If a course proposal affects catalog language in any way (e.g., if it must be listed in a category of courses counting in a major or other program), the proposal form requires proposers to include marked up catalog language. Here is a Word version of the current catalog. Copy the needed section into the proposal form, and mark-up as noted in the form: Word version of college catalog.

New or Revised Program Proposal Form & Guidelines

Adding a single, new course to a major, minor, or concentration can be done through the Disciplinary Course Proposal Form. If you need to remove a course, add multiple courses, make structural changes, or propose a new program, please use the New or Revised Program Proposal Form.
