Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee (See Appendix 'B')
Faculty of Arts
Dr. Wisenthal presented the report on the proposal from the Faculty of Arts
to offer a Master of Archival Studies degree program.
As reported at the January meeting the proposal had been referred back to
the proposers for reconsideration of the name of the degree. The majority of the
committee did not believe that in the light of existing criteria available at U.B.C.
the Master's designation was justified. They felt that there was no firm basis on
which to recommend the Master's credential and in particular felt that the
program did not build sufficiently on undergraduate preparation to justify calling
it a Master's degree rather than a diploma or bachelor's degree. 7140.
Wednesday,  February  14,   1979.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee
Faculty of Arts (continued)
Dr. Wisenthal stated that the committee had not been concerned with the
question of jurisdiction of Master's degrees in that the proposal was from the
Faculty of Arts rather than the Faculty of Graduate Studies. The committee's
concern was not which Faculty should have control over the degree but whether
the degree should be offered. As far as the desirability of archival studies at
U.B.C. was concerned the proposers had made a very good case for the need and
appropriateness.
Dr. Wisenthal went on to explain that the committee were very clear in their
view that a University should indeed worry about what it called its degrees; titles
should not be used loosely since they were the University's currency and should be
carefully protected.
In comparing the proposed M.A.S. with existing Master's degrees the
committee felt it was not comparable. The courses in the program were not
really graduate courses since they did not build on previous work.
In conclusion the majority of the committee felt that in the absence of policy
at U.B.C. there was no sufficient reason to call the courses graduate courses or to
call the degree a Master's degree. The committee therefore made two
recommendations, one that the proposal be rejected at this time and the other
that a committee be established to recommend criteria for the selection of
credentials for future post-baccalaureate professional programs.
Dr. Wisenthal  )       That  the Master of Archival  Studies program as
Dr. Richards    )       proposed be rejected at this time.
In speaking against the motion Dr. Elder stated that whether the program met
the requirements of Graduate Studies was not a relevant question. The most
important questions were whether the program met the requirements which would
parallel the Master of Library Science which was administered by the Faculty of
Arts, whether there was a need for archivists in Canada and whether this was the
program that would in fact provide the archivists. 7141.
Wednesday,  February   14,   1979.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee
Faculty of Arts (continued)
Material had been circulated at the meeting showing a selection of Master's
programs which were already offered at the University. Dean Will stated that
these degrees were all of a professional nature. While he agreed that the
establishment of some policy was perhaps desirable he felt that there were enough
precedents to show an implicit policy at the University that professional degrees
could in fact be called Master's if there were compelling reasons.
Dean Larkin stated that on the matter of jurisdiction if there were no
bachelor's degrees in the same subjects then the jurisdiction of a Master's degree
may be in a Faculty other than Graduate Studies. In his opinion the appropriate
comparison in this case was the Master of Library Science.
Professor Stokes, Director of the School of Librarianship, was invited to
speak. He noted that the committee had no problems regarding an acceptance of
the necessity of a program in Archival Studies. Referring to Dr. Wisenthal's
statement that the courses in the program were not really graduate courses,
Professor Stokes stated that he himself found it difficult to look at course
descriptions and make the major judgement whether they were graduate courses
or not from the flexible wording in which course descriptions were written. He
also stated that the argument that the program did not build sufficiently on
undergraduate preparation to justify a Master's degree neglected one factor on
which the whole program was based and that was that the entry requirement
would be an honours degree in History from a recognized university which would
have provided some basic awareness of the needs for Archival Studies. Certain
flexibility had been allowed because there could be other areas such as Political
Science or Economic History which could equally well provide a suitable
background for those going to work in Archival Studies with perhaps a particular
accent on Canadian Studies. Professor Stokes concluded by stating that the very
nature of a professional program meant that one had two forces to reckon with;
the entirely academic program and the acceptance by the profession for which the
graduates were being prepared. Not to have gained acceptance by the practising
archivists in what was a new and growing profession in Canada would have made
the University vulnerable to the charge that it was doing nothing but educating
expensively for unemployment.
After further discussion the motion to reject the proposal was put and lost. 7142.
Wednesday,  February  14,   1979.

Faculty of Arts (continued)
Dean Will ) That the proposal of the Faculty of Arts to offer a
Dr. Elder  ) Master of Archival Studies (M.A.S.) degree program

In reply to a query it was confirmed that admission requirements for
post-baccalaureate programs did not go through the Senate Admissions
Committee.
Concern was expressed regarding item (b) of the admission requirements
which states that candidates must possess a "promise of superior professional
performance as attested by letters of reference and a personal interview.".

The Chairman suggested that the statement concerning a personal interview
could be clarified in the information sent out to applicants.

Admissions Committee
School of Architecture
The following proposed revisions to admission requirements were referred to
the Admissions Committee at the December 13, 1978 meeting:
The Admissions Committee of the School of Architecture requires that
students entering the program should demonstrate interest and potential in the
broad field of the creative arts and architecture. Prior instruction and experience
in the arts, crafts, or other design oriented activities, with emphasis on visual
communication in various media, is extremely valuable. Similarly the selection of
university courses covering a broad range of studies in the Arts, Humanities and
Social Sciences on the one hand and the Physical and Applied Sciences on the
other, offers a desirable breadth and mix of academic experience. Irrespective of
specific degree requirements within various faculties or universities, the School of
Architecture considers it desirable that entering students possess both
Mathematics (including introductory Calculus) and English (Literature and
Composition) at the level of first year university.
For students seeking general information and guidance in preparation for
entry to the School a note entitled "Information for Prospective Students" is
available on request at the School office. Prospective students are encouraged to
establish contact with the School during their pre-architecture years by arranging
for interviews and counselling with faculty, by attendance at public presentations
of student work, and by informal contact with students and recent graduates and
participation in student-sponsored activities.
Application for admission to the School of Architecture as a candidate for the
degree of Bachelor of Architecture must be made through the Office of the
Registrar on the appropriate form. All applications must be accompanied by
official transcripts in duplicate showing the applicant's complete academic record
including evidence of an appropriate degree. Applicants who have not completed
degree requirements in time to satisfy application deadlines established herein, or
who may be currently enrolled in university courses, must postpone their
application until the following or a later academic year.
The academic requirements for admission to the School of Architecture are:
I. Completion of a baccalaureate degree at The University of British Columbia,
or at another recognized college or university, following a broadly based
program of studies in:
(a) the Arts, Social Sciences, Humanities, and/or

the Admissions Committee of the School. Applicants in this category must
specify this intention in their application and must demonstrate that their
experience and accomplishments relevant to architecture will compensate for any
deficiencies in their academic record.
The University reserves the right to reject applicants for admission on the
basis of their overall academic records even if they technically meet entrance
requirements and to limit enrolment if its facilities and resources are inadequate.
