In the past year, almost every department in Cleveland State University has had to revise its curriculum from the ground up. In a new series this semester, the Cleveland Stater will take a look at a department of Cleveland State University, to see how the change is affecting courses and degree tracks.

Students caught in the middle of the switch should see their academic adviser as soon as possible.

Issue 1: School of Communication

The School of Communication is making big changes. Journalism and Promotional Communication has added a number of new courses, with a focus on multimedia production, and Film and Digital Media are consolidating from three degree tracks into one 45-credit track. The director of FDM, Evan Lieberman, said, "We're going bigger, but it's going to be a much better major."

Issue 2: College of Education and Human Services

The College of Education has revamped its curriculum, with a focus on getting students into the field. The College will work with area schools, including MC2STEM and the Campus International School, to give teachers-in-training more real-life experience, earlier on.

Issue 3: Department of Modern Languages

In its two majors--French and Spanish--the Department of Modern Languages has combined and created courses to give students more knowledge about French or Spanish culture. But the department has faced some challenges with Cleveland State's new block scheduling.
