-9- L. Academic Degree Recommendation {AACR 2) Ms. Brown explained the background of AACR 2. The Department of Behavioral Science is establishing a Ph.D. in Clinical and Translational Science to support intellectually rigorous research education, training, and career development of Clinical and Translational Science scholars at the University of Kentucky. The Ph.D. in Clinical and Translational Science is an interdisciplinary training program. Scholars enrolled in the program will have completed tenninal professional training in interdisciplinary programs, and the curriculum reflects the rigorous training that scholars will have completed prior to enrolling in the program. The Ph.D. in Clinical and Translational Science is an interdisciplinary training program. Scholars enrolled in the program will have completed terminal professional training in interdisciplinary programs, and the curriculum reflects the rigorous training (e. g., medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, nursing, public health) that scholars will have completed prior to enrolling in the program. On behalf of the Academic Affairs Committee, Ms. Brown recommended approval of AACR 2. Dr. Brockman asked for a second of her motion, which was supplied by Ms. Curris. The motion passed without dissent. (See AACR 2 at the end ofthe Minutes.) M. Change in Degree — College of Agriculture {AACR 3) AACR 3 is a change in degree for the College of Agriculture. In 2008, the University of Kentucky Natural Resource Conservation and Management (NRCM) undergraduate program was reviewed by an extemal committee appointed by the Dean ofthe College of Agriculture. One key recommendation of the extemal review committee was to revise the NRCM curriculum. The June 2008 Extemal Periodic Review report recommended ‘“the steering committee and other UK faculty work together to develop a set of more well-integrated courses that would better train students in the particular knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to succeed in enviromnental science and policy careers.” The curriculum has been revised based on input from the NRCM Steering Committee and stakeholders. The curriculum has been restructured to provide better focused and more integrated study of specific natural resource and environmental science topic areas, explicitly related to a student’s selection for the required intemship or research experience. Because of the growing interest by students in environmental sciences and the addition of environmental science topic areas, the college proposes to change the name of the NRCM program to Natural Resources and Environmental Science (NRES). Ms. Brown moved for approval of AACR 3 and was seconded by Ms. Brothers. The motion passed without dissent. (See AACR 3 at the end of the Minutes.) N. Change in Degree — College of Communications and Infonnation Studies {AACR 4) Ms. Brown introduced AACR 4, a change in degree for the College of Communications and Infonnation Studies. It recommends approval of a change in the name ofthe Bachelor of Arts/ Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Telecommunications to Bachelor of Arts/ Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Media Arts and Studies, effective in the spring of 20l l. She explained that the current name ofthe program, Telecommunications, has always been rather opaque to prospective students. It is not a tenn they are generally familiar with, and does not help to convey the true nature ofthe program. Thus, the name change to Media Arts
