For the first time in several years, the College of Arts & Sciences is launching new undergraduate majors and minors. Majors in applied theatre, art history, dance, environmental studies—policy, culture and society, and public health, as well as a self-designed major, opened in Fall 2012. Arts & Sciences also is offering new minors in editing and publishing, indigenous studies and outdoor leadership.
Meanwhile, the College of Health Professions opened its doctorate degree in audiology and a master’s certificate in healthcare compliance this fall and is preparing to open a master’s program in athletic training in 2013. In August, Health Professions also started accepting doctorate level occupational therapy students, as it transitions from a master’s to doctorate program.
