UPDATE TO THE VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS PART OF THE CORE CURRICULUM COURSE LISTS FOR THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2012-2014


Motion

On behalf of the Undergraduate Studies Advisory Committee (UGSAC), the dean of undergraduate studies requests approval to add the following courses to the core curriculum course lists for the 2012-2014 Undergraduate Catalog.

Core Curriculum Area

Rationale

TD 317C

These courses were in the 2008-10 core lists, but were removed from the 2010-12 lists because the enrollment was restricted to majors. These enrollment restrictions have been lifted and they are appropriate for the core list. These courses introduce students to moments in theatre history and teach students to understand connections between cultural and theatrical traditions within a specific time and place.

 

Background

The proposal to add the aforementioned courses to the core curriculum core course lists originated in the offering department and has been approved by UGSAC as meeting the relevant student competencies, which are based on and designed to demonstrate satisfaction of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board’s Exemplary Educational Objectives. The approval dates are as follows:

Department approval date:    November 28, 2011
COFA Dean approval date:   November 28, 2011
UGSAC approval date:        December 13, 2011
UGS Dean approval date:     December 13, 2011

This motion to add these courses will combine with D 9108-9117 and D 9310-9311 to establish the core curriculum course lists for the Undergraduate Catalog, 2012-2014.
