Associate Dean Larry Carver, for Richard W. Lariviere, filed with the secretary of the Faculty Council the following proposal to change requirements for the Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in archeological studies in the College of Liberal Arts chapter of The Undergraduate Catalog. The changes were approved by the dean and by the liberal arts faculty on a no-protest basis on November 14, 2001, and were submitted to the secretary on November 26, 2001. The secretary has classified the proposal as legislation of exclusive application and primary interest to a single college or school.

The edited proposal was received from the Office of Official Publications on February 11, 2002, and was sent to the Committee on Undergraduate Degree Program Review from the Office of the General Faculty on February 25, 2002. The committee forwarded the proposed changes to the Office of the General Faculty on March 19, 2002, recommending approval. The authority to grant final approval on behalf of the General Faculty resides with the Faculty Council.

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 March 29, 2002.

CHANGES IN REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE WITH A MAJOR IN ARCHAEOLOGICAL STUDIES IN THE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2000-2002

On page 256, in the section DEGREES, make the following changes:

Archaeological Studies

Students majoring in archaeological studies must take at least of ten courses, for a total of at least thirty semester hours. The courses for the major must be approved [in courses approved for the major] by the Archaeological Studies Committee[, including] and must include the following:

1. Archaeology 301 or Anthropology 304, and Archaeology 302 or Classical Civilization 302K.
2. Two courses approved as archaeological techniques courses.
3. At least twelve semester hours (in addition to the preceding requirements) in a subfield of archaeology, as prescribed by the Archaeological Studies Committee. Examples of the subfields are anthropological archaeology, classical archaeology, Middle Eastern archaeology, and pre-Columbian archaeology. The following are special requirements for each subfield. A list of courses in each subfield is available from the archaeological studies undergraduate adviser.
a. Anthropological archaeology: At least fifteen semester hours, including three hours of geological sciences or geography and three hours of biology. One upper-division course in cultural anthropology may be substituted for a course in anthropological archaeology.
b. Classical archaeology: At least fifteen semester hours, including six hours of ancient history. The student, especially one who is considering graduate study, is strongly encouraged (but not required) to use Greek or Latin to fulfill the foreign language requirement for the bachelorÐs degree.
c. Middle Eastern archaeology: Three semester hours in Middle Eastern geography is required. Hebrew, Arabic, or Persian is recommended (but not required) to fulfill the foreign language requirement for the bachelorÐs degree.
d. Pre-Columbian archaeology: Courses covering at least two of the following three geographical areas: the Andes, Mesoamerica, Anglo-America. The student must use Spanish to fulfill the foreign language requirement for the bachelorÐs degree.
e. Other: Special programs in other subfields may be designed where appropriate and where offerings are available, with the approval of the Archaeological Studies Committee.
4. At least one upper-division course in anthropological archaeology and one upper-division course in classics or art history that deals with archaeology. (This requirement may be fulfilled in whole or in part by courses taken to meet requirement 3.)

Rationale: To clarify that ten courses are required for the major. This has always been the intention as the major does not require a minor, but it was never specified in the catalog as such.
