Chemistry - Undergraduate

 

Change a degree-major of an existing program

Bachelor of Science - Chemistry Major

 

Summary of the Changes:

This is a request to create a category within the Major Electives (ME) of the B.S. in Chemistry, to require additional laboratory hours. This category will include laboratory courses currently on our list 
of ME, and students will be required to select 2 hours from the list. The justification for this is that the faculty of the department wish to add more laboratory time to the curriculum. This change does not affect total hours in the degree or in the ME. 
The laboratory courses in the new category of ME are BCH 4033L (Biochemistry Lab, 1 cr), CHS 4615L (Environmental Chemistry Lab, 1 cr), and CHM 4910 (Chemical Research, variable credit). 
Also, the course numbers for CHS 4610 and 4610L are changed to 4615 and 4615L due to a SUS-system-wide course number change.

English - Undergraduate


Change a degree-major of an existing program

Associate in Arts - Undeclared Major


Summary of the Changes:

We propose the following changes:

1. Change the title of ENC 1101 (GW) from "College Writing" to "Introduction to Rhetoric and Writing." 
2. Add ENC 1xxx, (GW)"Introduction to Rhetoric and Narrative" to composition requirement in place of LIT 2000, "Introduction to Literature." 
3. Add the asterisked note to ENC 1101 and ENC 1xxx, stating: "ENC 1101 and ENC 1xxx are prerequisites for all other writing courses. ENC 1101 and ENC 1xxx may be taken in any order or at the same time." 
4. Move LIT 2000, "Introduction to Literature," from the "Composition" area to the "Non-Applied Fine Arts" area. 
5. Add ENC 3250, "Professional Communications," to the "Composition" area as one of the menu of writing courses that students may select to complete the last three of the required nine credit hours of composition. 
6. Remove the doubly asterisked note, "LIT 2000 is an additional prerequisite for CRW 2100, CRW 2300, CRW 2400, CRW 2600 & CRW 2930." 
We propose these changes in order to bring our general education writing curriculum into alignment with state requirements.

Change an existing course G(W) College Writing ENC Freshman (1xxx) 101
We wish to change the title of ENC 1101 from "College Writing" to "Introduction to Rhetoric and Writing." The title more accurately specifies what we mean by "college writing" and therefore more accurately identifies the curricular focus of the course in relation to the goals and outcomes of our general education writing sequence.

Change an existing course G(W)Introduction to Literature LIT Sophomore (2xxx) 000
We propose to remove GW designation from LIT 2000 and move LIT 2000 to "Non-Applied Fine Arts" area.

Change an existing course G(W) Professional Communication ENC Junior (3xxx) 250
The General Education Council has approved offering ENC 3250, "Professional Communications," for general education credit. The Department of English proposes to change the title from a fixed title to a variable title in order to offer the course with variable content--that is, content may be discipline-specific.

Add a new course Introduction to Rhetoric and Narrative (3 crs) ENC Freshman (1xxx) XXX

Prerequisites:    
None
Co-requisites:    
None

Course Description:

This course introduces students to basic rhetorical features of a range of texts in different genres, with a focus on the elements of narrative. Students will learn how to read critically in preparation for writing critically on the course texts.

Change an existing course Directed Indep Stdy in Spanish SPN Senior (4xxx) 905

We would like to make several changes to the description: 
1) Change the number of credits from "3-6" to "1-3"; 
2) Change the language specifying the prerequisites from "a minimum of two, 3000-level courses in Spanish" to "a minimum of five, 3000- or 4000-level courses in Spanish"; 
3) Change the phrase "fo a specific topic in a Spanish literary or linguistic area" to "of a specific literary, linguistic or cultural topic related to the Spanish-speaking world"; and 
4) Delete the sentence "The course may be repeated for a maximum of 6 credits". 
Justification: By increasing the number of prerequisite 3000-level (or 4000-level) courses to 5, we will make it necessary for a student to have a stronger background before undertaking an independent study; under the current language, a student could request an independent study after completing only Spanish Conversation and Spanish Composition, which we feel is inadequate. The phrase "of a specific literary, linguistic or cultural topic related to the Spanish-speaking world" corrects the typographical error ("fo") in the current description, and outlines more accurately the possible range of options (culture was previously omitted, and "Spanish literary or linguistic area" is too restrictive, as it appears to leave out the Americas). 
I have provided the entire revised description in the corresponding field below.
New Course Description:
SPN4905: Directed Independent Study in Spanish. v. 1-3. Prerequisite: Student must have successfully completed a minimum of five, 3000- or 4000-level courses in Spanish prior to requesting an independent study. This course provides a directed, individual study of a specific literary, linguistic or cultural topic related to the Spanish-speaking world. Departmental approval is required. This course is not open to Minors in Spanish.

