Statement of Faculty Senate Action:

 

 

APC Document 2:††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††† Delete LANG 351, Writing for Business and the Professions

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Delete LIT 351, Beginning Old English

 

 

Effective Date: Fall 2009

 

 

1.Delete:†††††††† On page 185, the entry for LANG 351:

††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††

351††††††††††† Writing for Business and Professions (3)

Application of the writing process to the special needs of business and professional contexts. Prerequisite: freshman composition requirement: See department chair.

 

 

2.Delete:†††††††† On page 187, the entry for LIT 351:

 

351 †††††††††† Beginning Old English (3)

An introductory study of Old English prose and poetic texts with relevant cultural and historical background. No prior familiarity with Old English required. See department chair.

 

 

Impact Statement:

There should be no impact on the resources and staffing of the Literature and Language Department or other departments on campus with the deletion of these two courses. The Management Department has not required LANG 351 for a number of years and neither course has been taught in the last five years. There are sufficient electives in the Literature and Language Department for students to be able to satisfy requirements without these courses.

 

Rationale:

The last time LANG 351 was taught was in Spring 2002 with only seven students enrolled. The last time LIT 351 was taught was in Fall 1998 with nine students enrolled. With little or no student interest and with the belief that neither course is integral to the departmentís curriculum, the Literature and Language Department faculty proposes both courses be deleted from the Catalog.††
