The proposal is to include in the curriculum an upper-division Special Topics (elective) course in Philosophy. This is meant as an addition to the Philosophy curriculum, and serves a variety of roles for offering upper-level courses to students, especially since the curriculum, as it stands, almost entirely lacks upper-division courses.

Abstract

This proposal adds to the curriculum an elective course focusing on new product decisions. This course will serve as an additional elective to business curriculum (primarily the marketing concentration). Also, it is beneficial to students pursuing careers in new product development and other related fields, as well as students preparing to enter MBA programs.

This proposal also includes changes to the required/elective status of four marketing courses. Appendix E (page 9) shows the changes to the Marketing Curriculum as they would appear in the catalog. The Marketing Curriculum is 18 hours and will remain 18 hours with this proposal. By the addition of this new course (an elective course), four of the current courses will become electives, thereby giving students the choice of four of five marketing electives.
