Guidelines for Adding an Additional Curriculum Option to an Approved Master’s Degree Program

A proposal to add an additional curriculum option to a currently approved master’s degree program should be addressed to the dean of the Graduate School. The proposal should contain detailed information which addresses the rationale for offering the new option, the admission and degree requirements, the sustainability and expected outcomes of the new option program, a list of participating graduate faculty (include brief resumes), and a description of required resources (indicate additional resources beyond current levels required for program implementation, including personnel, space, and other fiscal needs). Normally, excluding resumes, the proposal should not exceed ten pages in length.

Proposals may be reviewed by the appropriate Area Committee and the Graduate Council depending on the credit requirements, etc…. Recommendations regarding approval will be made to the dean of the Graduate School who makes the final decision.
