Childhood Education - Undergraduate

Add a new minor

Minor in Early Childhood


Summary of the Changes:

A minor in the early childhood education will be offered to students who are interested in working in the field of early childhood (children ages 0-8). Currently those interested in this field have available to them a teacher preparation program (B.A.E. in Prekindergarten/Primary Education). However the field of early childhood attracts a larger population than those interested in teaching.

Exceptional Student & Deaf Education - Undergraduate


Change a degree-major of an existing program

Bachelor of Science - Sign Language Interpreting


Summary of the Changes:

Change Major Name to be the same as the Program of Study: ASL/English Interpreting. This revised Program of Study reflects current course numbers, deletion of one course, and change in course hours for two courses. Total program hours are unchanged. This package is a result of discussion and request by the APC Committee on 10.27.11 regarding Log#201108-0 to change three 2-credit Service Learning courses to two 3-credit courses. The rationale for this change is based on the work load of community based learning courses for which 3 credit hours are more fitting. The changed courses are INT 3950, Service- Learning with Deaf Children and INT 3951, Service-Learning with the Deaf Community. The deleted course is EEX 3XXX Service-Learning in Interpreting, which has never been offered since the program began in 2007.
