FALL 2000 Revised Report of the UO Committee on Courses

Passed by University Senate, November 29, 2000 and revised January 23, 2001



The body of this report consists of two major sections:  Proposed Course Changes for Fall 2001 (unless stated otherwise) and Other Curricular Matters.  Changes in undergraduate courses for group-satisfying status or multicultural status are listed in the main body of this report.  Policies and definitions governing group and multicultural status are listed in the main body of this report.  Policies and definitions governing group and multicultural general-education requirements are under Other Curricular Matters.


Grading, repeatability, sequence.  Unless indicated otherwise, courses may be taken either pass/no pass or for letter grades.  P/N only or Graded only indicates that all students must take the course as specified in the bold print.  Separate grading options for majors are bracketed in this report and appear in UO class-schedule notes; they are not printed in UO catalogs.  R after course credits means that the course number may be repeated for credit.  “Sequence: after the description means the courses must be taken in numerical order.  Changes in grading option, course description, pre- and corequisites, conditions of repeatability, and instruction type are not necessarily included here.




The Committee on Courses offers the following reminders:


ü      If there is any question that as proposed new or changed course might duplicate coverage in an existing course from another department or school, the proposing department must gain written confirmation that the other department has been consulted and does not object to the new or changed course.


ü      According to University Senate legislation, courses submitted for group-satisfying status must be submitted to the College of Arts and Sciences Curriculum Committee.  CAS departments submit them directly to that committee; academic departments in professional schools and colleges submit them to their own dean’s office, which submits approved proposals to the CAS Curriculum Committee.  That committee reviews all group-satisfying proposals before passing them on to the UO Committee on Courses.


ü      Proposals for undergraduate group-satisfying and multicultural courses must include written justification, regardless of whether they are new or existing courses.


ü      Courses may not be both group-satisfying and repeatable for credit.


ü      Proposals for new courses should be accompanied by full syllabi.


ü      For 400-/500-level courses, both proposal forms and syllabi must state explicitly the substantive and measurable differences in type and amount of work for the two levels.


ü      Changes in University Senate-approved UOCC reports take effect the following fall term unless requested by a department and stated otherwise in the report.


ü      At its May 1998 meeting, the University Senate agreed that the University Committee on Courses should include in its reports courses that should be dropped because (1) they have not been taught for three years and (2) the department provided no reasonable explanation of why they have not been taught or whether they will be in the future.


November 29, 2000:  University Senate considers fall 2000 report of the University Committee on Courses.

January 23, 2001:  Committee on Courses issues revised fall 2000 report.

July 2001:  Publication of 2000-2001 University of Oregon Catalog.





The University of Oregon Committee on Courses moves that Proposed Changes for Fall 2001 (unless otherwise stated) and Other Curricular Matters be approved.  If approved, they take effect fall 2001 unless stated otherwise.  Changes in this report will first appear in the 2001-2002 UO Catalog.

New Policies for pre-CIS Requirements and Major Admission to the CIS Major


Pre-CIS Requirements

New students planning to major in Computer and Information Science enter the University as pre-CIS majors.  In order to be formally admitted as CIS majors, students must fulfill the following requirements:


(1)  Complete the pre-CIS core with grades of C- or better.  The pre-CIS core includes the following five courses:  CIS 210, 211, 212 (Computer Science I, II, III) and MATH 231, 232 (Elements of Discrete Mathematics).


Note:  While MATH 233 is not part of the pre-CIS core, it is required for the major in CIS.  This course is not included in the pre-CIS requirement for coordination with the MACS major and CIS minor (MATH 233 is not required for these programs).


(2)  Achieve a GPA of 2.6 or better in the five pre-CIS core courses.  At most one retake will be allowed with all earned grades factored into the GPA.


Application to the Major

Students must be admitted to the major to earn a degree in Computer and Information Science.  After completing the pre-CIS requirements, students must submit a formal application for admission to the Computer and Information Science Department.  Applications are due by the end of the second week of class during fall and winter terms.


Transfer and Second Baccalaureate Students

Students who have completed the equivalent of the pre-CIS core at another institution and satisfied the above GPA and grade requirements will be given provisional admission to the major.  Full admission will be granted after completion of two additional courses at UO that are required for the major, with a GPA of 2.6 or better.  These courses shall be selected in consultation with a CIS advisor.  Students who do not satisfy the pre-CIS requirements will be classified as pre-CIS.


Major in Good Standing

After admission to the major, students must complete all courses with grades of C- or better.  A student who receives two grades below C- in the upper division core courses, will be removed from the major.  The upper division core courses are CIS 313, 314, 315, 415, 422, 425.


Mathematics and Computer Science Majors, CIS minors

Students majoring in MACS must fulfill the same GPA and grade requirements for the pre-CIS core.  CIS minors are not subject to the above requirements.

Policy for Dropped Courses effective Fall term 2000


As recommended by the curriculum committee in 1994-95, and subsequently endorsed by the Undergraduate Education and Policy Coordinating Council (now the Undergraduate Council), the Office of the Registrar sent each department in June 1999, a report listing all courses that had not been offered during the previous three years.  Departments were asked to respond with corrections, explanations for keeping the courses, or plans to drop the untaught courses in 2000-01.


At its May 1998 meeting, the University Senate agreed that the University Committee on Courses should include in its preliminary reports courses that should be dropped because (1) they have not been taught for three years and (2) the department has provided no reasonable explanation to retain the course in the catalog.


