Proposal

Proposal ID: 96986
Type: Change Major/Option/Minor/Certificate
Submission Date: April 26, 2017 1:09pm
Approval Date: April 26, 2017 4:45pm
Effective Term: Summer 2017
Justification:
We have restructured the Social Science major at OSU-Cascades for three main reasons; (1) Requiring all students to take four required courses better enables assessment of student success and comprehension of important social theories. These courses also ensure that faculty are introducing students to case studies of the interrelatedness of social and environmental systems, which is a hallmark of our major. (2) The course selection section allows students to pursue their own interests and maintains the interdisciplinary nature of our major, which is critical to our program mandate. (3) Restructuring the major this way allows our program to expand and grow as OSU-Cascades expands and adds curricula, faculty, and courses.

We will continue to develop Options for this major. Currently, we have only 1 Option, Community Development and Leadership. We are preparing our proposal for our second Option, Communication.
Comments:
In response to feedback, we have: (1) removed MTH 247 from the list of courses fulfilling the MTH BACC requirement as the course does not exist and (2) added a NOTE to the BACC MTH list of accepted courses that MTH 113, 243, and 244 are non-OSU courses that fulfill this requirement. The courses can be completed at Oregon community colleges.
