Based on assessment and student need, the program is currently undergoing several revisions which will clarify the objectives of the degree and its curriculum. These revisions have been approved by the graduate faculty (December 3, 2012) and are currently moving through other university committees. These changes, along with the degree program name change, still need to be approved by the academic council and the chancellor. We anticipate this happening in the next couple of months.
If you are interested in seeing what the revised degree program will entail, the following PDF provides a look at the revised mission statement, catalog description, and curricular options.
