The SAS Curriculum Committee reviews proposals for new and revised courses, majors, minors, certificates, and other undergraduate programs of the School of Arts and Sciences. The deadline for submitting proposals usually will be one week before a scheduled meeting.
The Core Requirements Committee (CRC) reviews proposals for the certification of courses for one or more of the Core Curriculum Learning Goals. The deadline for submitting proposals usually will be two days before a scheduled meeting.
The CRC also reviews proposals for minors to be offered to SAS students by academic units that are not SAS departments or programs: see Requirements for SAS Minors.
