Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
This course will provide students with an advanced understanding of the physiological, psychological, social and cultural aspects of sexual development throughout the lifespan. This includes, but is not limited to, emotional and psychological aspects of sexuality; gender and sexuality; reproductive health and family planning, and the intersections of sexuality and interpersonal relationships. While some cross-cultural information will be included, the main focus will be sexuality in the United States.

The National Council on Family Relations provides certification that is recognized internationally for family life education professions. The Certified Family Life Educator (CFLE) certification demonstrates a professional’s proven background and understanding in each of 10 family life content areas.


NCFR program approval indicates that a curriculum fully covers the 10 family life education content areas required for approval as a Certified Family Life Educator. Approved programs undergo an intensive, external peer-review process to ensure the highest quality coursework for CFLE graduates. The Department of Youth, Family, and Community Sciences offers a CFLE track for YFCS Master’s students.  Human Sexuality is a required course for CFLE certification, as per the NCFR guidelines.  This course is required to meet our accreditation standards.

Division of Academic and Student AffairsChris OusleyHello, I have reviewed the course and it looks great. There are plenty of differences between the two courses in that there is not much overlap. Thanks. (Dept. of Health and Exercise Studies).
This is one of three courses that I teach in the department, as reflected on my SME (20% teaching).

This course will prepare students who are seeking CFLE certification to better understand sexual development across the lifespan and throughout the family life cycle.  This course will provide students with an advanced understanding of the physiological, psychological, social and cultural aspects of sexual development throughout the lifespan.

1) Please note that I removed the email thread that was pasted in this section and added the consultation summary to the consultation field of this form to prevent confusion for the reviewers. You can attach the email thread as an addition attachment if you like, but a note in the consultation field works for our needs.
2) Additional consultation requested from the College of Education and College of Humanities and Social Sciences regarding potential overlap with EDP/PSY 582. Please contact Dr. Lee Stiff (lvstiff@nscu.edu) and Dr. Deanna Dannels (dpdannel@ncsu.edu) to obtain a consultation from each college. Then, add those summaries to the Consultation Summary field in CIM.
3) Student Learning Outcomes should be more measurable than "understand." See Learning Outcomes Guidelines attached under Additional Documentation and update the learning outcomes.
4) Syllabus notes-
-Use the new/proposed course prefix and number
-Are the Blackboard Collaborate sessions required?
-Your note "non-urgent emails will be addressed during office hour times" implies that students should not email you. Perhaps rephrase in a way that encourages them to use your scheduled office hours.
-Include prices for required textbooks.
-Include item 14 from the Graduate Course Syllabus Checklist, attached under Additional Documentation.

cohen 1/28/2018:
On the syllabus, below 60 (not 59) is an F.
As Melissa mentioned above, we definitely need a consultation with the other colleges.
The course has been taught once (Summer 2015) with 6 students. Once the course has been established as 537, I would suggest monitoring the enrollment to see if the course needs to be taught every summer or if the course should be taught on a revised schedule.

ABGS Reviewer Comments 3/7/2018:
-No concerns.
amhardis (Wed, 14 Feb 2018 17:44:31 GMT): Thank you for this review of the course! I have updated the syllabus and attached it with these revisions, including: revisions to the learning outcomes using the new course prefix noting that BB is required (under course requirements) changing the email statement to emphasize office hours including prices for the textbooks adding #14 from the graduate syllabus document updating the grades to note that below 60 is an F I also just received input from the contacts indicated for EDP/PSY 582 and they have stated that they see no overlaps with their course content: Hi Annie, We have evaluated your course offering and have determined that it does not overlap what we offer in the College of Education. All the best, Lee Annie, the syllabus you sent does not conflict or overlap with any offering we currently teach. The EDP/PSY cross-list doesn't appear to have been offered recently and is not active among Psych course offerings. I've forwarded your syllabus to Laura Widman, who is teaching a sexuality course at the undergraduate level, so again, no conflict with your Master's level course. Laura will reach out if there's a happy opportunity do collaborate on something else....mw (Mary Wyer) Finally, in terms of the # of students enrolled, here are the numbers from the last two years: 2016 - 15 students 2017 - 19 students Please let me know what else you need! Best, Annie
amhardis (Wed, 21 Feb 2018 16:25:17 GMT): This is a DE course, but the course approval form is asking me to select that it is in person. I've also been trying to upload the updated syllabus, but have not been able to do that because of this error with the form. Thank you!
mlnosbis (Wed, 21 Feb 2018 17:45:18 GMT): I attached the updated syllabus.
