Dean Rod Hart of the College of Communication has filed with the secretary of the Faculty Council the following changes to the Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders in the College of Communication chapter in the Undergraduate Catalog, 2008-2010. The faculty of the college approved the changes on September 11, 2007, and the dean approved them on September 18, 2007. The secretary has classified this proposal as legislation of general interest to more than college or school.

The Committee on Undergraduate Degree Program Review recommended approval of the change on October 10, 2007, and forwarded the proposed changes to the Office of the General Faculty. The Faculty Council has the authority to approve this legislation on behalf of the General Faculty. The authority to grant final approval on this legislation resides with the Executive Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs.

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 an 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.

CHANGES TO THE BACHELOR OF SCIENCE
IN COMMUNICATION SCIENCES AND DISORDERS IN THE
COLLEGE OF COMMUNICATION CHAPTER OF
THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2008-2010


NAME OF DEGREE PROGRAM(S): BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN COMMUNICATION SCIENCES AND DISORDERS
EXPLAIN CHANGE(S) TO DEGREE PROGRAM:

1. The Speech-Language Pathology track and the Audiology track will remove CSD 315S and require that Speech-Language Pathology and the Audiology majors take CSD 358, Anatomy and Physiology Speech Mechanisms, and CSD 358S, Speech Perception and Production. This will in effect, increase the number of CSD hours for speech-language pathology majors to thirty-four semester hours and 38 semester hours for audiology majors.
2. The Speech-Language Pathology track will remove CSD 378 and 178L.
3. Remove CSD 368K and CSD 168L which is required for all three tracks in CSD and add CSD 318K, Acquisition of Communicative Abilities in Children and 118L, Acquisition of Communicative Abilities in Children: Laboratory to the three tracks. This in effect will increase the number of hours from 28 hours to 31 hours for deaf education majors in order to meet the 15-hour minimum upper-division requirement.


Indicate pages in the Undergraduate Catalog where changes will be made.
Pages 80-82.

GIVE A DETAILED RATIONALE FOR THE CHANGE(S):
1. CSD 315S is being dropped in preference for two new upper-division courses (CSD 358 and CSD 358S) that will provide a stronger foundation in speech science than would a single course. Additionally, the content of both courses will be presented at a more advanced level, which is befitting of an upper division classification. Finally, this arrangement, two upper division courses, rather than one lower division course is consistent with curricular offerings at peer-level institutions.
2. CSD 378 and 178L are being removed from the Speech-Language Pathology track because this coursework is more applicable to audiology majors.
3. CSD 368K and CSD 168L are being deleted in favor of the new lower-division course and lab (CSD 318K and CSD 118L). This change will introduce students to assessment and intervention at the lower division level thus providing them with a stronger foundation for required upper division courses in the major. CSD 368K and 168L served as hours towards the 15-hour upper-division minimum in the Education of the Deaf track. The only way to meet this requirement under this proposed change is to add 3 additional hours of upper-division CSD coursework to this track.


SCOPE OF THE PROPOSED CHANGE(S):
Does this proposal impact other colleges/schools? If yes, then how?
Yes, Item 1 will affect linguistic majors since CSD 315S, which is the same as LIN 315 (Department of Linguistics, College of Liberal Arts) serves as an elective option for linguistic majors. By removing this course from the course inventory, these students will not be able to take 315S. However, arrangements have been made to allow linguistic majors to take the two new courses as elective options.

Has the other college(s)/school(s) been informed of the proposed change? If so, please indicate their response. Yes.

Person Communicated With:Richard P. Meier, professor, linguistics

No.

Does this proposal involve changes to the core curriculum (42-hour core, signature courses, flags)? If yes, please explain.
Yes, the changes reflect the new University-wide Core Curriculum.
