Approval of a Minor Change to the Option in Legal Studies within the BA in Political Science

Executive Memorandum 12-015

February 7, 2012

From: Paul J. Zingg, President

Subject: Approval of a Minor Change to the Option in Legal Studies within the BA in Political Science

Upon the recommendation of the Provost, I approve a minor change to the Option in Legal Studies within the BA in Political Science.  This change will eliminate the five advising patterns due to low enrollment and interest in four of the five patterns.  The schedule of classes for the pattern with the highest enrollment, the Paralegal Studies Pattern, will be incorporated in the Legal Studies Option.  The number of units for the option will change from 29-36 to 35-36.  This change will be effective Fall 2012.
