5.   Full program proposal: Bachelor of Arts in Asian Studies
     Frank Abbott distributed a number of replacement pages showing revisions made to the distributed
     full program proposal (FPP) for a Bachelor of Arts, Major in Asian Studies, which includes foci on East
     and South Asia, and globalization. This multi-disciplinary program is intended to equip graduates with
     cultural literacy to prepare them for various pathways to employment or further education.
     The committee reviewed the FPP and made recommendations for minor revisions.
     It is to be determined if a minor and major can be approved as one proposal as this is the first
     request of its kind at Kwantlen.
     It is expected that Advising would play a major role in helping students with this multi-disciplinary
     program.
