Chemistry – Undergraduate  

 

Add a new concentration to an existing program                   
Bachelor of Science - Chemistry Major Biochemistry Concentration  

Summary of the Changes:
The Department of Chemistry would like to establish a new BS undergraduate track in chemistry entitled “Biochemistry.” Biochemistry is the study of biological systems on a molecular level. Competency in the field of biochemistry requires an in-depth understanding of chemistry, a fundamental knowledge of biology, and the ability to recognize the interconnections between the two disciplines. This track is designed to prepare students who wish to pursue careers in biochemical and/or biomedical research including such specific areas as pharmaceutical sciences, disease diagnostics, drug development, DNA-based forensics, proteomics, and clinical chemistry. The prerequisite courses required by most chemistry graduate programs are fulfilled by this program of study.
Note: This track is designed for students interested in bio-medically related research careers. This track differs from current Chemistry degree track offerings in that students will gain a deeper and broader understanding of biochemical principles and techniques through the increased emphasis on biology and biochemistry courses. Upon completion, students will be better prepared to pursue science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers that do not fall within the traditional confines of chemistry or biology degree programs.

English – Undergraduate

 

Change a degree-major of an existing program                   
Bachelor of Arts – English Major

Summary of the Changes:
Summary: The department requests changing its major requirements for the BA in English.
Rationale: The proposed revision in the program of study, decided upon as a result of the department's most recent Program Review, will scaffold the curriculum to align with the department's three areas within the Academic Learning Compact. The proposed changes will increase the requirement for the major from 30 credit hours to 36 credit hours, which is consistent with other English majors in the SUS system. The proposed changes require students to take six credit hours of literature surveys at the 2000-level assessed for the ALC category: content, 15 credit hours at the 3000-level assessed for the ALC categories: content and communication, and 15 credit hours at the 4000-level assessed for the ALC categories: critical thinking, content, and communication. The department includes a six-credit-hour writing and methodology requirement for all English majors in these changes.
This proposed revision includes adding new courses, changing existing course numbers, titles, and descriptions, and deleting courses no longer offered by the department.

This request is to create a new advanced music theory course at the 4000 level (MUT 4xxx, "Nineteenth-Century Chromatic Harmony"), to be used as an option for music performance majors to fulfill the advanced music theory requirement.

Add a new concentration to an existing program                   
Bachelor of Music - Music Performance Major Music Technology and Production Concentration

Summary of the Changes:
This package is a request to add a concentration in Music Production and Technology to the existing B.M. Music Performance degree. The music field continues to evolve: whereas once acoustic instruments were its foundation, student knowledge of digital audio production and recording arts allow for extraordinary creativity and job marketability. Since UNF already has a recording studio as well as midi and computer lab, it is logical to offer the new concentration, providing students opportunity to enter a rapidly growing and profitable area of the music business. The new concentration will bring UNF another base of incoming freshmen that will develop both creative music production skills and hands-on, scientific knowledge of audio recording. Within the concentration, students will learn the basics of audio acoustics and equipment chains, techniques employed in the production of digital music for video game and television, and record live events that occur both on and off campus. In addition, students will also study a primary instrument and perform in large ensembles. Students will enter the workforce with a unique set of skills. No competitive program in the area offers a similar degree concentration and we expect this 120-credit hour degree will attract a healthy enrollment.

Social Welfare Minor

Summary of the Changes:
We are making two changes. First we are adding one elective course (SOW 4XXX Inside the Asylum)and one diversity course (SOW3XXX Social Work with Diverse Groups) to provide students with additional options. Both courses were created in Package 201308-26. Second we are removing one required course (SOW 3203 Social Welfare Institutions) and adding one required course (SOW 3XXX Social Welfare Policy) to distinguish the policy course required for Social Welfare students from the one required of Social Work students. The new Social Welfare Policy (SOW 3XXX) will have an analytic rather than practice focus. We will continue to offer SOW 3203 Social Welfare Institutions as part of the Social Work Program of Study. These changes do not impact the total number of hours required for the minor, which remains 15 credit hours.
