Proposed effective date: Fall Semester 1999

Education Policy Studies Minor

PROFESSORS DAVID P. BAKER AND ROGER SHOUSE, in charge

This minor is designed to introduce students to the fundamental tenets of education policy development and analysis in both the U.S. and other countries. Students pursuing the minor may choose from courses on educational policy in the areas of higher education, educational administration, educational theory and policy, Native American education leadership and comparative/international education. The minor consists of a multidisciplinary program of study in areas of education related to numerous policy issues including social sciences, history, management sciences, and/or humanities. It is anticipated that students completing the minor will find these studies can enrich any major degree program and potentially provide opportunities for employment and/or graduate studies in state departments of education, ministries of education, federal and international education agencies, academic institutions, and various professional associations.

This 18 credit minor may be combined with any undergraduate major at Penn State. A grade of C or better is required for all courses taken in fulfillment of the minor. No prerequisites are required for the minor.

APPENDIX C
GRADUATE

 

27-06-080A Add new Master of Software Engineering Program.

 Proposed effective date: Fall Semester 1999

Software Engineering (SWENG)

PROFESSOR DAVID W. RUSSELL, Division Head, Engineering

The Graduate Faculty-Penn State Great Valley
Robert Hartman, Ph.D. (Delaware). Associate Professor, Mechanical Engineering.
Kathryn Jablokow, Ph.D. (Ohio State). Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering.
Eugene Kozik, Ph.D. (Pittsburgh). Associate Professor of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering.
John McCool , Ph.D. (Temple). Associate Professor of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering.
David W. Russell, Ph.D. (C.N.A.A,, London). Professor of Electrical Engineering.
Lily Sehayek, Ph.D. (Rutgers). Assistant Professor of Environmental Engineering.
James Weisbecker, Ph.D. (Temple). Assistant Professor of Computer Science

This professional master's degree program, available at Penn State Great Valley, focuses on various aspects of software engineering. The program is constituted by four, nine-credit modules of study. Each module is designed for in-depth coverage of a specific area of study (e.g. modem software methods, algorithms, information science). Two of the modules are required; one centers around professional, skill-based topics such as software project management, business communications, and includes the option to select a professional paper or the advanced software studio. The second required module comprises nine credits of advanced software engineering course work. Graduate instruction is under the direction of a faculty committee.

Admission Requirements
Requirements listed here are in addition to general Graduate School requirements stated in the GENERAL INFORMATION section of the Graduate Bulletin.
The Master of Software Engineering (M SE) program is designed for students with technical backgrounds. Admission will be granted if the applicant has the necessary program prerequisites and a faculty member in the student's interest area agrees to serve as adviser. Candidates lacking in a modem programming language can meet that requirement by scheduling the 400-level software engineering studio. Scores from the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) are not an entrance requirement unless he or she has a junior/senior grade-point average below 3.00 (on a 4.00 scale). There is no foreign language requirement.
Students with a 3. 00 junior/senior average in an appropriate technical degree program will be considered for admission. The best-qualified applicants will be accepted. Exceptions to the minimum 3.00 grade-point average may be made for students with special backgrounds, abilities, and interests. Entering graduate students for whom English is not their first language are required to have a score of at least 550 on the TOEFL (Test Of English as a Foreign Language) examination.

Program Requirements
All candidates are required to take two required nine-credit core modules, for a total core curriculum of eighteen (18) credits, and two other nine-credit modules. At least fifteen credits of selected courses must be at the 500 level.

27-06-081 Add new Doctoral Minor in Second Language Acquisition Program.

 Proposed effective date: Summer Session 1999

Doctoral Minor in Second Language Acquisition

PROFESSOR SANDRA SAVIGNON, in charge

This interdepartmental Doctoral Minor draws upon the opportunities that various departments offer to study the processes of language acquisition and pedagogy, and to conduct research in these fields. Developments in the theories of language acquisition, the practices in language instruction, and the technical innovations provide a wide range of resources for secondary specializations in second language acquisition theory. The Minor provides an official credential for doctoral students who complete an organized program of study.

The Minor requires a minimum of 15 credits at the 400, 500, or 600 levels (beyond credits used for degree requirements in the student's field of study), consisting of one or two Methodology courses totaling 3 credits and 12 additional credits selected from an interdepartmental list of eligible courses, with approval both by the student's doctoral committee in his or her major field, and by the person in charge of the Minor. A maximum of 6 credits may be taken at the 400 level, and no more than 3 credits of 602 may count toward the Minor. Courses in at least two departments must be included. Further, students must complete at least two semesters' experience in supervised teaching of either a foreign language or ESL, or alternative equivalent practicum if approved by the doctoral committee and the person in charge of the Minor.

In general, students whose major field of study in the Ph.D. is a concentration in foreign language acquisition or ESL are not eligible for this Minor, as their field of specialization already includes this area. However, students in English as a Second Language may do the Minor with a focus on foreign language acquisition or a student with a specialty area in forced language acquisition may complete the Minor with a specialty area in English as a Second Language.
