Re:              Curriculum Forms: Guidelines and Information for Departmental Curriculum Committees

      This memo contains important information for Departmental Assistants, DCC Chairs and
Department Chairs, Directors and Coordinators with respect to Curriculum proposals to be submitted by
March 31, 2009.


         SUBMISSIONS to Jackie Benson, Curriculum Assistant in the Faculty of Arts Deans’ Office,
          must include:
              DOUBLE-SIDED HARD COPIES of:
                 - the Summary Sheet bearing departmental signatures with courses listed in order of
                 course number from the lowest to the highest number
                 - all consultation forms (Attachments 1, 2 & 3) bearing signatures and dates, placed in
                 order of course number from the lowest to the highest number, clipped together with paper
                 clips (NO STAPLES!)
                 - all Experimental Course Proposals
                 - Do NOT submit hard copies of New Course Proposals, Revisions to Existing
                 Course, Course Deletion Proposals or Changes to Major/Degree Requirements. As
                 signatures are NO LONGER required on these forms, electronic copies will suffice. Do
                 NOT submit hard copies of course outlines.

              ELECTRONIC COPIES of all forms, including attachments and course outlines
               - Create a file folder for each course. Use the course number and proposal type as the
               folder name: e.g., FRIV-2100 New. In this case, the folder would contain the New Course
               Proposal form, the Attachments and the course outline.
               - Identify each document in the file folder with the course number and document type: e.g.
               FRIV-2100 New, FRIV-2100 A1-GERM, FRIV-2100 A2, FRIV-2100 Outline.
               - For Attachment 1 (A1), specify the program consulted: e.g. FRIV-2100 A1-GERM.

                                      Elizabeth Dawes, Ph.D., Associate Dean, Faculty of Arts
                            Ph: (204) 786.9942 FAX: (204) 774-4134 E-Mail:
                                   515 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada R3B 2E9

           - Post all of your file folders on the Department Assistants’ network drive (U). Create
           your own Curriculum folder on the U drive with your program name: e.g., FRIV
           Curriculum. Jackie Benson will then transfer your files to the read-only Curriculum
           - Alternatively, file folders may be submitted to Jackie Benson on a disk.
          All changes or additions to the original submission must be made through Jackie Benson.
          All curriculum proposals should be submitted as a package. Incomplete packages will be

         Use Arial size 10 font on all forms.
         Do not use bold, underlining, italics, or CAPITALIZATION (except for the department
          code which must be capitalized).
         Do not delete any headings from any of the forms (other than to replace department name,
          abbreviation and X credit hour totals with your information on the Summary Sheet).
         Do not indicate N/A or None on any of the forms.

         Departmental curriculum packages must be submitted by March 31, 2009 for publication
          in the 2010-11 Calendar.
         Experimental course proposals are due September 30, 2009 for publication in the
          timetable for Spring 2010 and Fall/Winter 2010-11.

     For INFORMATION, contact one of the following:
          Jackie Benson, Curriculum Assistant in the Faculty of Arts Deans’ Office, 786-9763
          Ken Gibbons, Co-Chair of the Curriculum Planning Committee, 786-9387
          Paul Betts, Co-Chair of the Curriculum Planning Committee, 786-9164


         On each form, the three elements of the course number are indicated separately:
          - the department code: FRIV
          - the 4-digit course number: 2001 (Do not include the credit hours.)
          - the credit hours: 6
         When referring to other courses in the prerequisite statements, calendar description, etc.,
          use the new format: FRIV-2001 (6). Course numbers will appear in the Calendar in this
          - The department code must be capitalized.
          - There must be a hyphen between the department code and the 4-digit number.
          - The credit hours are indicated in parentheses.
         Do not use the old format on any form (e.g., FRIV-2001/6).
         Double-numbered courses must be listed as FRIV-3001 & 4001 (3) rather than FRIV-
          3001/4001 (3).
         Cross-listed courses must be listed as follows:
          - FRIV & SPAM-3001 (3)
          - FRIV, SPAM & TRIV-3001 (3)
          - FRIV-3001 & SPAM-3202 (3) (in cases where the 4-digit number varies from program
          to program)

         A change of course number requires 2 forms: a New Course Proposal and a Course
          Deletion Proposal.
         Do not use the Revisions to Existing Course form for a change of course number.
         Attachment 2: Library Resources and the course outline are not required for such courses.

