Program Proposals

Past Program Proposal Lists:

College of Health & Human Services


College of Social Sciences and Interdisciplinary Studies

.

 

 

 


COLLEGE OF HEALTH & HUMAN SERVICES

Department of Criminal Justice

 

SUBSTANTIVE CHANGES

Criminal Justice - Online Degree Completion

Justification:
This proposal is to provide the upper division course work necessary to complete the Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice by the use of web based delivery (Web CT). The courses offered are the same as those required for the “on campus” degree. 

The program will be offered by the College of Continuing Education on the self supporting basis.  Academic program control and requirements will be the responsibility of the Division of Criminal Justice. Faculty for the degree completion program will possess the same qualifications as the faculty in the traditional program.  Selection and supervision of faculty will reside in the Division of Criminal Justice.

The prospective student will complete the lower division course work at other universities or community colleges and will take the remaining courses for completion on line. The courses will be the same content and description of the traditional program described in the current CSU Sacramento Catalog. Courses will be offered on an accelerated schedule of 7 weeks per course, allowing students to complete 2 or more courses per semester.

The Criminal Justice Program at CSU Sacramento is the largest program in the system, currently enrolling approximately 1,500 undergraduate majors.  Over the past several years the Division has received requests from potential students who are working in Criminal Justice and Public Safety for some means to finish their degree.  Many of these potential students live at some distance from a 4 year college, or are restricted in the courses they can take due to shift work and schedules. This proposal allows in-service criminal justice and public safety employees to complete their degrees while maintaining their employment, and is a commitment to the Division’s outreach efforts to serve populations that do not have access to higher education in their chosen field.

This change will require WASC approval as it is over 50% on-line delivery.

 

COLLEGE OF SOCIAL SCIENCES AND INTERDISCIPLINARY STUDIES

Department of Government

 

NON SUBSTANTIVE CHANGES

Government - Undergraduate Majors in Government and International Relations

Justification:
The justification is to address the problem of students repeating and failing upper division courses multiple times.
