CHANGES TO THE BACHELOR OF ARTS IN EUROPEAN STUDIES
IN THE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS CHAPTER OF
THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2008-2010


NAME OF DEGREE PROGRAM(S): BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE WITH A MAJOR IN EUROPEAN STUDIES
EXPLAIN CHANGE(S) TO DEGREE PROGRAM:
Add a requirement that students take at least one course from each of three different topics areas (9 hours total.) We are adding 6 new topics courses, 3 courses at the upper-division and 3 courses at the lower-division level. Currently, students have 15 hours of non-prescribed EUS coursework available to them within the major. This change, which does not affect the total hours required for the major, will still allow EUS students 6 hours on "elective" coursework within the major.

Indicate pages in the Undergraduate Catalog where changes will be made. Page 303

GIVE A DETAILED RATIONALE FOR THE CHANGE(S):
The original draft of the European Studies major proposal in 2005 included a requirement that students take EUS courses from several different disciplines. However, with our single general topics course EUS 361, we were unable to track or enforce completion of the intended requirement and, therefore, removed it from the original new major proposal for the 2006-2008 Undergraduate Catalog. Creation of these 6 new courses makes the addition of such a requirement possible.
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

No.
