Salkeld as student representative for the Faculty of Science for the remainder of
the one-year term ending March 1977. 6676.
Wednesday, December 15, 1976.
Minutes of the previous meeting
Dr. McGregor ) That the minutes of the Third regular meeting
Dr. Moyls ) of Senate for the Session 1976-77, having been
circulated be taken as read and adopted.
Dean Bates referred to a statement he made at the previous meeting to the
effect that the Residency Training Programs had been approved by Senate.   He
explained that the statement was not quite correct.   Senate had approved two motions,
one that the courses offered in the Postgraduate (Residency) Training Programs be
listed in the Calendar, the other recommended the establishment of a committee to
review the Postgraduate (Residency) Training Programs of the Faculty of Medicine
to assure Senate of the academic nature and quality of these offerings.   The committee
had not yet submitted its report to Senate.
The motion was put and carried.
From the  Board of Governors
Notification of approval   in principle of Senate recommendations - subject, where
applicable, to the proviso that none of the programs be implemented without formal
reference to the President and the formal agreement of the President;   and that the
Deans and Heads concerned with new programs be asked to indicate the space
requirements, if any, of such new programs.
(i)        B.Ed. 5-year Major in Special Education recommended by the Faculty of
Education   (P. 6656 & 6668-73)
(ii)      New courses recommended by the Faculty of Education   (P. 6673)
(iii)     Changes in Mathematics Concentration and Major in the Elementary and
Secondary divisions recommended by the Faculty of Education   (P. 6673-4)
(iv)     New courses recommended by the Faculty of Graduate Studies   (P. 6674)
(v)      Amendments to regulations on supplemental examinations and proposals for
possible time limit on course credit recommended by the Faculty of Arts
(P. 6658-60) 6677.
Wednesday, December 15, 1976.
Committee on Prizes,  Scholarships and  Bursaries
Dean Lysyk   ) That the new awards listed in Appendix 'A ' be
Dean Riedel   ) accepted subject to the approval of the Board
of Governors, and that letters of thanks be sent
to the donors.

Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee
Faculty of Arts   (See Appendix 'B')
The committee recommended approval of all items submitted by the
Faculty of Arts, the School of Home Economics and the School of Librarianship,
with the exception of Home Economics 422.   This item was withheld pending
clarification of the statistical background required by students entering this
course.   It was also recommended that Chemistry 110 be deleted from the list
of First Year courses in the Division of Family Sciences since it was unlikely
that students would have the co-requisites required for this course.    It was
noted that Home Economics 230 listed under the Division of Family Sciences,
Second Year, had not yet been approved by the Faculty of Arts.
Attention was drawn to Home Economics 203 and the statement that
students would not get credit for both 203 and 305/307.    Dr. Finnegan
expressed concern at this restriction.   It was agreed that the Faculties of
Arts and Sciences should discuss this matter with a view to the possibility
of changing the restriction.
Attention was also drawn to the title of a new course Creative Writing 403
Writing for Children.   It was suggested that the title was unclear and that 6678.
Wednesday, December 15, 1976.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee
Faculty of Arts   (continued)
"The Writing of Children's Literature" would be more appropriate.   Senate
agreed that the Faculty of Arts and the Department of Creative Writing be
informed of this suggestion.
Faculty of Education    (See Appendix 'B')
The committee recommended approval of the Collaborative Program
for Professional Development, new courses, and course and curriculum
changes submitted by the Faculty of Education with the exception of a new
course Education 339 Canadian Studies  in the Curriculum.   The committee
felt that since all the students entering the course would have a substantial
background in the disciplinary area relating to Canadian Studies, particularly
History, Geography and the Social Sciences, much of the material presented
in the course would be redundant and therefore the course did not justify H
units of credit within the Faculty of Education.
It was noted that the Faculty of Education had withdrawn the proposal
to change the title and description of Education 493.   The committee also
recommended that the description of Education 415 be changed to read "Aims
to prepare teachers of the visually impaired to teach blind students to become
independent readers with Optacon and other electronic reading devices as
they are developed".
Faculty of Medicine   (See Appendix 'B')
The committee recommended approval of a new course Pathology 401
and a change in the number and title of General Medicine 445 to Oral Medicine 448 6679.
Wednesday, December 15,  1976.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Curriculum Committee
Faculty of Medicine   (continued)
General Medicine.   Dr. Runeckles explained that General Medicine 445 had
been omitted from the Calendar since 1974-75 due to the fact that there was
another course with the same number, Oral Medicine and Oral  Diagnosis,
and the computer would not accept two Dentistry courses with the same
number.   This change has also been approved by the Faculty of Dentistry.
The committee recommended that approval of the following items be
withheld pending statistical evidence concerning the failure rate of students
who did not obtain a second class average: -
1. The addition of a statement to the description of Biochemistry 402 to
the effect that at least a second class average in Biochemistry 300 is
recommended.    (Approval of the same proposal from the Faculty of
Science was withheld at the October meeting of Senate.)
2. The proposed Calendar statement that a student is required to obtain
a second class standing in Chemistry 203 prior to entering the Third
Year of a Majors or Honours program in Biochemistry.
Faculty of Science   (See Appendix  'B')
All items submitted by the Faculty of Science were recommended for
approval with the exception of Oceanography 310 which required approval
by the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
Dr. Runeckles   ) That the proposals submitted by the Faculties of
Dr. Richards      )        Arts, Education, Medicine and Science,  with the
exception of the items noted, be approved.
Carried 6680.

