Communication-Undergraduate

 

Add a new concentration to an existing program

Bachelor of Science - Communication Major

Concentration: Digital Video Production

 

Summary of the changes:

The B.S. in Communication's major concentration in "Multimedia Journalism and Production" is requesting to split into two major concentrations: "Multimedia Journalism" and "Digital Video Production." The current APC package deals with Digital Video Production. Another APC package (201708-43) changes the current concentration from "Multimedia Journalism and Production" to "Multimedia Journalism concentration."

 

The Department of Communication is requesting to create the Digital Video Production major concentration within the B.S. in Communication major and expand the relevant course offerings accordingly. Upon completing the suggested Program of Study, students will demonstrate clear proficiency with all fundamental aspects of video production. As part of the creation the new concentration the following six new courses will be created:

 

RTV 3xxx Digital Video Editing (3 credits)

RTV 4xxx Lighting for Production (3 credits)

RTV 4xxx Documentary Fundamentals (3 credits)

RTV 4xxx Digital Video Effects (3 credits)

RTV 4xxx Narrative Production (3 credits)

RTV 4xxx Corporate Production (3 credits)

 

Also, the following five courses will be removed from what was previously the Multimedia Journalism and Production concentration:

ENC 3250 Professional Communication (3 credits)

CRW 3610 Screenwriting Workshop (3 credits)

FIL3363 Documentary Production (3 credits)

FIL4363 Advanced Documentary Production (3 credits)

MUM 3701 The Music Business (3 credits)

 

No new resources will be required and the concentration will not exceed 120 hours required to graduate. There are enough existing faculty and students to accommodate the Digital Video Production major concentration.

 

Consumer and professional demand for high quality video content has been rising for years, which makes it desirable for students to be able to competently produce professional video for diverse subject areas.

Change a degree-major of an existing program

Bachelor of Arts - Anthropology Major

 

Summary of the changes:

We are revising the Anthropology BA Program of Study. The required credit hours remain the same, but we have added ANT 3212 Peoples and Cultures as the suggested prerequisites for entering the major. We have removed mention of the semesters in which the required core courses are offered since scheduling is often fluid and the information is available from the COAS advisors. To make the process of adding and removing courses simpler, we are eliminating the extended list of electives in the POS and referring students to the UNF Catalog. We have also removed Russian and Japanese from the list of suggested languages, since these are no longer offered.
