New Course Proposals for Spring 2017

The deadline for proposals for new courses to be offered in the Spring 2017 Semester is Thursday, September 1. APSC must take those course proposals to the October Faculty Meeting in order to secure approval for their offering. The new course proposal form, available as a Word document on the committee Website at (http://www.dickinson.edu/info/20061/academic_program_and_standards_committee/771/curriculum_revisions) should be completed and returned to Bonnie Lehman (lehman@dickinson.edu) no later than September 1. An electronic copy should be sent as an e-mail attachment to apsc@dickinson.edu.

Faculty may experiment with a new course by requesting that it be considered a "one-time-only" offering. Such courses require only the approval of APSC, not the entire faculty. In order to give the Committee sufficient information about these courses, however, faculty should fill in the pertinent information on the course proposal form, marking "one-time-only" prominently on the top of the form.
