Approval of a Minor Change to the BA in Art

Executive Memorandum 13-039

March 15, 2013

From: Paul J. Zingg, President
Subject: Approval of a Minor Change to the BA in Art

Upon the recommendation of the Provost, I approve a minor change to the BA in Art.  This change reduces the number of units for the major from 60 to 48.  In each option, 6 units of electives are being removed.  In the Option in Art Education, the additional 6 unit reduction occurs in the Art Studio Course units and the Art History units.  Each section is being reduced by 3 units.  In the Art History Option, the additional 6 unit reduction occurs in the lower division requirements.  ARTS 122, ARTS 125 and ARTS 126 will no longer be required.  Previously, the student would choose from either ARTH 120 or ARTH 130.  The student will now be required to take both these courses.  In the Art Studio Option, the lower division requirements are being reduced by 3 units.  ARTH 110 was required before, but is being moved to an elective list.  The remaining 3 unit reduction occurs in the upper division Art History section.  This change will be effective Fall 2013.
