Under the authority delegated to the Academic Programs Committee by Council in 2002, APC approves new Fields of Specialization at the Minor level (www.usask.ca/university_council/acad_prog/reports/04-25-02.shtml).
At its meeting on February 9, 2007, the Academic Programs Committee approved the attached proposal for the introduction of a Minor in Crime, Law and Justice Studies in the College of Arts & Science, pending confirmation that the College of Law did not object to the name for this minor.
