3.Delete:†† On pg. 59, under Art with Teacher Licensure, Section I:

 

†††† Add:†††††† On pg. 59, in place of deleted entry:

 

††††††††† I. Required courses in the program--51 hours, including: ART 100, 101, 102, 103 (foundation core), 210, 220, 227, 230, 240, 400, 451; 12 hours from Art History offerings, including ARTH 201 and 202; 6 additional studio hours in one medium.

 

 

Impact:

The Introduction to Art History sequence is essential for majors to gain fundamental knowledge about artís history and social context.The material taught in ARTH 201 and 202 complements the departmentís studio curriculum by helping students to develop a broader awareness of artís cultural function and technical practice in varied cultures throughout history.Requiring all art majors to complete ARTH 201 and 202 will create high demand for these classes, which also draw students interested in the topic from outside the department.This could necessitate additional sections of the course and strain current faculty resources.

 

Rationale:

For many years, the Art Department has wanted an art history survey course to provide studio majors a broad-based historical foundation for their own creative work.APC approved this 2- semester course sequence in 2004; the department now wants to integrate these changes in the art history program into the existing studio curriculum.
