A message from the CLA Curriculum Committee:

The following minor changes to the syllabus are required for approval of this course at the college level:

1) Explicit statement that the textbook is a required reading

2) Updated link to the academic honesty policy (

3) Some reviewers are picky about *how* the students are told about the number of hours the course meets per week. It may be a good idea to state the hours required rather than just list the intended meeting times.

Please revise as follows:
1. In Edit, Course Info, the section on Courses Taught Schedule (see Help button) is to show which terms and how often per year the course will be taught. Only the syllabus shows the hours of class meeting time, to match the credits.
2. The catalog description in the proposal (Edit, Course Info) is overlong. Please see the following policy on Course Description and revise accordingly, remembering to remove the words "this class" from the description:

Both concerns from Sarah Williams have been addressed. Recognition of NMC 320: History of Telecommunications as a graduation-equivalent has also been added.

This proposal seeks to create a new 3-credit course, NMC 321 History of Broadcasting.

Proposal ID: 84879
Type: New Course
Submission Date: February 4, 2013 8:46am
Approval Date: March 18, 2013 5:01pm
Effective Term: Spring 2013
The new major in Digital Communication Arts, approved in the spring, calls for students to take one of three history courses, only one of which is currently in existence (NMC 320: History of Telecommunications). Over the years that course has had a heavy burden as the only history course in our major, and covered more ground than is reasonable in ten weeks. Separating broadcasting from wired communication (e.g., telephony through the Internet) would make two valuable courses out of one frustrating course.
