The creative writing concentration in English (reference number 662CW) requires a minimum of 38 hours and leads to the bachelor of arts degree. A minor or second major is required. Requirements include English 299, 381, 382, 385, 391, 392, and 413 (capstone, which should be taken in the final semester of coursework); any four of the following courses: ENG 303, 305, 311, 358, 403, and 411; and two electives from department offerings. Note: ENG 203 is a required prerequisite to the upper level creative writing courses and may count as one elective.


The professional writing concentration (reference number 662PW) requires a minimum of 38 hours and leads to the bachelor of arts degree. A minor or second major is required. Requirements include English 299, 381, 382, 385, 391, 392, and 414 (capstone, which should be taken in the final semester of coursework); any four of the following courses: English 301, 306, 307, 401, 402, 412, and 415; and two electives from department offerings. It is strongly recommended that students in the professional writing concentration also complete an internship (369).


4. Rationale for the proposed program change:

Currently, students in the writing concentration take a mixture of professional writing and creative writing courses, and the skills developed in the two kinds of writing courses are different. In an effort to make the writing concentration more attractive, cohesive, and useful, we propose splitting it into two separate concentrations. The will allow for greater focus and in-depth experience in the kind of writing the student wishes to pursue professionally and will increase the value of the degree. As the major stands, the writing students may take any combination of creative and professional writing courses, which can result in a lack of thorough preparation in any one kind of writing.


5. Effective Catalog Year and special provisions (if applicable):

Proposed implementation will be in Fall 2008. Currently enrolled students in the concentration will finish their degrees under the current catalogue requirements.

Proposal to Make Multiple Revisions to a Course

(Action Item)


Contact Person: Sigrid Jacobshagen, Sigrid.jacobshagen@wku.edu, 5-5994


1. Identification of course:


Current course prefix (subject area) and number: BIOL 400

Course title: Plant Physiology

Credit hours: 3


2. Revise course catalog listing:

2.1 Current course catalog listing: A study of the function of plant systems.

2.2 Proposed course catalog listing: A study of the general principles by which plants

function. Three areas discussed are transport and translocation of water and solutes, metabolism with special emphasis on photosynthesis, and plant growth and development.

2.3 Rationale for revision of course catalog listing:

The new catalog listing allows students to better understand the course subject.


3. Revise course credit hours:

3.1 Current course credit hours: 3

3.2 Proposed course credit hours: 4

3.3 Rationale for revision of course credit hours:

The course currently consists of a two-credit-hour lecture and one-credit-hour lab component. The lecture component of the course needs to be increased to a three-credit-hour portion in order to cover the subject appropriately. A student having "Plant Physiology" as a course on his or her transcript is expected to have gained an overview of the entire field of plant physiology. This is possible only with a three-credit-hour lecture component.


4. Proposed Term of Implementation: Spring 2009

1. Identification of proposed course:


Course prefix (subject area) and number: CE 341

Course title: UK-Fluid Thermal Science

Abbreviated course title: UK-Fluid Thermal Science

1.4 Credit hours and contact hours: 4

1.5 Type of course: L

1.6 Prerequisites: MATH 227, and EM 221 or EM 222

1.7 Course catalog listing:


Conservation of fluid mass and momentum, forces in fluids, pipe flow, fluid measurements, pump systems, hydrodynamic drag, open channel flow, and introduction to thermodynamics. Students may not earn credit for both CE 341 and CE 342.


2. Rationale:


Reason for developing the proposed course:


Students in the civil engineering program are required to obtain 16 credit hours in the major from University of Kentucky (UK) faculty members via ITV courses. For the new iCAP system used by the Office of the Registrar for verification of degree completion, each UK ITV course must have a unique course number so that the system can track the total number of ITV credits obtained.


This course replaces ME 362 Thermal Fluid Science, which is being deleted. CE 341 adds emphasis to fluids with an introduction to thermodynamics. This is a required course for all students majoring in civil engineering.


Projected enrollment in the proposed course:


Approximately 30 per year based on current enrollment figures.


Relationship of the proposed course to courses now offered by the department:


Shares some topics (but at a more elementary level) with CE 462, Hydraulic Engineering Systems. CE 462 is a project course aimed more at design while this class will not include a major project, and will emphasize fluid fundamentals.


Relationship of the proposed course to courses offered in other departments:


There is slight overlap of topics with GEOG 427 Water Resources.


Relationship of the proposed course to courses offered in other institutions:


This class is very similar to classes offered at most universities that offer a civil engineering degree. It is identical to CE 341 Fluid Mechanics I offered at UK. It is also similar to CE 370 Engineering Hydraulics taught at the University of Louisville.


3. Discussion of proposed course:


Course objectives:

Students should be able to:


Apply fundamental conservation equations to practical problems

Determine forces in static and moving fluids

Understand fluid friction in real fluids

Determine of flows and pressures in simple pipe networks

Analyze simple pumping systems and select proper pumps

Calculate uniform flow in open channels
