SUMMARY: This CHANGE proposal seeks to update the requirements for the Undergraduate Option.

CIP 030201 has been added to the proposal.

APA has:
1) Removed "Hatfield Marine Science Center" from FW 426. Originator and Curriculum Coordinator agreed it was not needed.

All Components are met per the Faculty Senate Curriculum Council guidelines.

SUMMARY: In preparation for the new Online Catalog the Registrar's Office is requesting all cross-listed courses be listed on separate lines using "or" at the beginning.

WAS:
FW/BI 464. Marine Conservation Biology (3)

NOW:
FW. 464. Marine Conservation Biology (3)
or BI 464. Marine Conservation Biology (3)

Please correction and resubmit.

Approved by Larry Bulling Academic Wage Appt - Hourly / Office of the Registrar, January 24, 2018 9:21am

Proposal

Proposal ID: 102166
Type: Change Major/Option/Minor/Certificate
Submission Date: January 23, 2018 3:07pm
Approval Date: January 24, 2018 9:21am
Effective Term: Summer 2018
Justification:
We are removing the restriction of only 24 credits from one department. This was an unnecessary restriction that is no longer needed. We moved the Measurements requirement from the Natural Resources Core into each specialty option in order to insure that students take the most applicable courses for their chosen specialty. Courses were removed, added or reorganized as needed.

This option will now be available for Ecampus students as well as Corvallis Campus students.
Comments:
Response to comments from Brock Mc Leod: Thanks for these suggestions. We agree that Z 349 "Biodiversity: Causes Consequences and Conservation" and Z 423 "Environmental Physiology" would be good additions to the Ecological and Natural Resources Electives block and have been added.
Z 350 "Animal Behavior" and BI 347 "Oceans in Peril" will be added in the revised major courses (what was the NR Core and Breadth) for Fisheries and Marine Science and Wildlife Management. They seem less focused on the restoration theme of this option so we feel these courses would be more appropriate in a different area.
