CIP #: The CIP number for the Horticulture major, 011103, has been entered.

Course Change: The comment regarding NR 455 has been addressed. This course was dropped with HORT 300 or HORT 495 entered in its place.

Capstone Course and Horticltural Production & Management Sections: The title for HORT 300 differs when the attached checklist and CPS entry are compared with the approved catalog entry.

Catalog
HORT 300 Crop Production in the Pacific Northwest Agroecosystem (4)

Checklist
HORT 300 Introcution to Crop Production (4)

Please address this apparent discrepancy.

Liaison Recommendation: Despite a statement to the contrary in the Justification that it had been removed, BA 211 is still listed in the Business Management section of the Checklist and here in the CPS proposal. Should BA 211 be removed from the Checklist and from this propsoal?

Proposal

Proposal ID: 84009 (Version 1)
Type: Change Major/Option/Minor/Certificate
Submission Date: May 7, 2012 11:19am
Effective Term: Spring 2012
Justification:
The Departments of Horticulture and Crop & Soil Science have been directed to combine their undergraduate curricula into one, shared, undergraduate degree. The proposed implementation for this new, combined degree is Fall 2013.

In preparation, a core curriculum, which will be used for all ten of the options offered within the new undergraduate degree, has been established. In addition, all CSS and HORT options have undergone substantial review and revision by the joint faculty, stakeholders, and alumni and needed, new options have also been identified and developed. Eight current CSS and HORT options are simply being revised and updated, while two new options have been developed. Two existing HORT options are also being deleted. Staffing changes in the Departments of Horticulture and Crop & Soil Science have also necessitated substantial revision of both required and elective classes.

The Department Heads and Faculty of both Horticulture and Crop & Soil Science believe it is important, in order to serve students’ needs and best utilize departmental resources, to implement these changes and additions in options prior to the establishment of the new undergraduate degree. Needed changes to options, including the deletion of courses no longer offered or the addition of new courses, have been on hold for over two years, because of uncertainty about if and when a new, shared undergraduate degree would be established. Consequently, we are proceeding with updating and adding options at this time, to insure we are offering the most efficient and effective programs for our students.

The option proposed here is being submitted as part of this process. This proposed option of “General Horticulture” is a revision of the former “General Horticulture” option in the Horticulture B.S. degree.
Comments:
This spring, we will submit CAT II Proposals to revise or delete all of the options currently offered within the Horticulture and Crop & Soil Science Departments. In addition, two new options, in Plant Breeding & Genetics and Insect Biology & Management, will be submitted to the CAT II Proposal system.

The CAT I Proposal, to establish the new, shared undergraduate degree, will be submitted in time for availability in Fall 2013. Until that time, these new and revised options will be offered as part of the B.S. in Horticulture or the B.S. in Crop & Soil Science.

The CAT I Proposal, to establish the new, shared undergraduate degree, is not being submitted at this time because further discussions between the Departments of Horticulture and Crop & Soil Science, and possible directives from College Administrators, are needed to finalize the name of the new degree.

In response to liaisons, BA 211 was removed from this option, and also from the other B.S. Horticulture options submitted. In additon, NR 455 has been removed entirely from the option and replaced with HORT 300 and HORT 495.

I think you would be better off leaving the course for accounting as BA 215 rather than BA 211 or BA 215. BA 215 covers both financial reporting and managerial accounting (decision making, budgeting etc). If the students are only going to take one accounting class BA 215 is a much better choice. BA 211 is intended to be the first in a pair of classes not as a one class only choice.

The CAC has reviewed this proposal and suggests the following items be addressed before going forward.
1. The Natural Resource Program (Connie Patterson) comments needs to be addressed.
2. One course in accounting or business management probably does not provide enough knowledge in business mgmt for this program. However, students could be encouraged to combine it with a minor in ABM. If only 1 course it should be BA 215. ABM minors take BA211 and BA213 (that's the 2 class series).

This proposal indicates NR 455 is to be used as the capstone course. NR 455 is offered once a year on campus, is restricted to Natural Resources and Resource Recreation Management students as a required course, and is full to capacity. There are no plans to offer more sections or raise the capacity of the course, so it will be unavailable for Horticulture students.

Program Information

Program Title: General Horticulture 
CIP Code: 011103
College/Department or College/School: College of Agricultural Sciences / Horticulture 

Program Type: Undergraduate Option 
Associated Major: Horticulture - BS, CRED, HBS 
Original Program: General Horticulture 
Description: Updated 

The online General Horticulture option curriculum is built on a strong foundation in horticultural science. This option is especially recommended for students already working in the horticultural industry, whose careers will benefit from post-secondary education in the horticultural sciences. Students learn horticultural principles and practices associated with horticultural production within the context of plant biology, pest management, soils, ecology, and economics with applications in plant nutrition, pest management, business, and marketing. In addition, students are well-informed about the latest technology and trends in the field. The option provides sufficiently broad electives for the student to build his or her curriculum to meet specific goals.

Our graduates are skilled in finding and using information, as well as synthesizing information from many sources to solve problems. On-campus students benefit from field and lab experiences, and internships. Ecampus students will benefit from these same hands-on opportunities. With departmental support, the online student will identify opportunities for field and internship experiences, which will be vetted by the department. Some lab experiences will be in the form of kits that the student will purchase and receive by mail; others will be virtual lab experiences created collaboratively between Horticulture Department faculty and the curriculum design team in Ecampus.

The internship provides professional-level interaction with growers, managers, field reps, and consultants, and provides hands-on experience. Mentoring and advising will assist online students in taking advantage of departmental strengths. We anticipate that many online students will already be employed in one of the horticultural industries.

 Grade Requirements

Students pursuing a major or minor in horticulture are required to receive a grade of C– or better in all HORT (horticulture) and PBG (plant breeding and genetics) courses that are required for completion of their major and option, or minor. If a grade below C– is received in a HORT or PBG course required for their major and option, or minor, a student will need to re-take the course and receive a grade of C– or better. If the grade below a C– was received for a course that is part of a group of courses where the student can select which courses to take (i.e., they do not need to take all of the courses, just a specified number of courses or credits) then it would be acceptable for the student to substitute a course for the one that they had received a grade below a C–. For example, in most of our options, a student needs to complete three of four plant identification courses. If a student received a grade lower than a C– in one of the classes, they could either re-take the same course or complete the other three courses with a grade of C– or better.

 Grade RequirementsStudents pursuing a blended course; major or minor in horticulture are required to receive a grade of C– or better in all HORT (horticulture) and PBG (plant breeding and genetics) courses that are required for completion of their major and option, or minor. If a grade below C– is received in a HORT or PBG course required for their major and option, or minor, a student will come online after Summer Term 2011.
8 Pre-requisite: FW 251, Principles of FW Conservation (3).
need to re-take the course and receive a grade of C– or better. If the grade below a C– was received for a course that is part of a group of courses where the student can select which courses to take (i.e., they do not need to take all of the courses, just a specified number of courses or credits) then it would be acceptable for the student to substitute a course for the one that they had received a grade below a C–. For example, in most of our options, a student needs to complete three of four plant identification courses. If a student received a grade lower than a C– in one of the classes, they could either re-take the same course or complete the other three courses with a grade of C– or better.
