Student Learning Outcomes


This course has already been dropped from the LLJ curriculum and therefore has no reason to exist and is no longer offered. Just need to be removed from the catalog. From Spring 2016 action to revise Political Science LLJ subplan ----------- Proposed changes and justification This minor action proposes to collapse the requirements for 16PSBA-16PSLLJ (Bachelor of Arts in Political Science With a Concentration in Law and Justice/Justice System Emphasis) and 16PSBA-16PSLJL (Bachelor of Arts in Political Science With a Concentration in Law and Justice/Law and Theory Emphasis) into a single concentration, 16PSBA-16PSLJ (Bachelor of Arts in Political Science With a Concentration in Law and Justice). The following changes accomplish this purpose: • PS 205 (Law and Justice), which was a required course in 16PSBA-16PSLLJ and 16PSBA-16PSLJL, is removed from the course catalogue. It is replaced by a PS 300+ concentration elective in 16PSBA-16PSLJ; • PS 313 is added to the PS Concentration Electives requirement details list and the PS concentration seminar electives from the discontinued curricula are combined to create the following PS Concentration Seminar Electives requirement details list: PS 307, 308, 309, 313, 320, 361, 415, 418, 445, 462, 506, 507; • The following courses are added to the non-PS concentration elective list: BUS 305, BUS 406/PRT 406, EC 312, HI 324, PHI 312, PHI 375, PHI 420, SOC 430, SOC 445; • The non-PS concentration electives from the discontinued curricula are combined with the additional restricted non-PS concentration electives (above) to create following new list of non-PS concentration electives: AFS 445, BUS 305, BUS 406, COM 420, COM 421, EC 312, HI 324, HI 442, HI 443, HI 444, HI 455, PHI 309, PHI 312, PHI 313, PHI 375, PHI 420, PRT 406, SOC 306, SOC 427, SOC 428, SOC 430, SOC 445; • The concentration seminar electives from the discontinued curricula are combined to create the following Concentration Seminar Electives requirement details list: PS 415, PS 418, PS 445, PS 462, PS 506, PS 507; The justification for the proposed action is twofold. First, PS 205 was supposed to be a foundational class that introduced students to the fundamental themes of the Law and Justice concentration. In administering the curriculum, however, it was never enforced as a prerequisite to taking the other Law and Justice classes and there is no faculty support for doing so in the future. Consequently, the gateway class isn't really a gateway at all. Students often take it at the end of their time in school, after they've already taken all of the other Law and Justice requirements they need. Second, and more important, the original idea behind PS 205 is that it would provide the general theoretical/philosophical context for the Law and Justice concentration, introducing students to the fundamental concepts of "law" and "justice" and related normative themes that would then be picked up -- either implicitly or explicitly -- and developed in the other Law and Justice classes. This is not happening. For the ideal of PS 205 to come to fruition, everyone involved in the concentration would have to have an input into the PS 205 syllabus AND would have to revamp their own courses to match. For a variety of good reasons, academic freedom chief among them, this isn't going to happen. In the end, then, the one course that was supposed to establish some unity to the concentration now stands out as the anomaly. Rather than requiring Law and Justice students to take the class, it makes much more sense to have a seminar or "topics" class that covers similar themes, but in more depth and detail
