New Course Proposal
MB 340 INTRODUCTORY VIROLOGY

Status: Draft

Proposal

Proposal ID: 102113
Type: New Course
Effective Term: Fall 2018
Justification:
We have identified a need for a new introductory 300-level coarse in virology that would serve three groups: 1. Students completing a Microbiology Minor (which we plan to offer on-line); 2. Students in BioHealth Sciences and other majors who are interested in Virology but not at the advanced 400-level, or who lack the prerequisites for the existing upper-level course; 3. Students seeking an online course in Virology that is not encumbered by restrictive prerequisites. The proposed course is distinguished from existing courses as follows: MB 434/534 Virology (also taught by Theo Dreher) is more advanced and more comprehensive and has restrictive prerequisites (MB 310 and BB 451); BI 420 Viruses in Modern Society (taught by Valerian Dolja) is also 400-level with restrictive prerequisites (BI 311 or BI 314), and is offered only every second year; VMB 653 (Veterinary Virology), which is not accessible to undergraduates.
Comments:
Note: Jerri Bartholomew has added an additional comment, suggesting the course be 4-credits (see email in Documents section)
