*"Present" counts are to be taken from the current 2003-2005 catalog and "Proposed" counts from copy for the new 2005-2007 catalog.  The "Net Change" may reflect changes made earlier between catalogs.

**Includes required courses from other disciplines.     ***Does not include Directed Studies or Senior Honors Projects.

 

 

If individual course changes are part of an overall plan for change within the discipline's curriculum,

please summarize the intent of the changes in the space below. 

Course and credit count reflects 1)  the addition of former topics courses, 2)  deletion of the topics umbrella courses, 3)  deletion of honors courses, and 4)  addition of Econ 4501, replacing Econ 4900.

 

Are there any financial or staffing implications of this proposal?  If so, explain.

 

None.