          Numbers for former courses cannot be reused for new courses, even if the content is the
           same. Consult the list of allocated course numbers to check which ones have already been
           used. Each Departmental Assistant should have a copy of this document. If not, request a
           copy from Jackie Benson.
          Course numbers should be chosen with careful attention to the numbers currently in use
           within the program. Use consecutive numbers wherever possible. A department with
           existing courses numbered 2114 and 2115 would likely select 2116 for a new course in the
           same area of the discipline.
          The first digit indicates the course level. The second digit may be used to indicate an area
           within the discipline. For example, in Psychology, developmental courses are numbered
           X2XX whereas personality courses are numbered X3XX.
          Numbers for cross-listed courses may be identical in each department or program. They
           may also differ when the number proposed by one program is not available in another or
           when each program wishes to respect the logic of its own numbering system.


         Carefully follow the attached examples as a model for formatting.
         A separate form must be used for each course being proposed. (Double-numbered and
          cross-listed courses are considered to be a single course.)

         Any words appearing in red on the electronic version of the form must be replaced by
          departmental information.
         Put information in columns below the headings. Do not delete the headings.
         Experimental courses do not count as additions.
         Include a rationale for any additions, deletions or revisions.

         This form cannot be used for a change of course number. A change of course number
           requires 2 forms: a New Course Proposal and a Course Deletion Proposal.
         Use this form for changes to the calendar description, prerequisites, corequisites,
           restrictions, additional requirements, cross-listing, etc.
         In the proposed calendar entry, highlight the changes with respect to the current calendar
           entry in yellow on the electronic version of the form.

         This form is used to declare a course obsolete.
         Courses may be active, inactive or obsolete. Active courses are currently taught on a
          regular basis. Inactive courses have not been taught for 5 years or more. They do not

              appear in the Calendar but may be reactivated at any time. Obsolete courses do not appear
              in the Calendar and cannot be reactivated. If a department wishes to offer an obsolete
              course, it must be proposed again using a New Course Proposal form and a new course

          Submit a course outline (see below) and Attachment 2: Library Resources. Note: These
            documents are not required if the New Course Proposal form is being completed in order
            to change the course number of an existing course.
          See section II regarding course numbers for new courses.
          If the new course is replacing an existing course, a Course Deletion Proposal is also
          If approved by Senate, the new course will be effective September 1, 2010.

          Experimental courses can only be offered twice over a maximum period of 3 years.
          Submit a course outline (see below) and Attachment 2: Library Resources.
          See section II regarding course numbers for new courses.
          The deadline for experimental course proposals is September 30, 2009.
          If approved by the Curriculum Planning Committee, the new course may be timetabled as
            early as Spring 2010. Experimental courses do not require Senate approval and are sent to
            Senate for information only.

          Provide a detailed schedule of topics and course work using the dates of the current
           academic year. Include the value of each item to be graded.
          It is not necessary to include all of the information required by Senate and/or
           recommended by the Deans (e.g., reference to Academic misconduct, Disability Services,
           office hours).
          For topics courses, provide a sample outline of a possible topic.

          If the course is relevant to several other programs, a separate form must be sent to each
          Include the date (top right).

      ATTACHMENT 2: LIBRARY RESOURCES (maximum of 2 pages)
          This form is not required for topics courses.
          This form must be completed by a librarian.
          Do not submit a complete bibliography of available library holdings. The Curriculum
            Planning Committee does not require such information.

                                                     study of topics in metaphysics.

      This example has 231 words. Too long!         PHYS-2705 (6) COSMOLOGY: SCIENCE FACT TO SCIENCE FICTION
                                                     (Le3) This course gives an introduction to the scientific study of the
                                                     universe as a whole. It encompasses a description of astronomical
                                                     phenomena on the very largest scales and a description of quantum
                                                     physics on the very smallest scales. The most recent discoveries in
                                                     physics will be discussed and applied to cosmological models that vary
                                                     from the well-supported to the speculative. Modern aspects of physics,
                                                     not usually encountered in elementary physics courses, will be covered.
                                                     These topics include the following: the standard scenario for early
                                                     universe evolution; the triumph of big bang cosmology; the hierarchial
                                                     nature of galaxy formation and clustering; the speed-of-light constraint on
                                                     space travel and communication; the paradoxical nature of quantum
                                                     physics; the existence of antimatter; the success of the Special Theory of
                                                     Relativity; the description of gravity using Einstein's General Theory of
                                                     Relativity; the characteristics of neutron stars, black holes, wormholes,
                                                     cosmic strings and other astrophysical oddities; and the logic of
                                                     spacetime topology of higher dimensions, of parallel universes, and of
                                                     time travel. Finally, the course will consider how human beings and
                                                     extraterrestrial lifeforms fit into the overall scheme of things. Throughout,
                                                     reference will be made to how certain aspects of these topics have been
                                                     incorporated (correctly and incorrectly) into science-fiction books,
                                                     television shows, and movies. Although the subjects discussed will be
                                                     conceptually sophisticated, the presentation will require minimal
                                                     mathematical knowledge. This course fulfils the Science Requirement.

