SUMMARY:
1. There are comments made by two Liaisons that should be address. Please add your comments either to the Comments Section found under the Justification Tab or attached as a Document.

In the Requirements Block:
1. AREC designator will be deleted this Summer 2015. Your proposal requests to be effective Summer 2015. May I recommend removing AREC as a designator?
2. AEC 552 has a crosslisted designator. Please add MRM.
3. Please change the Course Credits on CH 590.
4. Please correct FW 538 Course Title to reflect what is listed in the Online Catalog.

Thank you for your time,

We removed ST 511 from the skills section per liaison comment. We will be reviewing our certificate programs in details this summer, at this time we will not to add the OC and GEO courses to our curriculum. However, we have made note of these suggestions for discussion during the review.

Proposal

Proposal ID: 93599
Type: Change Major/Option/Minor/Certificate
Submission Date: April 9, 2015 11:58am
Approval Date: April 17, 2015 3:14pm
Effective Term: Fall 2015
Justification:
Adding the additional skills courses section (not required) allows students to gain technical skills that are typically listed in job announcements in the Fisheries Sciences and aligns both of our Graduate Certificates with each other. Listing these courses in the curriculum also allows for students to apply financial aid towards tuition without the constant need for continued conversations between advisors and the financial aid office.

Should add OC 534, Estuarine Ecology, to group 2. Otherwise this looks pretty complete.
Also, could perhaps make the case for some more non ecology science courses like OC 533, Coastal and Estuarine Oceanography. Some MRM courses? Check with Flaxen Conway about that. In GEO, perhaps GEO 582, Geomorphology of Forests and Streams?

Ok. Note: ST 511 is listed in the group of Skills Courses. Note in fall 2015 we will no longer offer ST511 online. We will teach a more computer oriented statistics course online covering the same topics as ST 511. This request has been submitted as a Cat II request. We currently do not have a number for this class. This new course could be used as a substitute for ST 511 if an online class is desired.

Program Title: Fisheries Management (CERT) 
CIP Code: 030301
College/Department or College/School: College of Agricultural Sciences / Fisheries and Wildlife 

Program Type: Graduate Certificate 
Original Program: Fisheries Management (CERT) 
Description: Updated 

Fisheries management is facing unprecedented challenges. Scientists, decision makers, and stakeholders must work together to rebuild over-fished stocks, implement ecosystem-based approaches, design global fisheries agreements, sustain coastal fishing communities, reduce over-capacity and increase the cost-effectiveness of research and management.

Oregon State University’s Graduate Certificate in Fisheries Management integrates diverse approaches and perspectives to find effective solutions for complex fisheries management problems at all levels, local to international.

Certificate Overview:

The graduate certificate is available for completion online or on-campus and is designed to accommodate the needs of private, agency and NGO professionals, decision-makers and graduate students in the U.S. and other nations.

Current Graduate Students: You must notify the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife of your intention to pursue this certificate. Upon consultation with the certificate program directors, you will be given instructions regarding listing courses on your program of study and obtaining the required signature for that form.

For more information, please see our program site on the Ecampus website at http://ecampus.oregonstate.edu/online-degrees/graduate/fisheries-management/ and our departmental website at http://fw.oregonstate.edu or contact the program coordinator at fw.gradadvising@oregonstate.edu.

Professionals and other students: You must notify the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife of your intention to pursue this certificate.
