BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - A proposal to reform the classes every Virginia Tech undergraduate must take for a degree is moving forward.

The Roanoke Times reports (https://bit.ly/1FGEUu5) that the proposal is set to go to a final university committee vote in Blacksburg on Monday.

If approved by the committee, the proposal would go to the university’s board of visitors for approval and could be implemented as soon as 2016.

The proposal would change much of the general education curriculum, including the number and content of the courses and how the program is assessed.

Among other things, the move would require about 42 credit hours of general education, up from more than 30 credit hours.

The proposal already has been passed by two previous committees. Virginia Tech last revised its general education program in 1984.
