Summary of the changes:

The English Education program to meet the state's 120 credit hour mandate by eliminating two English courses (LIT 3333 Adolescent Literature and ENL 3333 Shakespeare) and one course from Anthropology (ANT 3610 Linguistic Anthropology) which has long been used as a substitute for LIN 3010 Principles of Linguistics, a course that no longer exists at UNF. I must eliminate these courses due to the requirements for specific education courses for teacher licensure. This action takes the program from 127 hours to 118 hours. The two additional hours with a two-credit-hour LAE 4941 Reading Practicum course that will enable English Education students to graduate with a state reading endorsement.
