Several comments were made about availability of "new" courses online. Have these been addressed or responded to? Once these comments have been addressed directly or through modifications of the proposal I can then approve the curricular changes.

Comments

Gary Beach (Academic Programs) November 8, 2016 1:34pm
The "pending" statement associated with FOR 526 has been changed from:
(pending approval #97542)
to
(pending approval #97452).

Because this program is available online via Ecampus, Alfonso Bradoch and Shannon Riggs were added as contacts.

From the perspective of Academic Programs there are no other identifiable issues or problems associated with change in major proposals.

The revised MNR curriculum is interdisciplinary and has added many new courses that will give more options and flexibility to our MNR students. The three new programs expand the choice for area of emphasis to our MNR students.

Alfonso Bradoch - Dir-Dept & Studen Svcs / Extended Campus
I support the addition of the existing online graduate certificates as options in the MNR program. However, upon review of the MNR Changes document (https://secure.oregonstate.edu/ap/cps/documents/view/124011) I found that a number of the courses listed as "new" are not yet offered online. Have the associated academic units agreed to develop those courses for online delivery? Ecampus has not seen proposals for the development of those courses.

Speech Communication will be dropping COMM 524 from the curriculum under the MA/MS proposal in progress. We propose that MNR substitutes COMM 550 (Communication and the Practice of Science) for 524. We offer 550 online.

With that chance change in place, I fully supports the change to the MNR curriculum.

Program Information

Program Title: Natural Resources - MNR 
CIP Code: 030201
College/Department or College/School: College of Forestry / Forest Ecosystems and Society 

Program Type: Graduate Major 
Original Program: Natural Resources - MNR 
Description: Updated 

Also available via Ecampus.

 

The MNR is a 45-credit online degree program with curriculum organized into three sections: core (18 credits), area of emphasis (18 credits), and capstone project (9 credits). It is taught entirely online through OSU Ecampus, although some students work toward the MNR degree while in-residence at OSU.

The MNR degree is offered as a non-thesis option only with a capstone project, rather than a thesis. The MNR contemporary content is for natural resource professionals who work in settings that require cross-disciplinary competency to find solutions to natural resource problems. Integration of multiple disciplines occurs through the curriculum, assignments, and a case study project. All MNR students integrate concepts and approaches developed throughout the entire program in a final case study project.

Also available via Ecampus.