                                                     provides an intensive study of modern French syntax. It includes an
                                                     introduction to distributional categories; a functionalist investigation of
                                                     word roles (e.g., caractérisation, complément interne) and verbal
                                                     structures (e.g., diathèse); a detailed study of typical French forms (e.g.,
                                                     impersonal), functions (e.g., aspects) and tenses. It focuses on
                                                     grammaticality and sentence analysis. Simple sentence types and
                                                     complex subordinate clauses are examined, and transformational rules
                                                     as they apply to the French language. Examples are drawn from literary

                                                     Students must be prepared to work some evenings and/or weekends
                                                     outside of scheduled class time in order to accommodate shooting and

                                                     It is strongly recommended that students successfully obtain standing in
                                                     CHEM-1111 (3) and CHEM-1112 (3), or the former CHEM-1101 (6),
                                                     before attempting this course.

      By default, topics courses may only be taken once for credit. If a topics course may be repeated for
       credit, add the following statement to the course description: “This course may be repeated for
       credit when the topic varies.”

      In WebAdvisor, Degree Audit will recognize the distinction between a course repeated for a better
       grade and a topics course repeated for credit with a different topic.

13. Prerequisites

a) PREREQUISITE(S) may be:

      A specific course                             PREREQUISITE: MATH-1101 (6).

                                                     PREREQUISITES: 6 credit hours in 2000-level French Studies language
                                                     courses or permission of instructor.

           The above French Studies prerequisite statement does not list specific courses. It would
              therefore not need to be revised each time a 2000-level language course is added to or
              deleted from the Calendar. However, it does require that courses be classified in the
              calendar entry as language courses, literature courses, etc. so that applicable courses can be
      Do not use or repeatedly in cases where students are required to have one of 3 or more courses.
       Use “one of a, b, c, d or e” rather than “a or b or c or d or e”.

                                                   PREREQUISITES: One of BIOL-1102 (6), BIOL-1103 (6), BIOL-1112 (6), or
                                                   both BIOL-1115 (3) and BIOL-1116 (3).

     Use commas to separate each option when using and and or. (The underlining is used here to draw
      your attention to the use of the commas. Do not use underlining in your prerequisite statements.)
                                                   PREREQUISITES: GEOG-3215 (3), or GEOG-2213 (3) and GEOG-2214
                                                   (3) and permission of instructor, or the former GEOG-2203 (6) and
                                                   permission of instructor.
                                                   PREREQUISITES: GEOG-2218 (3) and GEOG-2219 (3), or the former
                                                   GEOG-2201 (6), or permission of instructor.


     When listing prerequisites for the third course in a series that must be taken in order (FRIV-1001
      (6), FRIV-2001 (6) and FRIV-3001 (6)), do not include the first one as a prerequisite for the third.
      For FRIV-3001 (6), only list FRIV-2001 (6) as the prerequisite.


     Do not use percentages for minimum grades. The Datatel Colleague SIS (Student Information
      System) will not recognize them.
                                                   PREREQUISITE: CHEM-1111 (3) provided a minimum grade of 75 or
                                                   equivalent was obtained in Chemistry 40S.

     Use letter grades only.                      PREREQUISITE: A grade of at least C in MATH-1101 (6).
                                                   PREREQUISITE: BUS-3240 (3) with a minimum grade of C.

     It is clearer to say “A minimum grade of C in x and y” than “x and y with a minimum grade of C”.
                                                   PREREQUISITES: A minimum grade of B in KIN-3501 (3) and KIN-3502 (3)
                                                   or permission of instructor.


     In WebAdvisor, Degree Audit can verify minimum GPA but not the completion of a given
      number of credit hours. Verification of the credit hours completed must be done by the
      department. Answer YES to the question about petitions (the electronic permission forms) if your
      prerequisite statement specifies a number of credit hours.

                                                   PREREQUISITES: Completion of 45 credit hours with a B average.

                                                   of the program.

