Approved/requested slight revisions:

PUBL401 – Portfolio/Lab Course


I wrote with Jill Eigenbrode and the final PUBH 401 document is attached.
The prerequisites are: 
PUBH 200 and PUBH 301 with a C or higher
AMST 422 with a grade of C or higher
I added the list of UGC approved 400-level courses to the document. I also checked to make sure the 400-level with a C or better would not be a problem since the students would be concurrently enrolled in PUBH 401 (1 credit) and 400-level (3 credits). Jill wrote: “People Soft will recognize that a student is currently in the pre-req course and allow them to register.  The Registrar’s Office then runs a process after the semester is complete and checks the grades to make sure the pre-req is full met.  Therefore you can use AMST 422 with a grade of ‘c’ if you would like.” AMST 422 is the first course on the list… and also AMST’s signature public humanities course.
This is the final edit on the PUBH 401 syllabus. I appreciate you suggesting I check with the registrar’s office. Jill was very helpful and I understand the process better.
I think all edits and documents are in order now. If there is anything else that you need, please let me know.
