Motion Introduced by: Curriculum and Academic Programs Committee
Date of First Reading: March 2, 2020
Date of Second Reading: March 30, 2020
Title of Motion: Request from the College of Health Solutions – for the name change of an undergraduate degree – from: BS in Nutrition - to: BS in Nutritional Sciences
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: We are requesting that the BS in Nutrition degree program be renamed as the BS in Nutritional Sciences to better align with the goals of the college, student outcomes for career and life success, and to provide a path towards graduate training in nutrition and other health-related fields. At this time, the nutrition program does not have a designed path towards nutrition graduate programs. Implementation of this new degree title (along with new proposed courses) will achieve this.
