RATIONALE:

1. The faculty believes that the proposed changes will improve each of the degree plans within the School of Architecture.

2 The changes proposed for the BArch and BSID do not alter the total number of hours required for those degrees. In the BSArchSt, the number of hours in the School of Architecture is reduced by seven. The school proposes to increase the number of hours of electives by six so that students may continue to choose electives from the broad range of three-hour courses. Consequently, the number of hours required for the BSArchSt is reduced from 125 to 124.

.3. The changes that are proposed do not substantially alter each of the degree plans.
