Approval of Significant Change to the BA in Philosophy

Executive Memorandum 15-018

December 9, 2015

From: Paul J. Zingg, President

Subject: Approval of Significant Change to the BA in Philosophy

Upon the recommendation of the Interim Provost, I approve a significant change to the Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy.  This change simplifies the Philosophy program by discontinuing the General Option and the Pre-Graduate School Option and replacing them with one BA program with no Options.  This change was motivated by feedback from the five-year program review and will offer students more flexibility in program content. The number of units will change from 33-42 to 36.  This change will be effective Fall 2016.
