Statement of Faculty Senate Action:

 

 

APC Document 2:††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††† Revising Concentration in International Economics

 

Effective Date: Fall 2007

 

1.†††††††† Delete:On pg 104, the first section of the requirements for the concentration in International Economics:

 

I. Required courses in the majoró34 hours, including: ECON 101, 102, 301, 302, 365, 380, 480; one course from 316, 406 or 450; 250, 314, 350; 3 additional hours in Economics.

 

Add:On pg 104, in place of deleted entry:

 

I. Required courses in the majoró34 hours, including: ECON 101, 102, 301, 302, 365, 380, 480; one course from ECON 316, 406 or 450; ECON 350; two courses from ECON 250, 314, and 355; 3 additional hours in Economics.

 

Impact: The impact of this change is on enrollments for ECON 250 (Economic Globalization) and ECON 314 (Economic Growth and Development), which are no longer required for the concentration, although students will still have to take at least one of these courses.Both of these courses are in ILS clusters, and both have had high enrollments in the past, so the impact is of no consequence.

 

Rationale: This change results in greater choice and flexibility for students pursuing the International Economics concentration.Of the four courses in international economics which we offer (250, 314, 350, and 355), only 350 will be required, because it is a survey of international economic theory; the other three study particular areas within international economics.
