Effective DateFall 2008
Brief Summary of ProposalChange present title "Advanced Paleontology" to new title "Macroevolution" to better describe the course content. Change prerequisites to include Biology so students can take it without having had Paleobiology. This course deals with advanced topics in macroevolutionary theory as examined through the fossil record. It does not focus on the same topics as Evolutionary Biology (3100:316), but it would definitely complement it.