Add a new course Communication and Communities for Heritage Speakers of Spanish (3 crs) SPN Junior (3xxx) XXX

Prerequisites:    
None
Co-requisites:    
None

Course Description:

Prerequisite: Advanced proficiency as demonstrated through placement test results or by permission of instructor and/or department chair. This course emphasizes the development of techniques for conversation and public speaking in Spanish. Students will examine the implications of bilingual and bicultural identities and will study regional variations of Spanish. A variety of materials will be used as starting points for discussions, including articles, short stories, film, and music. The course incorporates service learning components, which will allow students the opportunity to conduct projects with local Spanish-speaking communities and organizations.

Change a degree-major of an existing program

Bachelor of Arts - Spanish Major

 

Summary of the Changes:

We propose to change the Major in Spanish by deleting the titles of several obsolete electives (which we are deleting as part of this package), adding the title of one new elective (see package 201108-87), and adding language allowing students to include one course taught in English among their Major Electives. These modifications do not change the number of hours required for the degree (120 hours), for the Major Requirements (15 hours) or for the Major Electives (15 hours).

1. From the first list of electives ("SELECT ONE FROM THE FOLLOWING") under "Major Requirements," we are removing the following course titles from the program of study: 
SPN 3500 Peoples & Cultures of Spain; 
LAS 3020 Peoples & Cultures of the Caribbean; 
LAS 3310 Peoples & Cultures of Mexico; 
LAS 3031 Peoples & Cultures of the Southern Cone; 
LAS 3930 Cultures of Latin America; and 
ANT 4331 People of the Andes. 
These are courses taught in English that we do not want listed in this section. The titles of several of these courses have been moved to a new paragraph, explained in #4 below. (Please note: we are not eliminating any of these courses, but merely changing the way they appear in the degree requirements). 
2. From the second list of electives ("SELECT ONE FROM THE FOLLOWING") under "Major Requirements," we are deleting the following course titles: 
SPN 4930 Seminar; 
SPW 4223 Hispanic Genres; 
SPW 4400 Periods of Spanish Literature; and 
SPW 4193 Periods of Latin American Literature. 
These are obsolete literature courses that we no longer teach, and which we are deleting as part of this package. 
3. We are adding to the list in #2 above (the second of the two lists of electives) the number and title of the new SPW4XXX Advanced Studies in Hispanic Literature, which we are creating in a separate package 
(log #201108-101). 
4. Following the section titled "Major Electives (15 credits)," we are adding the following: 
Students may count among their electives up to one of the following courses taught in English: 
LAS 3020 Peoples & Cultures of the Caribbean; 
LAS 3031 Peoples & Cultures of the Southern Cone; 
LAS 3930 Cultures of Latin America; and 
SPN 3500 Peoples & Cultures of Spain. 
Other courses in English may be counted only by permission of the chair of Languages, Literatures and Cultures.

Terminate an existing course Seminar SPN Senior (4xxx) 930
This course designation has not been used in several years, and we don't foresee it being needed in the future. The existing SPN4541 Advanced Studies in Hispanic Culture and the new SPW4XXX Advanced Studies in Hispanic Literature (proposed as part of this package) make SPN4930 unnecessary.

Terminate an existing course Hispanic Genres SPW Senior (4xxx) 223
This course designation has not been used in several years, and we don't foresee it being needed in the future. The existing SPN4541 Advanced Studies in Hispanic Culture and the new SPW4XXX Advanced Studies in Hispanic Literature (proposed as part of this package) make SPW4223 unnecessary.

This course designation has not been used in several years, and we don't foresee it being needed in the future. The existing SPN4541 Advanced Studies in Hispanic Culture and the new SPW4XXX Advanced Studies in Hispanic Literature (proposed as part of this package) make SPW4400 unnecessary.

