Motion Introduced by: Curriculum and Academic Programs Committee
Date of First Reading: February 3, 2020
Date of Second Reading: March 2, 2020
Title of Motion: Request from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences – School of International Letters and Cultures – for the name change of a graduate certificate – from: Literary Translation Studies - to: Translation Studies
Action Requested: This curricular proposal has received all college, school, unit and university administrative approvals, and is being presented to the Senate for review and voting decision.
Rationale: The name change to Translation Studies will ensure a higher visibility of the program across ASU's campuses. A Translation Studies certificate reflects the current design of courses in the program which are focused on literary materials but also include a wide range of discursive textual, visual and aural media. Signaling this broader concept in the title will thus make the certificate more appealing to students in arts, communication, education, and international business disciplines.
