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

CIP 030201 has been added to the proposal.

APA contacted the Originator. Many Courses have "Hatfield Marine Science Center and Ecampus" or "Hatfield Marine Science Center" It was agreed all of these comments will be removed. (BI/FW 302, FW 331, FW 426, FW 419, FW 431, FW 469)

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

Approved by Larry Bulling Program Technician 1 / Office of the Registrar, January 25, 2018 10:22am

Proposal

Proposal ID: 102180
Type: Change Major/Option/Minor/Certificate
Submission Date: January 24, 2018 10:18am
Approval Date: January 25, 2018 10:22am
Effective Term: Summer 2018
Justification:
We are removing the restriction of only 24 credits from one department. This restriction 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 to update the option.
Comments:
Response to liaison Shannon Riggs: Typo has been fixed.

Response to liaison Brock Mc Leod: Z 423 has been added to the Fish and Wildlife Biology block. BI 347, Z 349, Z 350, and Z 477 have been added to the Electives block. We decline to add BI 348 Human Ecology to this option. While it is a great sustainability course we feel that it does not cover enough pertinent to fish and wildlife management.
