New Programs

New Courses & Course Changes

  • The College of Aerospace Sciences and Technology  updated all its AMTA, AMTG, AMTP, and PILT courses to include a minimum prerequisite grade of “C.” In addition, six new upper-division PILT courses have been added to the offerings.
  • The Dixie L. Leavitt School of Business  has created four new graduate-level courses to support the Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.)  program, as well as two electives at the undergraduate level in the Department of Economics, Marketing, and Analytics  and a new required course for senior business majors. A small number of courses were updated with new title, description, prerequisite, and/or semester sequencing information at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
  • The Beverley Taylor Sorenson College of Education and Human Development  has added several new courses at both the undergraduate level (FLHD, PE, ELED) and the graduate/continuing education level (EDPD, EDUC, SCED). A significant portion of the courses in the Department of Kinesiology and Outdoor Recreation  have switched from a PE (Physical Education) prefix to a KIN (Kinesiology) prefix to better align with course content and help distinguish between the two programs. All FLHD courses and many others across the college have also been updated with new prerequisite minimum grades, as well as course sequencing. In addition, the college now oversees several former UNIV courses, such as SUU 1020 , SUU 1040 , SUU 1050 , SUU 1053 , SUU 1057 , and SUU 2120 .
  • In the College of Humanities and Social Sciences , the Department of Communication  modified a majority of its courses with new titles, new course numbers, new descriptions, and/or new semester sequencing, as well as four new courses. The Department of English  added two new literature courses, the Department of History, Sociology, and Anthropology  has four new courses in Anthropology and History, and the Department of Psychology  added three new courses. Seven additional courses have been created to support the Interdisciplinary Studies Program . Former ESL courses can now be found under the new ACEN prefix.
  • In the College of Performing and Visual Arts , nearly all DANC courses have been adjusted in some way, such as an updated title, a new course number, or credit totals. There are also four new DANC courses to support the program. A handful of other classes in Art History (ARTH) and Music (MUED and MUSC) have been added. The majority of courses at the MUSC 6000-level have also been modified in support of changes to the master’s degree in Music Technology.
  • The Walter Maxwell Gibson College of Sciences  updated many of its courses’ prerequisite minimum grades and/or semester sequencing. Three introductory-level Geology courses have been adjusted to share the same co-requisite (optional) lab, and a handful of new courses were added in Construction Management and Engineering to support those programs. Fifteen new courses have been added to the Computer Science and Information Systems offerings, with a few existing courses also undergoing changes. The Department of Nursing  updated several courses for the RN to BSN program in addition to adding 23 new courses for the LPN to BSN degree.
  • A new course on Archives has been added in the Gerald R. Sherratt Library , and several other courses have had credit hours and other particulars adjusted. CONV 2010 is now APEX 2010 .
