Revised Course:

Lang 1062
—Reading in the American University (Change from 1 to 2 credits)

Rationale- This course was provisionally approved as a 1-credit course that was too narrowly focused and could not effectively cover and reinforce some of the most essential reading skills. Changing it to 2 credits will provide students with a broader range of skills work to be more successful in the heavy reading load they encounter at the University level in a second language.
