  3. Old Business
    1. Charlotte Mueller
      1. Miscellaneous: Consideration of adding MUSI 1301 to Core (1005)
        1. Tabled from September Meeting
          At the last Field of Study Advisory meeting Dr. Mueller attended they had a list of courses they planned to discontinue. One of them is the MUSI 1301 which will leave MUSI 1303, which is to be brought forward later in the meeting for proposal for Core Curriculum.
          Since (1005) & (1034) overlap one another, (1034) needs to be brought up to the front and provide with (1005) & (1034) together. No objections to moving (1034).
          Consideration of adding MUSI 1303 to Core (1034)
          MUSI 1303 already exists, just needs to be designated as Core and MUSI 1301 is being removed by the State. These changes will be in effect for 2017-18 academic year.
          Each item needs to be taken separately.
          Steward Edwards motioned to approve (1034); seconded by Rod Hellyer. Motion passes unanimously.
          MUSI 1301 (1005) is to be withdrawn.
  4. New Business
    1. Gregory Lattier
      1. Change/Update Deg/Cert Plan: Business – Marketing (1001)
      2. Change/Update Deg/Cert Plan: Business – Entrepreneurship (1002)
        Paul Allen proposed to table (1001) & (1002) until the November meeting. Dr. Lattier is proposing to add IMED 2315 a Web Design II course that also has a pre-requisite of IMED 1316. There needs to be more discussion on that and that it does impact Huntsville. Huntsville offers the same Certificate and Degree. There may be issues of having to buy new textbooks; software; is it an internet based course that requires a website. There needs to be a meeting for not only these two certificates but also for the two or three that do not have sufficient hours to qualify for Pell Grant funding. (They are 15 hours instead of 16 hours.) The solution may be to go back and add that we need to add an additional course to those two or three certificates and also consider if there is an opportunity to put an either/or course in here that will work for campus as well as Huntsville.
    2. Lauren Grous
      1. Change/Update SCH: Engineering Mechanics – Statistics (1004)
        Tabled until November meeting.
    3. Samuel Ortallano
      1. Change/Update Deg/Cert Plan: Sound Reinforcement Technology (1006)
        Karen Guthmiller motioned to change the Degree/Certification Plan; seconded by Dr. Charlotte Mueller.
        This is not a mandated change. It is essentially three related courses that are having trouble making, they all cover the same topics, so they are all going to combined all the students into the same class even though they are working on different certificates. Essentially making a “Pool” official. They have the same credit hours. It impacts the certificate by reducing it by 3 credit hours.
        Motion passed unanimously.
      2. Change/Update Course Requisite: MUSC 1331 (1007)
        The removal of a pre-requisite MUSI 1301 or 1311 to a course MUSI 1331 that was removed. The effective date was left blank, it will be Fall 2017.

      4. Replace Course: ITCC 2479 to ITCC 2413 (1012)
