  2. Plant Sciences Curriculum • Dean’s Charge (10/26/2010) • The proposed curriculum needs to: • Be attractive to students • Prepare students for future job market • Reinforce our core competency of experiential learning • Increase cross-utilization of courses • Incorporate student learning outcomes • Support University expectations on faculty workload, elimination of under-enrolled majors & course sections

  3. Plans for the New Curriculum • Create Plant Sciences Team from all current PS majors • Develop four(+) options under one Plant Sciences Major • Specializations/concentrations possible & encouraged, but not required • Flexibility of course selections within all Plant Sciences options • Develop & offer co-taught “common core courses” for Plant Sciences majors • Promote existing Minors within the College • Develop new related Minors: Organic Agriculture; Plant Biotechnology, etc.

  4. TIME LINE • January 2011, Plant Sciences team met to develop initial concept for major/options • Met weekly throughout Spring 2011 semester • Late Spring 2011, recommended version for faculty review, feedback, and discussion • Summer 2011, continued meeting bi-weekly • Early Fall 2011, major and curriculum revised and finalized within College • Mid-Fall 2011, submit major for approval • Goal to have approved and ready to offer by 2012-13 Academic Year
