Revision of the Curriculum in Kinesiology, College of Applied Life Studies, Urbana
The Urbana-Champaign Senate has approved revisions in the undergraduate curriculum in Kinesiology offered by the College of Applied Life Studies. The changes within the General Education category reflect an effort to enhance this portion of the curriculum and to meet new State requirements for students pursuing teacher certification. Other changes include the addition of an advanced writing course, the introduction of a computer skills requirement, modifications to the Kinesiology core including the introduction of a senior seminar and a reduction of the number of movement skill courses. The total number of hours for the degree (128) remains the same.
Change in Designation, Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts and Sciences with a Major in Black Studies, Chicago
The Chicago Senate has approved a change in the name of the Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts and Sciences with a major in Black Studies to the Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts and Sciences with a major in African-American Studies. The Black Studies program was established in 1971 and offered the course work leading to the B.A. in Liberal Arts and Sciences with a major in Black Studies. The change in the designation of that program to the Department of African-American Studies was recently approved by the Illinois Board of Higher Education. This change in designation of the degree is not only consistent with the practice of most similar departments in the United States, but is also more indicative to the true nature of the discipline.
