Political Science and Public Administration – Graduate  

 

Change a degree-major-concentration of an existing program                       
Master of Public Administration - Public Administration Major National Security Concentration

Summary of the Changes:
This concentration has been in abeyance for a few years but, after consultation with the Navy War College, have decided to revise and re-introduce it.
Among changes in the language in the POS:
* We have made it clearer that this is only available to serving military officers and some senior federal officials.
* We have removed the 'Fast Track' provision, as such students will not be eligible for the NWC program.
* We have simplified the Major Requirements, and moved some of this language into a new Major Electives section.

Music – Graduate

 

Change a degree-major-concentration of an existing program                       
Master of Music - Music Performance Major Strings Concentration

Summary of the Changes:
We are requesting to change MUN 6215 Orchestra from a 2-credit to a 1-credit hour course. Due to miscommunication, the course was created as a 2-credit hour course; however, this extends the required credit hours beyond the original intent for the M.M. Music Performance; Strings degree. Reducing the credits from 2 to 1 will reduce the required credits from 40 to 36.
