In addition, the trustees approved two new baccalaureate degrees — a bachelor of music in performance and bachelor of science in mechanical engineering.

All three programs are expected to be offered starting this fall.

The board also approved two certificate programs —a certificate of proficiency in social research methods and a certificate of completion in retail management. Both programs will start in the fall of 2019.

All new academic programs must receive approval from the Northwest Commission of Colleges and Universities, which is expected to occur by this spring, before they can be fully implemented.
