Elevating an Option or Concentration to a Full Degree

Any option or concentration that is seeking to elevate their program to a full degree must prepare a proposal as if it was a new degree, in that it must reflect the needs of the students and the state, be broadly based, and demonstrate depth, relevance and applicability to the real world of work.