Reports of Committees of Senate    (continued)
Budget Committee
Dr. McDowell presented the report which had been circulated for information.
Dr. McDowell explained that the committee had been established, in accordance
with section 37 (e) of the Universities Act, to meet with the President and assist
him in the preparation of the University budget.
It was stated in the report that since no indication was given as to what the
duties of the committee might be, a considerable number of discussions were
undertaken to try to establish a role which would enable the committee to carry
out the expressed function outlined in the Universities Act.   Much consideration
had been given to the items about which the President might wish to consult the
committee and also there had been lengthy discussions concerning the details of
the budgeting process which should be made available to the committee to enable
it to provide satisfactory and considered advice to the President.
It was felt that if the committee were to be an informed source and give
reasonable balanced advice to the President, it would have to have extensive
statistical and budgetary data not only on a faculty basis but also at the
departmental level in various faculties.   Because of the large amount of work
which seemed likely to come before the committee it was decided that it would
not review the capital budget and building priorities.
The committee expressed concern with regard to positions where salaries
allocated for vacant academic position slots were not adjusted at the time of
general salary increases.   Timing of a resignation (before or after the salary 6681.

adjustment) affected the following year's budget in a Department or Faculty.
This could have an adverse effect on the ability of the Department or Faculty in
recruitment.  With regard to non-recurring equipment expenditures it was stated
that although individual items may be non-recurring there was a recurring
requirement for new equipment, the maintenance of existing equipment and the
replacement of obsolete equipment and facilities.   The committee felt that the
budget for these items was inadequate and that future budget estimates should
include allowances for equipment, etc.
With regard to budgetary implications for new programs the committee had
requested the Chairman of the Senate Curriculum Committee to refer to the Budget
Committee all new programs with major budgetary implications, and any cases
where a Department or Faculty was seeking 6 or more units of new courses.   Two
programs which had not been approved for publication in Calendar (1976-77)
were the M.Sc. in Dental Science and the Ph.D. program in the Department of
Theatre.
The report also outlined some of the difficulties experienced by the committee
due to the establishment of the Anti-Inflation Board, to the declared intention of
the Minister of Education to require universities in E3ritish Columbia to bring all
their budget items into line with the fiscal year which begins on the 1st of April,
and to the directive that universities should operate without the expectation of
an increasing flow of operating funds.   Those events made it necessary to conduct
an extensive review of the proposed budget for the 1976-77 academic year.   As a 6682.

