Bill ID: 18-19-31
PCC ID: 18068
Name: PCC Proposal to Rename the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in “Intermediate Survey Methodology” to “Fundamentals of Survey Methodology”
Proposed: 03/01/2019
Sponsor: PCC Committee
Proposal: The Joint Program in Survey Methodology is proposing a name change from “intermediate” to “fundamentals” because of changes to the curriculum. The program requires 6 fewer credits and one fewer advanced 700‐level course than when the program was launched as Intermediate Survey Methodology. The Program thinks that the new title emphasizes that the coursework focuses on core foundational concepts in survey methodology rather than intermediate or advanced concepts.
