What research has led to this request?
1) ARTH 250 has a staffing problem. Removing this from the BA will allow our Art History faculty to teach to their major and to the proposed BFA students. 2) ARTS 297 is being phased out of our assessment and a new portfolio assessment has been developed. This will begin fall 2020. The BFA in Visual Art will have a separate portfolio review as well.
What impact will this request have on existing academic programs?
1) Removing ARTH 250 as a requirement will allow more flexibility in the art history curriculum for both the faculty and students. 2) Removing ARTS 297 will allow the foundations coordinator to focus on other classes in the foundations curriculum.
What financial costs are associated with this request?
If NO change in cost is anticipated, how is this possible?
Neither course has a lab fee and faculty will be redirected to other courses in the program.