Reports of Committees of Senate
Budget Committee   (continued)
result the sum of $1.8 million was extracted from the various Faculty and
non-faculty budgets and reallocated.   The committee discussed possible extra
sources of revenue and recommended that the President explore the possibility
of increasing student fees.
At the request of the Budget Committee the President had outlined some of
the priorities and aims of the administration.   In the graduate program it was the
view that in budgeting for new Ph.D. programs priority should be given to those
programs which would augment and strengthen existing programs.  There should
be increased research funds and scholarships throughout the University, and
interdisciplinary programs, particularly at graduate level were to be encouraged.
The administration would also seek to expand professional programs in areas
where the cost would not be too great.   It was also stressed that there was a
great need to preserve the quality of, and to extend, the Continuing Education
programs, particularly in areas of the province beyond the lower mainland.
In the final paragraphs of the report it was pointed out that there would be a
short fall of $4. 549 million in the U.B.C. budget if the Minister maintained his
present attitude that the special warrant money grant was non-recurrent.
It was felt that the deficiency could only be met by further reductions in the
budgets of all areas of the University and by seeking increases in revenue.   Fees
provided the only obvious source.   Even if both actions were taken it was difficult
to see how to prevent further erosion of the academic quality of the education
offered to students at U . B . C. 6683.
Wednesday, December 15, 1976.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Budget Committee   (continued)
Amongst other difficulties which faced the University were the problems of
how to provide sufficient funds to continue to maintain the library collection,
the equipment and supplies budget, and the level of operation of the Computing
Centre, because of the marked effect of increased costs on the budget of those
particular areas.
Queries were raised concerning the status of the two programs withheld by
the Budget Committee.   Vice-President Shaw stated that the Budget Committee
would take the matter up again at the appropriate time.
Dr. Dennison stated that members of Faculty had expressed concern about
the criteria used by the Budget Committee in making recommendations for budget
cut-backs.   He agreed that the committee could not list every criteria used but
felt that Faculty members were entitled to more information.
On behalf of Senate the Chairman expressed thanks and appreciation for the
work done by the committee.
Admissions Committee
Dr. Finnegan presented the report.   The committee recommended that Senate
establish a policy concerning the falsification of academic records.
Dr. Finnegan   ) Where the Senate Admissions Committee becomes
Dr. Copp ) convinced, through examination of pertinent data,
of the falsification of academic records by an
applicant to this University, it shall request the
Registrar not to consider further application to
this University by that individual for a period of
time to be set by the Senate Admissions Committee.

Reports of Committees of Senate   (continued)
Nominating Committee
Dr. Bourne presented the report.   At its meeting of November 17,  1976
Senate passed a resolution to establish a committee to examine the proposal of
the Faculty of Medicine concerning policy on reviews of Departments.   The
committee nominated the following persons:-
Mrs. F. Field
Mr. C S. Funt
Dr. D. F. Hardwick
Dean P.A. Larkin
Dr. J. R. Miller

