Proposal

Proposal ID: 101725
Type: Change Major/Option/Minor/Certificate
Submission Date: October 31, 2017 7:44am
Approval Date: January 9, 2018 2:00pm
Effective Term: Summer 2018
Justification:
We are revising our Wildlife Certificate requirements to reflect changes in course offerings and reorganize our requirements to focus more clearly on the intent of the certificate, which is to give students skills that help them seek employment as working wildlife biologists.

Changes include: We have streamlined the courses in the human dimensions section to reflect online availability and feedback from students about course suitability and now only require one course from this category. We dropped the “skills” requirement. While useful, it was not providing the level of competency needed for students to claim technical expertise in a subject. We have renamed the “Wildlife Sciences Core” to “Wildlife Sciences and Management Subject Area” and reorganized the courses under this heading into two broad categories related to species and habitats to help students visualize how courses relate to each other.
