Senate Document Number 2299S
Date of Senate Approval 2/11/99
Statement of Faculty Senate Action:
Effective Date: Fall 1999
Delete: the paragraph under the heading "Minor in Humanities"
Replace: with the following
20 hours: HUM 324 and 414; 12 additional hours; excluding courses in the major or General Education requirements. These 12 hours must be chosen from more than one department; must include at least 3 hours at the 300-400 level; must pursue a coherent theme or reflect a specific area of interest; and must be approved by the program director. Humanities Special Topics courses may be included.
Rationale: Students minoring in Humanities will be better served by taking at least one upper-level elected course. This is in-line with policies in other programs and departments. In order for a student to construct a minor correctly, he or she needs to refer to the general university guidelines.
