Students graduating Fall 2011 and beyond can take two classes instead of three to satisfy the Theme requirement.
The change follows an affirmative vote of support by the University Academic Senate at its March 4 meeting. Students will be able to incorporate the course reduction when they begin to register on March 21 for the 2011-2012 academic year.
“On behalf of the students at Grand Valley, we appreciate this change,” said Jarrett Martus, president of the Student Senate. “I think a lot of students don’t realize how much their voice counts on campus, so we thank the Provost Office and the rest of campus for allowing students to take an active role in the change.”
The purpose of a Theme is to provide students the opportunity to learn about an idea, event or issue from different perspectives.
Students with questions can contact their advisor.
