DOCUMENTS OF THE GENERAL FACULTY


CHANGES IN THE COLLEGE OF PHARMACY CHAPTER OFTHE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 1998-2000



Dean Steven Leslie of the College of Pharmacy filed with the Secretary of the Faculty Council the proposal below for changes to the College of Pharmacy chapter in The Undergraduate Catalog, 1998-2000. The edited proposal was received from the Office of Official Publications on April 25, 2000. The secretary has classified this proposal as legislation of exclusive application and primary interest to a single college or school.

If no objection is filed with the Office of the General Faculty by the date specified below, the legislation will be held to have been approved by the Faculty Council. If objection is filed within the prescribed period, the legislation will be presented to the Faculty Council at its next meeting. The objection, with reasons, must be signed by a member of the Faculty Council.

To be counted, a protest must be received in the Office of the General Faculty by May 5, 2000.

CHANGES IN THE COLLEGE OF PHARMACY CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 1998-2000


On page 471, of The Undergraduate Catalog, 1998-2000, in the section "ADMISSION AND REGISTRATION," subsection "ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS," make the following changes:

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

[No change to 1-3, or 5-6.]

1.
The applicant should have completed at least [sixty] sixty-three semester hours, and must have completed the following [forty-two] forty-five:
a. [Six] Nine hours of general biology, including cellular and molecular biology, [and] structure and function of organisms, and genetics.



Rationale:
Changes in the catalog for the College of Natural Sciences includes a new genetics prerequisite for the microbiology courses our pre-pharmacy students are required to complete. We therefore have added the three hours of genetics.




On page 474, of The Undergraduate Catalog, 1998-2000, in the section "ACADEMIC POLICIES AND PROCEDURES," subsection "COURSE LOAD AND SEQUENCE OF WORK," make the following changes:


COURSE LOAD AND SEQUENCE OF WORK

4.
Students are expected to take a minimum course load of twelve semester hours during any long-session semester or at least six semester hours during the summer session. A student on academic probation must take at least twelve semester hours during any long-session semester.



Rationale:
We do have required coursework in selected summer sessions, and if students were to take only the minimum required for that semester it would be six hours (a six-hour internship course).


On page 477, of The Undergraduate Catalog, 1998-2000, in the section "DEGREES," subsection "PRESCRIBED WORK," make the following changes:


PRESCRIBED WORK

[To qualify for the Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy degree, a student must complete 152 semester hours, consisting of basic education requirements, professional electives, and required preprofessional and professional coursework.] Students who enter the Doctor of Pharmacy degree program without a bachelor's degree must complete [190 semester hours] a total of 197 semester hours, consisting of basic education requirements, professional electives, and required preprofessional and professional coursework. [Those who hold a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy must complete 61 semester hours, consisting of professional electives and required professional coursework.]


Rationale:
This change is reflective of the change in credit hours associated with the seven internship courses in the final calendar year (a change in credit hours from 5 to 6 for each of seven internship courses) to more

540


accurately reflect the workload, and, at the request of the Coordinating Board, to reflect more uniformity in pharmacy programs across the state.



On page 477, of The Undergraduate Catalog, 1998-2000, in the section "DEGREES," subsection "BASIC EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS," make the following changes:


BASIC EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS

1.
Six semester hours of American history.
2.
Six semester hours of American government, including Texas government.
3.
Three semester hours of coursework in the fine arts or humanities, chosen from archaeology, architecture, art (including art history, design studio art, visual art studies), classics (including classical civilization, Greek, Latin), fine arts, humanities, music (including music, instruments, ensemble), philosophy (excluding courses in logic), or theatre and dance.
4.
Three semester hours of coursework in social and behavioral sciences, chosen from anthropology, economics, geography, linguistics, psychology, sociology, and social work.
[5.
Three semester hours of general elective of the students choice.]
[6.] 5.
[English] Rhetoric and Composition 306, English 316K, and two courses, one of which must be upper-division, certified as having a substantial writing component. This requirement is fulfilled by the completion of the specified English courses and two courses within the professional curriculum certified as having a substantial writing component. Courses that contain a substantial writing component are identified in the Course Schedule.
[7.] 6.
Students must demonstrate proficiency in a foreign language equivalent to that shown by completion of two semesters of college coursework. Credit used to establish proficiency may not be counted toward the degree. For a student admitted to the University as a freshman, this requirement is fulfilled by the completion of the two high school units in a single foreign language that are required for admission; a student admitted with a deficiency in foreign language must remove it as specified in General Information.



Rationale:
This reduction of three hours was necessary to accommodate the addition of genetics to the pre-pharmacy sequence as described above. Note that, while we had included this statement in our previous catalog, there is no such requirement associated with the BER. Thus, the full BER is still in place in our catalog.

Rationale:
Changes in the first and second preprofessional (prepharmacy) years reflect the changes in the College of Natural Sciences chapter of The Undergraduate Catalog to (1) renumber the basic biology courses, and (2) to require genetics as a prerequisite for the microbiology courses. Changes in the first professional year simply represent a reorganization of course content to split out one hour of medicinal chemistry content in PHR 442C to create 342C and 143P. Likewise, the one hour of pharmacology content in 452C was split out to create 352C and 153M. Changes in the second professional year involve combining the course content of pharmacotherapeutics IIB and IIC to a single course based on content. Changes in the third professional year include deletion of coursework associated with the bachelor of science degree (which has been discontinued). One semester credit hour per internship course was added to more accurately reflect the workload, and, at the request of the Coordinating Board, to reflect more uniformity in pharmacy programs across the state.