     Do not include courses that are strongly recommended but not required in the prerequisite

                                                     PREREQUISITES: PHYS-1101 (6). Strongly recommended: PHYS-2105
                                                     (3), PHYS-2106 (3).

      In the near future, most of the formatting of course descriptions for the Calendar will be done
       automatically from the information entered in the Datatel Colleague SIS (Student Information
       System). Free text (i.e., sentences) will only be permitted in certain fields (e.g., the calendar
       description of 100 words maximum).

      For the prerequisite field, only requirements are entered into the SIS. Any additional information
       listed in the Calendar under prerequisites (e.g., recommended courses) that has not been entered
       into the SIS will be lost. Recommended courses should therefore be added to the calendar


      Permission to register may be required from:
           the instructor and/or the Chair
           the Department
           the Honours advisor or Honours Committee
           the Graduate Studies Coordinator

      Permission may serve as:
           a prerequisite WAIVER (or)                         PREREQUISITES: GEOG-1201 (3) or permission of instructor.
           an ADDITIONAL requirement (and)                    PREREQUISITES: 6 credit hours in 2000-level French Studies
                                                               literature courses and permission of Department Chair.

      On the New Course Proposal form, you are asked to answer YES or NO to the question regarding
       the need for students to submit a petition (an electronic permission form) in order to register.
      If permission is a requirement in addition to the prerequisite, answer YES. All students wishing
       to register will then be required to seek permission.
      If permission is granted in the absence of the prerequisite, answer NO. Students who have taken
       the prerequisite course(s) will not be required to seek permission.
      Be sure that you select the right option so that students are not wasting time needlessly seeking
      As stated above, if students are required to have completed a given number of credit hours (e.g.,
       30 credit hours in Physics with a B average), answer YES as verification of the credit hours
       completed must be done by the department.

                                                    (Le3) Several sections of Academic Writing have been linked with
                                                    introductory sections in disciplines such as History, Sociology,
                                                    Administrative Studies, Biology, and Environmental Studies. Students
                                                    who are registered in the discipline-specific courses are also enrolled in
                                                    an Academic Writing course which concentrates on the texts, topics,
                                                    methods of research, and forms of writing appropriate to that discipline.
                                                    These links are managed in different ways from section to section;
                                                    students may wish to consult information available at Registration.

      In many cases, the course listed as a corequisite is actually more desirable as a prerequisite.
       Ideally, the student would have completed the course previously. Having the student take both
       courses concurrently is viewed as an acceptable, although less desirable, alternative.
      The same course cannot be listed as both a prerequisite and a corequisite as in the following
       example because the SIS will not accept such statements:
                                                    THFM-2801 (6) THEATRICAL PRODUCTION I (Le3,La3+V)
                                                    This course is designed to give students a survey of the technical
                                                    aspects of theatrical and media production, concentrating on facilities,
                                                    scenery construction, lighting, and an introduction to sound. Emphasis is
                                                    on basic concepts and hands-on application through practical lab work
                                                    on departmental productions.
                                                    PREREQUISITE OR COREQUISITE: THFM-1001 (6) or THFM-1002 (6).

      If the department decides to list the course as a PREREQUISITE, students can be given
       permission to take the two courses concurrently.

      If the department decides to list the course as a COREQUISITE, students who have taken it
       previously will need departmental permission to register. If approval will be automatic for every
       such student, departments should give Student Records the authority to grant these permissions.

Descriptions of newly approved courses should be emailed to Lois Cherney who will add them to your
calendar entry. Please indicate in red on the hard copy the places where the descriptions are to be added.
Please note that the Wordperfect format will be replaced by Word this summer.

Courses are considered inactive if not offered in the past 5 years (since 2003-04) and not scheduled for
2009-10. Inactive courses will not appear in the 2010-11 Calendar but will remain in the SIS and can be
reactivated within days at any time of year when needed. A list of all inactive courses will be distributed
to each department. Departments will be asked to strike out all inactive courses from the final draft of
their calendar entry.

Course titles, numbers and credit values change. References to courses from other departments/programs
are particularly likely to require updating in your calendar entry. Check if the courses appear on the
inactive course list and look for changes in title, number, etc. Minor changes should be marked in red ink
on a hard copy of your calendar entry and sent to Lois Cherney.

Departments are encouraged to develop a sample degree program for their calendar entry in time for the
2011-12 Calendar. Sample degree programs (suggested programs of study) already appear in the
Calendar for Bioanthropology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Criminal Justice, Dance, and Environmental
Studies. A standardized format will be developed and distributed to departments.
