New Course Proposal
BA 330 LEGAL ENVIRONMENT OF BUSINESS

Status: Draft

Proposal

Proposal ID: 101491
Type: New Course
Effective Term: Winter 2018
Justification:
we currently offer different sections of BA 230 Business Law for business majors and non-majors. This causes confusion among students when trying to register for the class. We need to create separate courses for majors and non-majors.

Over 90% of the non-business students who complete BA 230 have upper-division standing. The rate of students earning grades of D or F, or withdrawing from the course (DFW rate) is higher for the second-year students (14.3% for second year, 9.0 % for upper-division).

Our proposal is to create BA 330 as the business law course for non-business majors.
