NAME OF DEGREE PROGRAM(S): COMMUNICATION SCIENCES AND DISORDERS1
EXPLAIN CHANGE(S) TO DEGREE PROGRAM:
Require four hours of the CSD 175K, Symposium on Deafness, to count towards the deaf education major.

Indicate pages in the Undergraduate Catalog where changes will be made.
Page 81.

GIVE A DETAILED RATIONALE FOR THE CHANGE(S):
Over the years the Symposium on Deafness, CSD 175K, has become a core component of the preprofessional development of deaf education majors, yet students do not earn academic credit, and the department cannot require enrollment in the course, because it may not be counted towards any degree. Because it does not carry academic credit, some students have considered it an optional “extra” rather than as an integral part of their degree program, to the detriment of their academic development. The proposed changes recognize the importance of this course in the major by designating it a major degree requirement counting toward the degree.

SCOPE OF THE PROPOSED CHANGE(S):
Does this proposal impact other colleges/schools? If yes, then how? No.

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

Will this proposal change the number of required hours for degree completion? If yes, please explain. No.

Does this proposal involve changes to the core curriculum (42-hour core, signature courses, flags)? If yes, please explain. No.

COLLEGE/SCHOOL APPROVAL PROCESS:

Department: yes Date: March 27, 2008
Dean: yes Date: March 31, 2008
