Narrative Summary

 

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. Use additional sheets as needed.

The changes reflect a change in faculty and an agreement that students may be better served if we can offer more courses annually, rather than every two or three years (although a few courses still can be offered only every other year).

 

 

Financial Implications

 

 

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