III. Justification for Change:

By previously adding the Calc
-
based Physics and
calc II

to all of our programs
, the rigor of each
track has increased. Prior to this we had as many as three inorganic courses for the different
tracks as this is the last course they take. Since each student
now arrives in their last semester
with more
uniform background due to the
increas
ed

rigor of our degree requirements in each
track
,

i
t is now appropriate for all of our students to take the same inorganic chemistry courses.

This change will allow us to offer one inorganic lecture each semester (instead of
inorganic and
bioinorganic
) and multiple sections of the same laboratory, thereby conserving
department
resources.






Supporting Analyses of the Program


When degree or
major program requirements or both are being revised, it is an opportunity to reconsider
the relevance, effectiveness, and efficiency of the entire structure of the program. Following are some
questions designed to provoke thoughtful evaluation of a progra
m.


If a program is being substantially revised, written responses to each of these items should be
included as part of the proposal for the UPCC.


NA



If a minor change is being made to a program, writing out responses to all items is not necessary.
Ho
wever, UPCC members may ask about these issues during their evaluation of any proposal.


1.

What are the primary learning outcomes of the program?

2.

What assessment findings have led to the proposed change(s)?

3.

Evaluate the prerequisites.

Why are the specified c
ourses needed as prerequisites?

Why are there no prerequisites for some courses?

What is the desired sequence of prerequisites?

How often are the prerequisites offered?

4.

Where within the program is an introductory overview of the major?

5.

What are the
capstone experiences of the program?

6.

Where within the program are there application activities and what are the activities? (E.g., field
experiences, practicums, applied projects, undergraduate research, service learning, co
-
ops,
internships, studio work,

practical problem solving.)

7.

Where and how do the following occur in the program?

Writing, reading, critical thinking, presenting

Participative and collaborative learning

Use of information technology

Global and multicultural perspectives

8.

What are the requ
ired courses that contribute to the interdisciplinary nature of the program?





For Proposals to Change Degree or Major Program Requirements.

Complete the following sections and a Business Content Worksheet as necessary, and attach the page(s)
to the prop
osal.


A.

Does this major or degree, incorporating the changes being proposed, have “traditional business
subject” [TBS] content* delivered by faculty or programs administered by the Coles College of Business?


_____ Exempt

BBA degrees or other programs ad
ministered by the Coles College are
exempt. No further action is necessary. Attach this sheet to the
proposal.


___x__ No

No further action is necessary regarding business content. Attach this
sheet to the proposal.


_____ Yes

Please

continue with Section B.


B.

If “yes” in part A, mark the applicable item below.


_____ 1.

A Business Content Worksheet was completed for this degree/major as part of a
previous proposal to UPCC that was approved.
No changes

are being made to
the TBS

content of the degree/major as part of this proposal. In this case, no
further action is necessary regarding business content. Attach this sheet to the
proposal.


_____ 2.

A Business Content Worksheet was completed for this degree/major as part of a

previous proposal to UPCC that was approved.
This proposal includes changes
to the TBS content of the degree/major. Complete a new Business Content
Worksheet and report the results in Section C.


_____ 3.

A Business Content Worksheet has never been
completed for this degree/major
.
Complete a Business Content Worksheet and report the results in Section C.


C.

If “2” or “3” in part B, mark the applicable item below.


_____

The prescribed hours in TBS content are less than 25% of the total hours of th
e
degree/major program as proposed. Attach this sheet to the proposal.


_____

The

prescribed hours in TBS content are 25% or more of the total hours of the
degree/major program as proposed, but the necessary approvals for exceeding this
threshold have been obtained from the Dean of the Coles College of Business and the
Associate Vice P
resident for Academic Affairs. Attach documentation of the Deans’
approvals and this sheet to the proposal.



*TBS content = the following subjects
that are delivered by faculty or programs administered by the
Coles College of Business



Accounting, busin
ess law, decision sciences, finance (including insurance,
real estate, and banking), human resources, management, management information systems, management
science, marketing, operations management, organizational behavior, organizational development,
str
ategic management, supply chain management (including transportation and logistics), and technology
management. Economics is not considered a “TBS.”
