Proposed changes to The ARCHITECTURE degree programs in the School of Architecture Chapter in The Undergraduate Catalog, 2012-2014

NAME OF DEGREE PROGRAM(S):
  B. Arch, BSAS, and BSID


IF THE ANSWER TO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS IS YES, THE COLLEGE MUST CONSULT NEAL ARMSTRONG WHO WILL DETERMINE WHETHER SACS-COC APPROVAL IS NEEDED.:
• Is this a new degree program? No
• Does the program offer courses that will be taught off campus? No
• Will courses in this program be delivered electronically? No

EXPLAIN CHANGE TO DEGREE PROGRAM:
 
  1. Implementation of all flags. This allows for the removal of the outdated “Writing requirement” language from all School of Architecture undergraduate degree plans, as writing flags are now required.

  2. Limit to the number of times courses offered in the School of Architecture may be repeated.

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

 

Pages 29-30


GIVE A DETAILED RATIONALE FOR CHANGE(S):

 
  1. Implementation of flags will put the School of Architecture in compliance with core curriculum changes mandated by the University and Board of Regents. The “Writing requirement” info was outdated. Updated requirements for writing are encompassed by flags.

  2. Having a limit to the number of times a student can repeat a course requires unsuccessful students to consider a better suited major in a more timely fashion. Given the sequential nature of the courses, the limit on repetition will decrease time to UT degree.

SCOPE OF THE PROPOSED CHANGE(S):
Does this proposal impact other colleges/schools? If yes, then how?
 

No


If yes, impacted schools must be contacted and their response(s) included:
 

 


Does this proposal involve changes to the core curriculum or other basic education requirements (42-hour core, signature courses, flags)?

  Yes

If yes, explain:
 

The School of Architecture is implementing all flags for all School of Architecture degree plans.


Person communicated with:         Jeanette Herman
Date of communication:               September 22, 2011

  No

If yes, explain:
