The minutes of the meeting of September 19 were corrected to reflect that the committee had additional questions about the BA/BS/MAT proposal from the Department of Biology and would reconsider the proposal when the clarifications from CEHD were available. Additionally, the committee asked if the CML policy on placement testing would apply to transfer students.

Professor Kolers was appointed to represent the committee on the university-wide General Education Committee.

All course actions are effective Fall 2004, unless otherwise noted. Graduate courses/programs must also be approved by the Graduate School.

The proposal for a Social Science concentration in the B.A. in Philosophy was returned to the department for clarification of the Humanities Division requirements in the degree plan.
