Subject: Significant Changes to the BA in Natural Sciences

Upon the recommendation of the Academic Senate and the concurrence of the Provost, I approve Significant Changes to the BA in Natural Sciences.  The major units will increase from 45-47 to 69-73 and the degree designation will change from Bachelor of Arts (BA) to Bachelor of Science (BS).  The current Options in Chemistry, Environmental Science, General Biology, Geology, Human Biology, and Physical Science will all be discontinued and replaced with a new Option in Science Education.  The Option in Science Education will use CSU reporting code 08997 with a CIP code of 13.1316.  These changes will be effective fall 2019.
