Liberal Studies Curriculum Committee
2/11/09, 2:00-3:00, Wygal Hall, Haga Room
The committee voted to change the Program Elective for LSTE (elem), LSTS (sped) and
LSTU (with a minor) by deleting MUSC441 from the list of possibilities and adding “any
Arts and Sciences course at the 300 or 400 level.”
Elective/three (3) credits from the following:
Any Arts and Sciences course at the 300 or 400 level
Reason for the change: Courses are not offered frequently enough and
many course substitutions are made on a regular basis for these
electives. Offering free choice of electives will be more reflective
of the actual practice.
Retroactive from Fall 2006
