CHANGES TO BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN RADIO-TELEVISION-FILM IN THE COLLEGE OF COMMUNICATION CHAPTER OF THE
UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2010-2012


NAME OF DEGREE PROGRAM(S): Bachelor of Science in Radio-Television-Film

EXPLAIN CHANGE(S) TO DEGREE PROGRAM:1
Remove RTF 369, Advanced Writing for Film and Electronic Media, from the list of studies courses from which RTF majors may select their required upper-division classes.
The Radio-Television-Film program is eliminating the reference to specified areas of study such as production, screenwriting, etc.

Indicate pages in the undergraduate catalog where changes will be made. pages 98-99 and 113

GIVE A DETAILED RATIONALE FOR CHANGE(S):
All RTF majors are required to take two media studies courses from an approved list. The course content of RTF 369 is a skills course and does not meet the analytical content criteria of the courses on this list.
The elimination of the reference of the specified areas is to streamline the program description and to better convey the multidisciplinary aspect of the program. The current description has incorrect course titles and in some cases incorrect numbers since we have made changes on the course inventory. The lengthy listing of prerequisites in the older copy is cumbersome, and in any case the same information is repeated elsewhere in the catalog and in course schedules.

SCOPE OF THE PROPOSED CHANGE(S):
Does this proposal impact other colleges/schools? If yes, then how?No.
If yes, have the other colleges/schools been informed of the proposed changes? If so, please indicate their responses: N/A

Does this proposal involve changes to the core curriculum or other basic education requirements (42-hour core, signature courses, flags)? If yes, please explain: No.
If yes, has the School of Undergraduate Studies been informed of the proposed changes? 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.
