SPCH to COMM Conversions (after Summer 2016)

SPCH-201, SPCH-202, SPCH-203, and SPCH-132 have not yet been converted to COMM courses, so those courses will continue to be taught in the SPCH Department for Summer and Fall 2016 (and possibly Spring 2017, depending on when the faculty get the converted courses approved). SPCH-132 will appear in the 2016-2017 catalog (Special Projects courses don’t appear in the catalog).

SPCH-114A1 and SPCH-114A2 are in the process of being deactivated, but will appear in the 2016-2017 catalog since those courses were not deactivated by the December 2015 Curriculum Committee meeting.
