b. Request to revise Minor to include an option with language: International Business Minor/International Business Minor w/ Language (attachment) (attachment) – Hold. This item was held due to questions concerning 1 language course is making up for a minor. It was suggested that perhaps 2 language courses would be more suitable. 2 @ the 200 level of a language course of choice. A 24 credit minor was suggested. It was the opinion of the committee that one additional course should not constitute a minor. What is the learning goal was one of the questions as well as what is the difference between these minors. John Madsen will send an email with the committee’s questions, concerns and suggestions.
c. Request to add a Minor: International Business Studies (attachment) (attachment) – Hold. It’s purpose is to encourage students outside the college. Restricted major? This opens up to anyone? What do they view as potential enrollment, what are the projected numbers? Is it typical to add two courses and make it a minor?
d. Request to revise a Minor in Business Administration (attachment) - The revision brings this 39 credit minor down to 18 credits if the student is in the college. If not, then it reduces the number of credits to 22. Would they consider MATH205? Toby suggested simplifying with fundamentals and principles
