Proposed changes to The Radio-television-film Degree Program in the College of communication Section in the Undergraduate Catalog 2014-2016

NAME OF CHANGE:
  Academic 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. Radio-Television-Film majors will no longer be required to take RTF 305, Intro to Media Studies. Instead, majors can opt to take RTF 305 as one of the twelve required hours of lower-level RTF coursework required for the degree.

Rationale: From a content/foundational standpoint, the course is not necessary to succeed in other lower (and upper-divison) RTF classes.

  1. Add RTF 324F to the options that students have to fulfill one of two required upper-level media studies courses.

Rationale: This media studies course is in the inventory and was previously omitted from the media studies area.
