Brief Summary of ProposalThis proposal includes the addition of new Anthropology courses to the Concentration Electives segment of the major and a replacement of specific course titles in the Program Electives segment with a listing of the departmentsí numbers from which a student may choose any 300-400 level class. There are no changes in the number of credit hours or the Core requirements for the major. The addition of the new courses enriches student options in three areas of the discipline; it provides all the options necessary for the newly approved Certificate Program in Field Archaeology, it strengthens the Physical Anthropology component with an upper division class and it broadens the Cultural component with an additional course. The replacement of specific course titles in the Program Electives segment, (students are required to take a minimum of 11 credits) updates and simplifies the options for the students. Instead of the 67 classes listed as options, the students are given the option of any Anthropology/Archaeology, 3230 or 3240 course for 6 credits and the remaining 5 or more can be selected from any 300-400 level course offered by the partner departments (Biology, Classics, English, Geography and Planning, Geology, History, Modern Languages and Sociology). The change allows the student more choices and eliminates the frustration of trying to keep the Bulletin list up-to-date. There is no change in credit hours for the major.
