Proposed curriculum changes to be discussed

Proposed changes in Pitt's undergraduate arts and sciences curriculum are on the agenda of a Faculty of Arts and Sciences meeting scheduled for tomorrow, Feb. 22, 10-11:30 a.m. in 232 Cathedral of Learning.

The open meeting of the arts and sciences curriculum review committee (CRC) will feature discussion of changes in College of Arts and Sciences general education requirements and related administrative changes proposed by the CRC.

The committee's most controversial proposal is to reduce from three to two the number of required natural sciences courses. That and other changes are intended to clarify and reduce general education requirements, thereby letting students replace required courses with electives that would better meet their educational goals and more easily permit them to pursue minors, double majors and certificates.

A summary of the CRC recommendations, along with comments by faculty, are available online at: –Bruce Steele