Departments are reminded that courses may be reinstated within three years of their drop dates by submitting a Notification to Reinstate a Dropped Course form (see form attached at the end of this document).


Prior Notification:

In addition to the notification from the Office of the Registrar directly to the department chair, faculty notification of the three-year course drop policy has been submitted to the University Senate and approved in the minutes of spring term 1999, fall term 1999, winter term 2000 and spring term 2000.


In each of these notifications over a period of 12 months, the faculty have been notified that beginning fall term 2000 the three-year automatic drop policy will be implemented.


Procedure adopted by the Committee on Courses effective fall term 2000:


1)     A list of the courses not offered in the past three years will be sent from the Office of the Registrar directly to the academic department during the winter term.

2)     The academic department is required to respond by the end of the spring term for submission to the Committee on Courses in the fall term.  The responses to the list of not taught courses should be sent directly to the Office of the Registrar.

3)     Departments that do not respond to the report will automatically have their courses dropped from the curriculum.

4)     Departments that wish to have some or all of their courses on this list remain in the catalog must do the following: submit a request in writing to retain the course by providing (a) the term the course will be taught and (b) the name of the faculty who will be responsible for teaching.  The course must be taught during the present or the next academic year.

5)     Departments may easily and quickly reinstate any dropped course anytime within the three following years by utilizing the Notification to Reinstate a Dropped Course form.

The Notification to Reinstate a Dropped Course, like the emergency procedure, allows a department to offer the course immediately conditional upon the following:   (a) there has been no change made to the course, and (b) the course was dropped no more than three years previously.  The form is to be sent simultaneously to (1) the Registrar for inclusion in the schedule of classes and the Banner catalog file, and (2) the Provost’s Office (specifically to the Curriculum Coordinator) for submission to the Committee on Courses for inclusion in the next curriculum report.



The following courses were DROPPED by action of the Committee on Courses. These courses have not been taught for three years or more. The faculty has recommended that permanently numbered courses be offered at least every other year to avoid misrepresentation of course offerings to prospective students, and ensure that required courses are readily available to current students.

The following criteria were proposed by the Undergraduate Council and the College of Arts and Sciences Curriculum Committee.  The University Senate approved them in May 1998.


1.     Group-satisfying courses proposed by departments or individual faculty members must be reviewed by both the College of Arts and Sciences Curriculum Committee and the University Committee on Courses before submission to the University Senate.


2.     Group-satisfying courses must be numbered at the 100, 200, and 300 levels.  Lower-division courses must be offered annually and upper division courses at least biannually.  Approved courses must be at least 4 credits each [Senate Resolution US 9900-6, February 9, 2000].


3.     No more than three courses with the same subject code may be counted by a student as satisfying group requirements.


4.     Group-satisfying courses in art and letters, social science, and science must meet the following criteria:


a.  Group-satisfying courses in arts and letters must create meaningful opportunities for students to engage actively in the modes of inquiry that define a discipline.  Proposed courses must be demonstrably liberal in nature and broad in scope.  Though some courses may focus on specialized subjects or approaches, there must be a substantial course content locating that subject in the broader context of the major issues of the discipline.  Qualifying courses will not focus on teaching basic skills but will require the application or engagement of those skills through analysis and interpretation.


b.  Group-satisfying courses in the social sciences must be liberal in nature rather than professionally oriented or devoted in substantial measure to the performance of professional skills.  They must cover a representative cross-section of key issues, perspectives, and modes of analysis employed by scholars working on the subject matter addressed by the course.  The subject matter of the course will be relatively broad (e.g., involving more than one issue, place, or time).  Courses with emphasis on methods and skills will satisfy the requirement only if there is also a substantial and coherent theoretical component.


c.  Group-satisfying courses in the sciences should introduce students to the foundations of one or more scientific disciplines, or provide a scientific perspective on a major problem facing society, or provide an introduction to scientific methods (including the use of mathematics and computers) used within or among disciplines.


5.     In particular:


        a.  Courses designed primarily for majors are not excluded a priori from group status.


b.  Courses in methods or statistical analysis are excluded in the social sciences, but courses in theory construction are acceptable.


c.  Laboratory courses are not excluded from group-satisfying status in the sciences.


d.  Qualifying courses in arts and letters cannot focus on teaching basic skills, so first-year German, for example, could not qualify for group status, but reading Goethe in German might.




Category A:  American Cultures.  The goal is to focus on race and ethnicity in the United States by considering racial and ethnics groups from historical and comparative perspectives.  Five racial or ethnic groups are identified: African American, Chicano or Latino, Native American, Asian American, European American.  Approved courses deal with at least two of these groups in a comparative manner.  They do not necessarily deal specifically with discrimination or prejudice, although many do.


Category B:  Identity, Pluralism, and Tolerance.  The goal is to gain scholarly insight into the construction of collective identities, the emergence of representative voices from varying social and cultural standpoints, and the effects of prejudice, intolerance, and discrimination.  The identities at issue may include ethnicities as in the American Cultures category, as well as classes, genders, religions, sexual orientations, or other groups whose experiences contribute to cultural pluralism.  This category includes courses that analyze the general principles underlying tolerance, or the lack of it.


Category C: International Cultures. The goal is to study world cultures in critical perspective.  Approved courses either treat an international culture in view of the issues raised in Categories A and B­­—namely, race and ethnicity, pluralism and monoculturalism, and/or prejudice and tolerance—or explicitly describe and analyze a world-view—i.e., a system of knowledge, feeling, and belief—that is substantially different from those prevalent in the 20th-century United States.
