Undergraduate Curriculum

 

The Undergraduate Curriculum Committee administers the undergraduate curriculum process. The Committee examines and evaluates all undergraduate curricular offerings except general education offerings.

We encourage faculty to meet with us prior to developing proposals so that we may offer guidance throughout the process. Contact us at 606-783-2003 to schedule an appointment. Curriculum proposals must be received by the Committee in sufficient time to be heard by the end of the curriculum cycle.

  • MSU Syllabus Checklist
  • MSU Syllabus Template
  • Undergraduate Degree Curriculum Map Template
  • Use the Routing Signature Sheet to accompany any curriculum proposal form that has not yet been converted to a fillable, signable Adobe .pdf. Routing of a hardcopy document is not currently required.

Additional forms will be added in January 2023.

The Office of Undergraduate Education and Student Success offers individual assistance with the curriculum process. To ensure that you follow the proper path, please get in touch with undergraduate@moreheadstate.edu or call 606-783-2003 to discuss your proposal.

NEW PROGRAM PROPOSAL PROCESS

This process includes multiple steps. Contact the Office of Undergraduate Education and Student Success at 606-783-2003 before beginning.

  • Notification of Intent - The CPE Academic Programs Liaison must post the notification of intent at least 6 months prior to the submission of the pre-proposal.
  • Pre-proposal - The Associate Vice President for Undergraduate Education and Student Success will notify the initiator when the proposal is posted to the CPE website.
  • Full Proposal - Once notified of the proposal being posted to the CPE website, the initiator will begin Step 1 of the full proposal request. 

TYPES OF CURRICULUM CHANGES

  • Minor Revision to Existing Course: This outline will be used to report a minor modification of previously approved courses or programs. Minor changes do not modify course content. If the course content is to be modified, use the New Course or Major Revision to Existing Course Form.
  • New Course or Major Revision to Existing Course: This outline will be used when a new course is proposed, or a major change is proposed to an existing course.
  • New Experimental Course/Workshop: This outline will be used when a course is added to the curriculum for experimental or workshop purposes. To continue to offer the course after the initial three offerings, the department must submit a New Course or Major Revision to Existing Course Form.
  • Course Deletion/Suspension/Reinstatement: This outline will be followed for course deletions, suspensions, or reinstatements.
  • Minor Revision to an Existing Program: This outline will be used to report minor modifications of previously approved programs.
  • Major Revision of Existing Program: This outline will be used for program revisions. Each revised or new course included in the proposal requires a separate proposal. An amended curriculum map must be attached to each Major Revision of an Existing Program proposal.
  • New or Major Revision of a Minor or Certificate: This outline is completed for creating a Minor or Certificate or for a major revision to a previously approved Minor or Certificate.
  • Minor Revision of a Minor or Certificate: This outline is completed for a minor revision to a previously approved Minor or Certificate.
