of the required international educational experience (study abroad).

• INR 4905 Directed Independent Study (v. 1-4 credits) -- specifically in International Studies as opposed to independent study courses in the contributing disciplines -- is being created and added to all concentrations within the major electives.

• The intermediate foreign language requirement has not changed but is being presented differently, in an attempt to clarify the requirement for students. Previously, the program of study was unclear about how the 6-credit-hour requirement counts toward the major and, on an informal basis, advisors applied these 6 credits to the non-thematic/non-regional electives. We have deleted the non-thematic/non-regional electives and shifted those 6 credit hours to the intermediate language requirement, which is now clearly listed as a requisite.

• The list of major electives (divided into regional and thematic concentrations) is being updated to account for recent course additions in the contributing disciplines. Each contributing discipline's chair has approved these additions to the Latin American Studies track:

  ANT 3340 Anthropology of West Indies (3 credits)
  ECS 3403 Current Issues in the Economics of Latin America (3 credits)
  INR 4905 Directed Independent Study (1-4 credits)
  LAH 3932 Selected Topics: Latin American History (3 credits)
  LAS 4932 Seminar: Latin American History (3 credits)
  LAS 3280 Issues in Modern Brazilian Culture (3 credits)
  LAS 3930 Cultures of Latin America (3 credits)
  SPN 3501 Hispanic Culture (3 credits)

• One course was deleted from the major electives listing for Latin American Studies because it was deleted from the catalog by its contributing discipline: LAS 3005 Latin American Culture
(3 credits). (View the program of study)

BA- Music Major Jazz Studies Track

Summary of the Changes:
  The purpose of this request is to include four new courses in Applied Jazz Saxophone (one for each level of study) to fulfill applied music credit requirements for jazz studies majors whose primary instrument is saxophone. In the program of study this is an addition to the acceptable Applied Musics category options, not a replacement of any Applied Musics course. The proposed new courses provide specific content in the Jazz Studies curriculum and this change would only affect the Jazz Studies Degree.

  MVJ 1XXX Applied Jazz Saxophone 1 (2 credits)

 Political Science Fast Track MPA
Summary of the Changes:
  The Political Science Fast Track concentration as listed in the current catalog is not in concurrence with the other listed political science concentrations in the undergraduate major. In addition, the specific requirements of the Fast Track option are not made clear. This proposed change clarifies the requirements for admission into the MPA program in Fast Track status, and updates the requirements for the Fast Track concentration of the Political Science major.

  Change to wording of catalog statement concerning Fast Track requirement as follows:

"A Fast Track leading to entry into the Public Administration (MPA) degree is available to UNF Political Science majors. Students who successfully complete the Fast Track requirements, and who meet the admission requirements for the MPA program, will be able to complete the MPA degree with 33 hours of credit rather than the 42 hours otherwise required.

"Undergraduate Fast Track requirements are that a student: (1) must be a UNF undergraduate Political Science major, (2) must declare an intent to exercise the Fast Track option prior to their senior year; (3) must have an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher in the last 60 hours of undergraduate course work; (4) must make a grade of at least B or higher in PAD 4003 (taken as part of the Fast Track Concentration core requirements), (5) must complete the Political Science Fast Track Concentration minor requirements, and (6) must have a B average or above for the five courses required in the Fast Track Concentration minor. All six of these conditions must be met in full."

"If the undergraduate requirements stated above are met, Fast Track students may continue into the MPA program, provided they apply for the program and meet the minimum Graduate Record Exam (GRE) requirements of the program for unconditional admission. Fast Track students who enter the MPA program in conditional status are not eligible for the 33-hour version of the program. MPA students who meet both Fast Track undergraduate and unconditional graduate admission requirements may omit PAD 6060 and two MPA program electives from their graduate program of study. The remaining MPA core courses and electives constitute the 33-hour program. Please see the MPA Director for further information on the Fast Track option."

Change to major requirements for Political Science Fast Track concentration Program of Study (Attachment 1):

  Replace comparative politics/ international relations core requirements by removing CPO 3123 Pol/Soc Brit & Irl (3 hrs), CPO 4034 Third World Politics (3 hrs), CPO 4930 Topics: Comprtve Pol (3 hrs), INR 3016 Global Iss Cont Pol (3 hrs), and INR 4334 Am Def Mass Destruct (3 hrs) and replacing with CPO 4014 Framewk: Analy Comp (3 hrs), INR 4603 Framewk: Analy Int R (3 hrs) and INR 4703 Intl Political Econ (3 hrs). This will bring the 18 semester hours of core requirements for the Fast Track concentration into alignment with the 18 semester hours of core requirements for all other Political Science major concentrations.

  Remove the following courses from the Program of Study of Fast Track Major Electives: CPO 3123 Pol/Soc Brit & Irl (3 hrs) ,CPO 3151 Pols & Soc in France (3 hrs), CPO 3213 Pols/Soc in Sub-Saharan Africa (3 hrs), CPO 4034, Third World Politics (3 hrs) CPO 4930 Topics: Comprtve Pol (3 hrs), INR 3016 Global Iss Cont Pol (3 hrs), PAD 4027 Issues Public Mgmt (3 hrs), POS 4167 Urban Policy/Plan (3 hrs).