Continuing  Education
At its meeting of September 15, 1976 Senate received for information a copy
of the University's submission to the Commission on University Programs in
Non-Metropolitan Areas (The Winegard Commission) .   At that time Senate
requested the Committee on Continuing Education to examine the recommendations
in the Winegard Commission report, particularly with regard to the implications
for U.B.C. and to report back to Senate with a detailed evaluation.
The main proposal contained in the Winegard Commission report was that a
multi-campus university be established to serve the non-metropolitan areas of
British Columbia.   The university would be needed by 1990 to accommodate the
likely increase in student numbers during the last decade of this century.   It was 6685.
Wednesday, December 15, 1976.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Continuing  Education    (continued)
stated that the new university should begin as a separately funded Division of
Simon Fraser University charged with the responsibility of providing a
comprehensive outreach degree credit program.  To help accomplish the outreach
objective, the Division, headquartered in Vernon, should establish four small
University Centres in Prince George, Kamloops, Kelowna and Nelson.
Dr. MacDougall presented the report which had been circulated.   He stated
that if the Winegard Commission report were implemented in its present form it
would significantly affect the nature of university education in the province for
some foreseeable period.
Dr. MacDougall stated that in the initial discussions in Senate in September
some suggestions were made that the role set out in the Winegard report for this
University was not an undesirable one.    It was stated in the report that U.B.C.
was the major professional graduate research institution in the province and in
these areas it was a national and international resource.   Clearly the Winegard
proposals contemplated that the University would still have a very special role
in the province, and in that sense it might be said that it was not an unacceptable
role and that U.B.C. did not need to be unduly concerned about the Winegard
proposals.   The committee's view was that this sort of stand could be a very
serious mistake.
The committee first took into account academic standards.   It was clear that
graduates from the new Division of Simon Fraser University would probably come 6686.
Wednesday, December 15,  1976.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Continuing  Education    (continued)
to U.B.C. either transferring to one of the existing Faculties or to one of the
professional schools so the University obviously had an interest in the question
of the academic standards which were going to be applied to any new programs
offered in the interior of the province.   The committee felt that the question
needed to be considered now and not in five or six years time.
As far as the movement of students in the province was concerned at the
moment there was a distinct flow of students from the interior to the metropolitan
areas.   The committee felt that if one of the concerns of the Government was to
halt that flow it was important that any new institution, or programs offered in
the interior, be of a standard and quality that people would respect and regard
as a proper alternative to coming to the metropolitan areas.
With regard to the allocation of funds the committee felt that the amounts
available for tertiary education in the province in the near future were going to
be limited.   From the committee's viewpoint any misallocation of the available
funds was likely to have serious consequences.
The committee felt that the University should be concerned about the proposals
of the Winegard Commission insofar as existing programs and resources of U .B.C.
were concerned, in particular the independent study program.   In terms of
resources the committee was concerned about the Library since there were
assumptions in the proposals that the U.B.C. Library would service the needs of
people in the interior.  There was certainly an inadequate provision made in terms 6687.
Wednesday, December 15, 1976.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Continuing  Education    (continued)
of finances to enable other needs to be met without significantly affecting the
services that were available currently on campus.
The Winegard Commission report contemplated that the new Division of Simon
Fraser University would have access to the resources of the other metropolitan
universities by means of a "contract agreement".  This appeared to be inconsistent
with earlier recommendations that nothing should be done to dilute the role of
U.B.C. as the major, professional, graduate and research institution of the
province.
The committee thought the contract arrangements were unrealistic.   The
recommendations called for a drastic change in the courses to be offered by
U.B.C. -   courses offered in Arts, Science, Education and Commerce were to
be phased out or brought under the aegis of the proposed new Division of Simon
Fraser University.   On the other hand, U.B.C. was expected to expand its
offerings in the professional programs, especially Forestry and Nursing.
The question of how the contract arrangements would work in practice was
a matter of serious concern to the committee.    It was not known whether the
contract would relate to courses or to personnel, whether U.B.C. would be
expected to teach U.B.C. or Simon Fraser University courses.    It was also not
known what security the institutions, and teachers, involved in the contract
arrangements would have;    whether U.B.C. would be expected to employ
teachers on the basis of such contracts and whether the contracts would last for
a year or a longer period. 6688.
Wednesday, December 15, 1976.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Continuing  Education    (continued)
It was the view of the committee that the Winegard Commission proposals
should not be implemented and that there was a better alternative available.
Dr. MacDougall  )        That the report be adopted and a copy forwarded
Dr. Pearse )        to the Minister of Education.
Dean Andrews expressed the hope that this University would continue to offer
its programs in the interior until such time as a policy is announced by the
government clarifying the situation.
Following a brief discussion it was agreed that the Universities Council, the
University of Victoria and Simon Fraser University should each receive a copy of
the report.
The motion was put and carried unanimously.
The Chairman expressed thanks and appreciation for the work done by the
committee.
Faculty of Medicine
Proposal to increase undergraduate enrolment
In March 1976 Senate was informed that the President had received a letter
from the Minister of Education indicating that the Government was most concerned
that several hundred qualified students from British Columbia were being turned
away each year from the Medical School while there was a demand in the province
for almost four times as many doctors as were being turned out by this University.
At the time the Government had given the University 60 days to come up with an 6689.

acceptable plan for a 240 bed community teaching hospital on campus and the
upgrading of teaching facilities in affiliated hospitals.   If the University could
produce an acceptable plan $50 million would be made available, half from the
federal Health Resources Fund and half from the provincial government.
Dean Bates informed Senate that the University had responded to the challenge,
and that this had had the support of the downtown medical people.    In a letter
from the Minister of Education dated November 18,  1976 the President had been
assured that the additional operating funds would in no way compete with other
funds that would normally be made available to the University for its existing
programs and their development, including those in the Faculty of Medicine, or
to any other new programs that The University of British Columbia might wish to
put forward.
Dean Bates stated that the proposal provided a unique opportunity to overcome
some of the serious deficiencies, particularly as far as academic resources in
clinical departments were concerned.   He stated that this year the Faculty of
Medicine Admissions Committee had rejected, from B.C. residents, four students
with an 85/89% average, twenty students with an 80/84% average and eighty-four
students with a 75/79% average.
Senate was informed that in 1974-75 only 18% of the new medical residents in
British Columbia were from U.B.C.   In the same year there were 19% from the
United Kingdom and 17.4% from other Canadian medical schools.   It was stated 6690.
Wednesday, December 15,  1976.
Faculty of Medicine
Proposal to increase undergraduate enrolment   (continued)
that the federal government was taking steps to restrict immigration of foreign
medical graduates.
Dean Bates   ) That the ceiling for undergraduate medical
Dr. Copp      ) student enrolment be raised to 100 per year in
1978, 120 per year in 1979 and 160 per year in
1980, and that the Faculty be authorized to
move to these new levels as rapidly as the
preservation of academic quality and the
provision of physical resources, staff and
operating budget, as described in the Kenny
and Kelly Reports, permit.    To ensure an
orderly expansion, increases in the academic
budget should be available at least one year
in advance of each step of increase in enrolment.
In amendment:
Dr. Clark       ) That prior to expansion of enrolment in the
Dean Fulton   ) M.D. program beyond 120 students a year,
the Senate will review the desirability of
further expansion to 160 a year.
Lost
Dr. Pearse expressed concern that the information provided to Senate was
seriously deficient, particularly insofar as it ignored evidence of an emerging
surplus of physicians.   He referred to U.S. and Canadian studies and noted
their conclusion that a serious physician surplus was emerging throughout the
continent, and that this would have an adverse effect on the quality and cost of
medical care.   It was this impending surplus that had motivated the federal
government to restrict immigration of doctors.   He felt that increasing the number
of graduating doctors in the province would not necessarily increase the number
of doctors practicing in British Columbia.   He agreed that medical school places
were fewer in relation to the provincial population than in other provinces but if 6691.

