Proposed changes to The SCANDINAVIAN STUDIES degree Program in the College of Liberal Arts SECTIOn in the Undergraduate Catalog 2014-2016

NAME OF CHANGE:
  Degree Program Change

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. Consolidate both majors as specializations under newly titled major Classical Languages.
  2. Add Greek specialization alongside Classics and Latin, with the following requirements:
    1. Twelve hours of upper-division Greek, including Greek 365.
    2. Twelve hours of Latin and/or Classical Civilization, including at least nine in upper-division coursework.
    3. Minor: twelve hours of coursework in an approved area, including six hours of upper-division coursework, or nine hours beyond 507, 601C, and 610D (including three hours upper-division) in another foreign language.
  3. In Classics specialization, add requirement of capstone major seminar (CC 375, GK 365, or LAT 365).

RATIONALES:

  1. To improve coordination of closely related majors.
  2. To balance single-language specialization in Latin with parallel specialization in Greek: each requires advanced work in one language, whereas Classics specialization requires advanced work in both languages. Requirements (a-c) are parallel to those for specialization in Latin mutatis mutandis (substituting Greek for Latin and vice versa).
  3. To strengthen major by requiring capstone seminar, as Greek and Latin specializations do (GK 365 and LAT 365, respectively).
