CHANGES TO THE YOUTH AND COMMUNITY STUDIES MAJOR
IN THE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION CHAPTER OF
THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2008-2010


NAME OF DEGREE PROGRAM(S):Applied Learning and Development (ALD)—Youth and Community Studies major. This is a non-teacher certification major.
EXPLAIN CHANGE(S) TO DEGREE PROGRAM:

To comply with a recent state mandate to reduce the number of semester hours required for baccalaureate degrees to 120 hours, the College of Education is proposing to reduce the number of semester hours required for the ALD—Youth and Community Studies major from 130 to 120. To do this, we would:
  • reduce the number of hours in math and science from 18 to 15 semester hours by deleting M 316K, Foundations of Arithmetic, an elementary education certification requirement. We will still require a 3-semester hour basic math course
  • reduce the number of hours in ALD from 18 to 15 by deleting an additional 3-semester hour ALD elective course
  • reduce the number of hours in the minor from 18 to 15
  • delete one semester hour from electives
Indicate pages in the Undergraduate Catalog where changes will be made. Pages 110-112
