Special Topics in Journalism

JOU

Senior (4xxx)

930

In 2012, MMC 4500-History of Mass Communication replaced JOU 3204-Principles of Journalism as the required first course in the Multimedia Journalism and Production track of the Communication major. As a result, JOU 3204-Principles of Journalism is not being taught. MMC 4500-History of Mass Communication is now the course that should be the prerequisite for JOU4930: Special Topics in Journalism. We are also updating the learning outcomes and the course description.

New Course Description:

JOU4930: Special Topics in Journalism
Prerequisites: MMC 3105, MMC 4500. This course will explore important issues pertaining to the theory, research, and practice of journalism in a seminar format. Issues will vary from semester to semester. The course may be repeated up to a total of 6 credits.

Communication- Undergraduate


Change a degree-major-concentration of an existing program                      
Bachelor of Science- Communication Major and Advertising Concentration

Summary of the Changes:
ADV3XXX Integrated Marketing Communication will be created and added to prerequisites to ADV3008 Principles of Advertising to better prepare Advertising students for ADV3008 Principles of Advertising. Currently, MMC1004 Media Literacy, MMC3105 Advanced Writing for the Media, and MAR3203 Principles of Marketing are the prerequisites to ADV3008 Principles of Advertising. This new course will give students more options to choose either ADV3XXX Integrated Marketing Communication or MAR3023 Principles of Marketing for prerequisites to ADV3008 Principles of Advertising. In addition, ECO2013 Principles of Macroeconomics and ECO2023 Principles of Microeconomics will be removed from the foundation courses. By adding this course as a viable option, students who did not take Micro and Macro Economics as part of their GEN ED requirements, will not be delayed in entering our program. Accordingly, the required credit hours for the foundation courses will be changed from 18 credit hours into 12 credits. The total credit hours for advertising concentration will not be changed.

Sociology, Anthropology, and Social Work – Undergraduate


Change a degree-major-concentration of an existing program                      
Bachelor of Arts - Sociology Major

Summary of the Changes:
The proposed change has two parts. First, we will expand students' options for completing their research methods requirement in the general sociology concentration of the sociology major. Students are currently required to complete a fundamental methods course (SYA3300, Logic of Inquiry) as well as two advanced methods courses (SYA3310, Qualitative Research Methods, and SYA3450C, Social Science Data Analysis). We will retain the fundamental methods course, and will provide students with greater flexibility by having them choose two advanced methods courses from a list of three: SYA3310, Qualitative Research Methods; SYA3450C, Social Science Data Analysis; and SYA4654, Evaluation Research/Program Analysis (this course is currently offered as an elective in the program). Students may take a third advanced methods course as an elective. Second, we are changing one existing elective course to update the course title and description. We are proposing to change the title of SYD3700 from Racial and Cultural Minorities to Racial and Ethnic Minorities, and updating the description to reflect current course content. These changes do not affect the total credit hours required for the degree program.

Change an existing course

(CD) Racial/Culture Minorities

SYD

Junior (3xxx)

700

The current course title and description are outdated and no longer accurately reflect the course content. The (CD) Racial and Ethnic Minorities proposed change will adjust the catalog language to better fit the course as it is currently taught.

New Course Description:
This is an upper-level survey course provides a historical overview and contemporary analysis of racial/ethnic minorities in American society. Students will examine relevant sociological theories of race and ethnicity, the social construction of race in the United States, and the evolving dynamics of minority group identity and experience. Particular attention is given to the experiences of four key groups: Black/African-Americans, Native Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, and Asian-Americans.
