Page 238

GIVE A DETAILED RATIONALE FOR CHANGE(S):

1. This change is being made to broaden the studio art offerings required for majors in either the art teacher certification or community arts programs and administration track and to address the lower division studio art imbalance that remained after the removal of three studio art hours to create room on the degree for UGS 302/303.
2. The Department of Art and Art History plans to combine the two-hour lab plus one-hour lecture format of current VAS curriculum into a three-hour course format with new course numbers and to change the sequencing of the curriculum. Thus it is necessary to remove the explicitly stated VAS course numbers from the catalog in order to provide flexibility as the program and curriculum continues to adapt and grow.

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

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.
