PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE HEALTH PROMOTION DEGREE PROGRAM IN THE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION SECTION IN THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG 2014-2016


Type of Change Academic Change
  1. 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

  2. EXPLAIN CHANGE TO DEGREE PROGRAM AND GIVE A DETAILED RATIONALE FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL CHANGE:
    A. Under “Prescribed Work” #1, change “two courses with a writing flag” to “three” courses.
    Rationale: Aligns with the required flags for 2014-16 catalog.
    B. Under “Prescribed Work” #5, delete the statement “Three semester hours of course work that carries a Global Cultures Flag.”
    Rationale:
    All statements about flags are being included in the Core Curriculum area of our degrees.
    C. Remove the Foreign Language requirement from the Health Promotion “Major Requirements”.
    Rationale:
    We are also adopting the UGS policy about foreign languages for the Health Promotion major and will include that modification under the “Major Requirements” (see below).
    D. Delete the statement “In place of three semester hours of course work that carries a Global Cultures Flag.” CMS 306M is still being required but it will not be in place of the Global Cultures flag. 
    Rationale:
    We will be requiring all the flags in the 2014-16 catalog for all our majors, so the Global Cultures flag will be a requirement in the Health Promotion major as will CMS 306M.
