Impact: Adding this course will have no resource implications for the department.

 

Rationale: This class has been taught three times already. It is an ILSA course and is part of ILS Cluster 4: Perception: Senses, Self, and Society. It is an approved Diversity Intensive and Writing Intensive course. There has been consistently high demand for the course, resulting in its being overenrolled every semester itís taught.The department plans to continue offering the course to serve the ILS program as well as students in the literature and language department.Because they are currently being taught as special topics courses, the courses are already incorporated into faculty teaching loads.

 

 

2.Add: ††††On pg 172, new course, LANG 466, Advanced Creative Non-Fiction

 

††††††††† †††††466†††††††† Advanced Creative Non-Fiction(3)

Prerequisite: admission to concentration in creative writing and LANG 363 or LANG 366; or permission of the instructor. See department chair.
