History – Undergraduate Change an existing Minor Asian Studies Minor Summary of Changes:
This request is to update the Asian Studies minor to reflect changes in curriculum in recent years. This proposal provides a new description of the minor, removes non-Asian centered and non-existent courses from the minor, and updates the list of applicable courses. As Asian Studies is an interdisciplinary minor, any student in Arts & Sciences seeking the minor may be affected. Courses that should be removed with justifications: MAN 4600 Management of International Business (not Asia-centered) GEO 2420 Cultural Geography (not Asia-centered) SYP 4351 Social Movements and Change (not Asia-centered) ASH 3400 20th Century Chinese Civilization (no longer offered) ASH 3448 Hiroshima (no longer offered) ASH 3601 Chinese Philosophy (no longer offered) CPO 4930 The Pacific Rim (it is not listed in the course catalog) HIS 4936 Seminars (number has changed) Courses that should be added (and that already exist in the catalog): ASN 3106 Japanese Women ANT 4362 Peoples and Cultures in Southeast Asia ASH 3404 Modern China ASH 3402 Traditional China ASH 3401 Beyond Chairman Mao PHI 3664 Ethics East and West REL 3310 Asian Religions REL 3330 Religions of India CHI 1120 Beginning Chinese I CHI 1121 Beginning Chinese II CHI 2200 Intermediate Chinese I CHI 2201 Intermediate Chinese II (a maximum of six credits in language may be counted toward the Asian Studies minor; in addition, the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures is currently working to develop a Chinese minor) The new program of study and minor description should read: Asian Studies Minor Asian Studies is an interdisciplinary program administered by the Department of History, including courses in art, philosophy, English, anthropology, languages, comparative politics, and history. The wide selection of courses offers students the opportunity to encounter Asia on its own terms, from the perspective of its peoples. The minor enables students to tailor a course of study to their individual interests, while at once developing a broad yet comprehensive outlook on Asian society. Students who pursue a minor field in Asian Studies will be required to take ASN 2003 Introduction to Asia (or its equivalent) and 12 additional credit hours. Minor Requirements (15 semester hours overall) -A minimum of 6 semester hours must be taken at UNF. -No more than six semester hours of language credit may be counted toward the minor. -A grade of “C” is required in all minor courses. -With the approval of the Asian Studies minor advisor, independent studies and other relevant courses may be counted for credit. In some cases, the Introduction to Asia requirement may be waived. Required Course ASN 2003 Introduction to Asia Electives. Select four of the following courses: ANT 4362 Peoples and Cultures of Southeast Asia ASH 3337 Gandhi/Modern India ASH 3401 Beyond Chairman Mao ASH 3402 Traditional China ASH 3404 Modern China ASH 3440 Japanese Civilization ASH 3620 Asian Art/Culture ASH 4934 Seminar: Asian History ASN 3106 Japanese Women CHI 1120 Beginning Chinese I CHI 1121 Beginning Chinese II CHI 2200 Intermediate Chinese I CHI 2201 Intermediate Chinese II JPN 1120 Beginning Japanese I JPN 1121 Beginning Japanese II LIT 3193 Literature of the East PHI 3664 Ethics East and West PHH 3820 Chinese Philosophy PHH 3811 Philosophy of Zen Buddhism PHH 3860 The Japanese Mind REL 3310 Asian Religions REL 3330 Religions in India (Click here to view the Program of study)

The course explores differentiation rules for algebraic, trigonometric, exponential and logarithmic functions. The course discusses applications of differential calculus, such as related rates problems, curve sketching, and optimization. The course also introduces students to definite and indefinite integrals and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. (This course cannot be used to satisfy upper-level degree requirements by mathematics, statistics or natural science majors. Students completing this course may not enroll in MAC 2233.)