Change an existing minor

Spanish Minor


Summary of the Changes:

We are proposing the changes enumerated below. 
• We are re-stating the total number of hours as 15, since the 23 hours currently indicated in the first line of the current description include beginning Spanish I & II, which are not part of the minor. (Note: this does not change the number of hours required for the minor, but rather corrects an inconsistency in the current description.) 
• For the sake of clarity, we are re-wording, but not changing, the prerequisites. 
• The statement "Select 5 Spanish courses (3000/4000)" is being removed, as it is inaccurate. Only 3 3000-/4000- level courses are required to meet the 15-hour total, after the completion of Intermediate Spanish I & II. (As before, this does not change the number of hours required for the minor, but rather corrects an inconsistency in the current description.) 
• In the new first sentence, we are now specifying that the 3 3000-/4000- level courses must carry SPN or SPW prefixes. Because only three upper-level courses are required for the completion of the minor, we believe all three should be taken in the target language. 
• In conjunction with the previous point, we are deleting the list of prefixes "SPN SPT SPW FOL FOT LAS" and the sentence "*Note: One course may be in English." 
• We are adding the sentence "A minimum of 3 courses must be completed at UNF," which reflects a long-standing departmental policy. 
• We are changing "Heritage speakers" to "Native/Heritage speakers".

We propose to change the description and the prerequisite of the course STA4664 because we would like to provide more options in prerequisite courses to increase enrollment. We change the course description to better reflect the nature of the course. This does not cause any change in any program of study. 
Proposed Prerequisite Courses: STA 2014 or STA 2023 or STA 3032 or STA 4321.
New Course Description:
This course provides an introduction to the methods of statistical quality control. Topics covered include control charts, acceptance sampling, and experimental design.

Change an existing course Probability Models STA Senior (4xxx) 672

We wish to change the course description in the catalog. The current description says that the course will prepare students to take the Society of Actuaries/Casualty Actuarial Society Exam M. However, the societies have revised the preliminary examinations, and shifted some topics. Therefore, we want to change the description to refer to the Preliminary Examinations, in general, rather than a specifically named examination.
New Course Description:
Topics will emphasize applications to actuarial science and include: frequency and severity distributions, exponential distributions and Poisson processes, aggregate loss models, Markov chain models, Brownian motion. This course is recommended for students preparing to take the Society of Actuaries/Casualty Actuarial Society Preliminary Examinations.

Change a degree-major of an existing program

Bachelor of Science - Mathematics Major

 

Summary of the Changes:

This request is to modify the B.S. in Mathematics - Discrete Analysis concentration. We would like to change the number of credits for Capstone Experience from 2 to 3. We would like to change the number of credits for Major Electives from 9 to 6. We would like to change the number of credits pertaining to Free Electives from 1 to 3. The proposed modifications will not change the total credit hour requirement for this degree program (120 credit hours). 
The increase in the number of credits pertaining to Capstone Experience comes from the change (from 2 to 3 credits) in Capstone Experience in Mathematics (MAS 4932), for which there is a separate request in place. The changes in credits pertaining to Major Requirements and Free Electives ensure that total credit hour requirement for this track remains 120 credit hours.

Course Description:

Epistemology is the study of knowledge and justified belief. In this course we will critically examine numerous accounts of the nature and sources of knowledge and justified belief. In addition, we will look at epistemological puzzles concerning skepticism, the problem of induction, epistemic relativism, and the epistemic significance of disagreement. The philosophical questions to be discussed include: What is knowledge? Can we know anything worthwhile? Given that we do know things, how do we know them? Under what conditions is a belief rational? Is it rational to believe controversial propositions? Is there more than one standard of rationality? 

Add a new course Introduction to Metaphysics (3 crs) PHI Junior (3xxx) XXX

Prerequisites:    
None
Co-requisites:

Course Description:
This course will be a topical introduction to central themes in metaphysics - a branch of philosophy that tries to answer the fundamental questions about the nature of reality. In the course we will carefully consider accounts of causation, the relation of freedom and determinism, laws of nature, personal identity, mental states, time, material objects, and properties. The philosophical questions to be discussed include: What makes it the case that one event causes another event? Is free will compatible with determinism? What are material objects? Given that material objects exist, do such things as properties exist? What makes it the case that a person may exist at two different times?

Epistemology and metaphysics are core disciplinary areas, and most philosophy departments have a core requirement in epistemology and/or metaphysics. This added requirement will increase the major requirements from 15 to 18 hours and decrease the free electives from 7 to 4 hours.

Summary of the Changes:

We seek to introduce a new one credit hour course to the physics major entitled, PHY 1090 Introduction to Physics for New Physics Majors. This course should help recruit and retain physics majors by better acclimating new physics majors to the department and major. This course will increase by one credit hour the major requirements and correspondingly decrease the free electives for each of the eight tracks (concentrations) in the physics major.
