CHANGES IN THE PRESCRIBED WORK FOR THE BACHELOR OF JOURNALISM, AND THE BACHELOR OF SCIENCE DEGREES IN ADVERTISING, COMMUNICATION SCIENCES AND DISORDERS, PUBLIC RELATIONS, AND RADIO-TELEVISION-FILM IN THE COLLEGE OF COMMUNICATION CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 1998-2000

 

On page 69, 71, 75, and 77, in the College of Communication chapter of The Undergraduate Catalog, 1998-2000, make the following changes to the subsection "PRESCRIBED WORK," in sections "BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN ADVERTISING," "BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN COMMUNICATION SCIENCES AND DISORDERS," "BACHELOR OF JOURNALISM," "BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN PUBLIC RELATIONS," and "BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN RADIO-TELEVISION-FILM":

8.
Nine semester hours of natural sciences, of which six hours (and no more than six) must be taken in one field of study. Courses must be chosen from the following fields: astronomy, biology, [botany,] chemistry, computer sciences, geological sciences, marine science, [microbiology,] physical science, and physics [, and zoology]. [Students may fulfill this requirement by completing nine hours of coursework in the fields that are part of the Division of Biological Sciences–biology, botany, microbiology, and zoology; no more than six hours may be in a single field.] For this requirement a student may take three hours of mathematics beyond those used to fulfill requirement 7.

Rationale:
The reorganization of the life sciences resulted in combining all existing botany, microbiology, zoology, and biology courses into one course inventory consisting of only biology courses.
