There are three Faculty Undergraduate Curriculum Committees: the Humanities Curriculum Committee; the Sciences Curriculum Committee; and the Social Sciences Curriculum Committee. Each Curriculum Committee is responsible for monitoring the content, quality, and requirements of the academic programs, courses of study, and individual courses offered by an academic unit within the Faculty. The Curriculum Committees monitors new courses, programs, and breadth requirements proposed by an academic unit in its respective area. Where suitable, it may also suggest new courses, programs and breadth requirements.
Each Committee reviews and recommends to Council for approval, subject to the approval of the appropriate body of Governing Council, proposals for new undergraduate programs, proposals for the closure of any undergraduate academic programs, and proposals for major modifications to existing undergraduate academic programs. Each Committee reviews and approves, on behalf of Council, proposals for minor modifications to existing undergraduate academic programs. All such approvals are subsequently reported for information to Council.
A joint meeting may be held of all or some of the various committees to consider matters of Faculty-wide importance. The Curriculum Committees meet at minimum once per year, normally by early November, to allow sufficient time for curriculum changes to be published in the Calendar.
Please be sure that a representative such as the department Chair, Undergraduate Chair, Director or Principal attends the meetings if any submission has been made.