academic priorities were to be fixed on those grounds then opportunities for study
in areas such as journalism and veterinary medicine should be provided.
Some members felt that there was insufficient information to enable them to
vote at that time.
Dr. Dunell      ) That discussion of the proposal be adjourned
Dr. Mitchell   ) until the January meeting of Senate.

Dr. Finnegan expressed concern for the possible repercussions in the
Faculty of Science that would flow from increasing the student body in the Faculty
of Medicine since Science dealt with nearly all of the students who applied for
admission to the Faculty of Medicine.
Following further discussion the motion was put and carried.
Student Representative Assembly
Due to the lateness of the hour it was agreed that a motion concerning time
for students to address classes on matters of student interest be tabled until the
January meeting.

Memorial Minute
The following memorial statement had been prepared in accordance with the
custom of Senate in recognition by the University and the Senate of the late
Mollie E. Cottingham.
IN MEMORIAM
MOLLIE E. COTTINGHAM
Mollie Cottingham, Professor Emerita of Education, died on December 1, 1976.
A native of Ontario, she took her B.A. at the University of British Columbia in
1927and in the following year began her teaching career in the secondary schools
of the Province.   In these schools she taught continuously, with the exception of
a year (1928-9) in the secondary schools of Ontario and a year with the Provincial
Normal School (1955-6), until 1957, when a long period of devoted service to the
British Columbia Teachers' Federation culminated in the Presidency of that
organization.   From this office she passed to the new Faculty and College of
Education,  where she stayed until her retirement in 1971.   A mere history of the
contributions that Mollie Cottingham made to the schools would produce a lengthy
document.   Although she was always ready to examine proposals for change
without bias, she remained committed to the traditional discipline of fundamental
education.    Thus she proved to be a wise choice as representative of the British
Columbia Teachers' Federation in this Senate from 1953 to 1958.   During these
critical years, in which the Faculty and College of Education came into existence,
it was Mollie Cottingham whose advice and experienced counsel were constantly 6693.

sought.   Naturally, she became a member of that Faculty and over the years
hundreds of students learned from her what it means to be a teacher.   She
brought to her responsibility a firm comprehension of what teachers should
know and how they should impart that knowledge humanely to boys and girls.
In 1967 she won the Fergusson Memorial Award as the Outstanding Educator
of the Year;   and her colleagues rejoiced.    On this campus Mollie Cottingham
was revered as highly in the other Faculties as in her own.   As a Teacher
and as a Teacher of teachers she was indeed a master.
To her cousin Mrs. Allison Duncan, of Mayne Is/and and Vancouver, and
to her cousins in Quebec and Ontario the members of the Senate express their
sympathy.
Dr. Stager ) That this Memorial statement be spread on the
Dr. McGregor   ) minutes of Senate and that a copy be sent to the
relatives of the deceased.

