General Education Humanities
A Requirement

Summary of the Changes:
The History Department is creating a two semester sequence in World History, World History I (WOH 1XXX), 3 credits, and World History II (WOH 1XXX), 3 credits. The first course will cover early World History; the second will cover modern World History. APC 1 forms for these courses are being submitted along with this APC3 form.
We request that either of the two new courses in the World History sequence be allowed to count in fulfillment of the Humanities A requirement of the General Education curriculum (3 credits). At the same time, we request that EUH 1000, Western Civilization to 1648, and EUH 1001, Western Civilization from 1648 to the present, be removed from the General Education Humanities A requirement, effective in the fall of 2011.
Rationale: There has been a nationwide trend, at both the secondary and collegiate level, away from the teaching of Western Civilization and towards the teaching of World History as the introductory course in history. At UNF, as our student body has grown and become more diverse in its background, we must present students with a broader historical context for their understanding of their own and their society's heritage. The History Department feels that a World History sequence will better prepare undergraduates for their roles in an increasingly globalized society. In addition, the sequence better prepares our students for the more global and diverse courses offered at the upper division in the History Department. The proposed change has been approved by the General Education Council.
The existing courses EUH 1000 and 1001 will not be removed from the catalogue, and will continue to be taught on an occasional basis, but will not fulfill the General Education requirement.

Change 2:
The Department of Music is requesting to add 3 credits of Advanced Music Theory courses to both the fall and spring semesters of the junior year in the Piano Performance program of study.  These courses are required for all Bachelor of Music in Performance degree tracks and were inadvertently omitted from the current build of this degree.  This change will add 6 credit hours to the degree.
Add to Fall and Spring semester of Junior Year:
Select 1 Advanced Music Theory:
MUT 4626 20th Century Music Theory; MUT 4311 Orchestration; MUT 4421 18th Century Counterpoint
Change 3:
The Department of Music is requesting to remove four semesters of MUN 3453 'Piano Ensemble' (1 credit hour each) from the Piano Performance program of study.  Piano performance majors are required to take two semesters of this course.  We are requesting that this course be removed from the sophomore and senior years, fall and spring, in the program of study.  It will remain in the junior year.  This change will remove 4 credit hours from the degree.
Change 4:
The Department of Music is requesting to change the number of credit hours of 'Free Electives' (3000/4000 level) in the Piano Performance degree.  In the fall semester of the senior year, add 2 credits of free elective and reduce the 6 credit hours to 3 for the spring semester of the senior year.  This change will remove 1 credit hour from the degree.
Change 5:  Add Large Ensemble requirement (1 credit each) to the fall and spring semesters of the junior and senior year in this degree.  This is a requirement for this degree.  The change adds 4 credit hours to the degree.
*Rationale: To accommodate the addition of the course 'World Music' to music degree tracks, mandated by the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM), the Department of Music is in the process of adjusting credit hours to return music degrees to the 120 credit-hour limit.  The changes listed above adjust this degree track to the proper number of credit hours and appropriate curriculum.
These changes bring the BM Piano Performance degree to 120 credit hours.

BS – Physics Major
Materials Sciences Track

Summary of the Changes:
The Department of Physics seeks to add to its current selection of concentrations within the BS Physics program a new concentration called Materials Science. The track requires 120 SH and provides students with a thorough and comprehensive preparation for future graduate study in Materials Science programs as well as a strong foundation to excel as professionals in the dynamic environment of cutting-edge-technology industries. The vital need for today's industries to evolve rapidly with current technologies as well as fashion tomorrow's technologies requires professionals with a comprehensive set of skills based on a fundamental understanding of the governing principles in Physics, Chemistry, and Engineering as well as a  proficiency to manipulate these principles to solve new problems in the design of new materials.  
This interdisciplinary concentration builds on the strong foundation of core physics coursework by incorporating additional coursework in chemistry and materials engineering. Students who complete this concentration successfully will be competitive for entering future graduate study in Physics or Materials Science programs in addition to being suited as professionals at the BS level. No new resources or faculty are required to implement this new concentration since the concentration simply directs students into current courses at the university.
The detailed program of study for the new Materials Science concentration is attached. Some of the highlights are below.
The students in this concentration are required to take the following additional chemistry and engineering courses:
CHM 2210      Organic Chemistry I  3
CHM 2210L   Organic Chemistry I Lab 1
CHM 2211      Organic Chemistry II  3
CHM 2211L   Organic Chemistry II Lab 1
EML 3520C    Material Science I  3
