For more information, see Guidelines for Developing Program Objectives, Course Objectives, and Learning Outcomes: . The program outcomes will not change, except to add the IS outcomes. The outcomes we have expected of the course in terms of cinema studies will remain. RATIONALE: Explain why this change is being made. Address the connection with institutional mission, and/or department, program, and course objectives. Meeting the Integrative Studies criteria in these redesigned courses will not interfere with our faculty being able to give the students what they must know in these two foundation courses in Film Studies. Therefore, we in Film Studies will be able to meet our obligations to prospective Film Studies majors by this change, and also satisfy our desire to take part in the Integrative Studies program, and allow Keene State College students to study film from the IS perspectives. RESOURCES: Indicate whether additional staffing, facilities, and/or equipment will be required. Also, consider the long-term impact of adding a course or altering a program. When a proposal has staffing, space or monetary implications, the VPAA must be consulted and his or her comments should be included in this section. No staffing changes will be required. What additional library resources will be required? Has the library been consulted to determine the adequacy of library holdings or to estimate the cost to improve these sufficiently? 4 No additional library resources are needed. ADVISORY OPINIONS: List the names of affected departments and include department responses. Advisory opinions are required whenever a proposal affects the curricula of other programs. A proposal must list all affected departments. An Advisory Opinion must be solicited at least two weeks prior to delivery of the proposal to the DCC. Affected departments have two weeks to respond to the request for an Advisory Opinion. Responses should be attached to the proposal. In the event that affected departments do not respond, evidence of the request for an Advisory Opinion from non-respondents must be provided. (The electronic curriculum review process tracks votes, advisory opinions and comments as required at each stage of the review.) These changes do not affect any other departments; hence, no advisory opinions are sought. Updated 28 October 2004.
