This proposal seeks to reduce the number of credits of the Natural Resources option Native Americans and Natural Resources from 50 to 41. This change is part of the changes proposed in Proposal 80557, which increases the Core and Breadth areas of the NR program by reducing the number of credits in its options.

"no more than 20 lower-division credits" is confusing since nearly all courses are upper division.

Proposal

Proposal ID: 80765
Type: Change Major/Option/Minor/Certificate
Submission Date: November 30, 2010 1:23pm
Approval Date: January 7, 2011 1:39pm
Effective Term: Winter 2011
Justification:
As part of the Natural Resources program curricular revision process, options were reduced from 50 to a minimum of 40 credits. This change gave us the opportunity to review and revise options as appropriate. Options which were submitted in the past by various faculty members were revised by these same individuals (if they chose to do so).
Comments:
This change in option is linked with Proposal 80557, which changes the Core and Breadth areas of the Natural Resources program. An increase in credits in the Core and Breadth areas necessitates a decrease in credits in this option.
