Log Number: 201808-3

Childhood Education, Literacy, & TESOL -Graduate

 

Log Number: 201801-80

Exceptional, Deaf, & Interpreter Education-Graduate

 

Change a degree-major-concentration of an existing program

Master of Science - ASL/English Interpreting Major

Concentration: Interpreting Pedagogy

 

Summary of changes:

Remove INT6806 Interpreter-Deaf Community Alliance (3 Credits) from the Program of Study. Course content can be distributed within existing courses, thus reducing the total number of program hours to 30. The program is attempting to maintain a standard 30-credit-hour program across its MS: ASL/English Interpreting degree concentrations. Alliance-building has become an integral component of each course within the program of study, and there is no longer a need for a separate course. Additionally, streamlining the curriculum in this online program makes it more competitive to prospective graduate students. This request seeks to remove INT 6806 from the POS, but it does not seek purging the course altogether.

Terminate a degree-major-concentration of an existing program

Master of Education - Educational Leadership Major

 

Summary of changes:

This action is to terminate the track in Higher Education Administration (EDL8) within the M.Ed. in Educational Leadership program. This action is being taken as this track has been replaced by the new M.S. in Higher Education Administration. The new degree will be in the 2018-19 Catalog. However, since January of 2018 admission to this track has been closed and all new HEA students are admitted to the M.S. Therefore no new students will ever be admitted to this M.Ed. track and its continued presence in the catalog is confusing to potential applicants. Additionally, this represents the completion of one rationale for the creation of the new program, which was to separate HEA from the predominately K12 M.Ed. in EDL degree for both assessment and accreditation reasons. When the M.S. in HEA was first planned it was always intended te replace this concentration and to terminate the concentration once the M.S. was active.

 

This termination will not affect other programs or units at UNF because the concentration is already permanently closed to new students and the approved M.S. incorporates most of this concentration's courses.