Statement of Purpose
The School of Home Economics has a two-fold function:    first, to educate for
professional competence and second, to encourage a spirit of intellectual
inquiry.
The School through the Division of Family Sciences and the Division of Human
Nutrition, offers four undergraduate programs:    (1) General Home Economics,
(2) Family Sciences,  (3) Food and Nutrition (including specialization in
nutrition and dietetics), and (4) an honours program in nutrition; and a
graduate program in human nutrition.   In each area the Home Economics
subjects are interrelated with the arts, humanities, social, physical and 6703.

biological sciences.   The Food and Nutrition program and the Honours
Nutrition program involve concentration in the physical and biological
sciences.   The General Program involves broad exposure to all areas of
Home Economics and the choice of appropriate electives in supporting
disciplines.   Provision for part-time study may be made by application
to the Director.
Professional Opportunities
Home Economics as a profession is concerned with the ways in which it
can benefit both the individual and the family.   Graduates of the General
Program may be employed in teaching.   Graduates of the Family Sciences
program may be employed in extension services, community agencies and
business and industry.  Graduates who major in nutrition and dietetics in
the Food and Nutrition program may pursue a one-year Graduate Dietetic
Internship in any province in Canada following graduation, in order to
qualify as a professional dietitian.  Graduates of the honours program most
often will pursue advanced degrees leading to positions in university
teaching, research, nutrition services, consultant dietetics or international
food and nutrition organizations.
Academic Regulations - See Faculty of Arts and General Information sections
of the calendar.
I.      A minimum total of 24 units of Home Economics courses is required.
II.       In the third and fourth years a student must earn at least twenty-four

(a)       Normally, students working toward an undergraduate degree in
Education must complete the equivalent of two years of full time
study in the Faculty of Education before the degree will be granted.
These years must comprise the basic professional education courses
including student teaching.   For those who enter the Faculty of
Education after completing an acceptable basic teacher education
program, the two years of full time study will normally include
senior courses of the student's concentration or major.

A     Changes in Mathematics Programs
The Department of Mathematics wishes to make changes of format in its
Calendar statement regarding programs in Mathematics.   The proposed
format is very much like that used by other science departments.   In
addition, the programs are changed somewhat and a fourth area of
concentration in Applied Mathematics, namely numerical analysis, is
introduced.
The revised Calendar statement is given in full below followed by a
summary of the more substantive changes involved in the revision.
Calendar Statement
The department offers opportunities for study leading to doctor's, master's,
and bachelor's degrees.    For information on the B.A. degree programs, see
the Arts section of the Calendar.   For information on the Ph.D., M.A.,and
M.Sc. degree programs, see the Graduate Studies section of the Calendar.
Requirements for the B.Sc. degree:
Language requirements (for all students doing honours in mathematics,
including applied mathematics, or honours in mathematics combined with
another subject):    B.C. Grade 12 level French or German, or one year of
university level French, German, or Russian.    For students who plan
graduate work in mathematics, further work in one of French, German, or
Russian is recommended.
All mathematics students should consult an adviser in the Mathematics
Department each year.
The student should note that the first digit in the number of a course is
intended to convey the level of mathematical maturity at which the course
is conducted rather than the year in which it must be taken.
A student will be denied entry into a third year course should only 50% be
obtained in a prerequisite second year course. 6713.

subject to the approval of the Director of the Institute for Applied
Mathematics and Statistics.
#12    All students in this option are required to include in their electives
at least 6 units of courses numbered 300 or above in one area of
application.
Rationale and Summary of Changes:
1. Computer Science 11 5 will be required of all students. It would be
useful in our third and fourth year courses to be able to assume all
students have some knowledge of Computer Science.
2. It is proposed that Computer Science 302, 402 can be freely substituted
for mathematics electives.   In the past this was true only of Computer
Science 402.   Both courses have substantial mathematical content and
are in many universities given by Mathematics departments.
3. The third year honours requirements have been changed.   We are
proposing to make 300 mandatory along with the usual 320.  The dropping
of 321 made some change necessary.
4.       The most important change is the introduction of a fourth area of
concentration in Applied Mathematics, namely numerical analysis.
This is an important branch of Applied Mathematics.   A degree in
this would be useful to students. 6718.

Microbiology
A     Change in  Honours Program
At present, in the fourth year of the Honours Microbiology program,
students are required to take Microbiology 430 (3), 449 (3), nine units
chosen from Microbiology 302, 307, 308, 402, 403, 408, 409, 411, 418
and 422 and three units of electives. The proposed change would require
students to take the 430 and 449 courses as before but would require only
6 units chosen from the other Microbiology courses and would permit 6
units of electives.
