(Music & Philosophy & Religious Studies): New Courses, Courses Changes, & Change of Programs of Study (2 packages)

11/06/14: Passed

11/13/14: Approved

Log Number: 201405-23

Music - Graduate

 

Change a degree-major-concentration of an existing program

Master of Music- Music Performance Major Jazz Studies Concentration

 

Summary of the Changes:

We are requesting to add MUS 6XXX Directed Individual Studies to the M.M. Music Performance: Jazz Studies concentration. This program of study that included this course and all of the courses for the degree was approved in 2013-2014; however, MUS 6XXX Individual Studies was omitted from package. This is simply a request to create the missing course and to change the name of the course in the program of study from Independent Study to Directed Individual Studies.

Philosophy & Religious Studies - Graduate

 

Change an existing course

19th Century Philosophy

PHH

Graduate (5xxx)

505

We seek to change the title of PHH5505 from "19th Century Philosophy" to "Kant to Nietzsche." This change more accurately reflects the course content and is more descriptive for students.  This course represents a co-listed graduate version of PHH3500, for which the same name change is also being requested. The request is for a simple title change from 19th Century Philosophy to Kant to Nietzsche. The course content and purpose remains the same: to introduce to students one of the most fertile periods of philosophy. The new title would invoke well-known names of major figures to better anchor that course in the philosophy student’s mind. It connects the course to Modern Philosophy (which goes from Descartes to Kant), and bridges the connection to existentialism which begins with Nietzsche. We believe the new title better reflects the content and better attracts our students.
