Stackable Certificates in “Traditional” Graduate Programs
Tue Oct 15 2019, 10:00am–10:50am
Presentation Description. Please provide a brief description of your session. This description will be used to describe your session in the conference program.
Designing curriculum has its inherent challenges. Add in the “traditional governance” process within higher education and designing innovative curriculum presents additional challenges. In the University of St. Francis’s College of Business and Health Administration, we have re-designed four graduate programs that each provide “stackable certificates” for students. Each program allows students to begin in a certificate program that leads to a masters program. One of the programs provides for the students to earn three certificates that stack together for the masters degree. All of this has been achieved through the traditional governance process. This session will share the curriculum models and will discuss the process used to shepherd these models through the approval and implementation process.
