Nicholls State Proposes New Degree Programs

THIBODAUX, LA (AP) — Nicholls State University could bring back criminal justice and computer science degree programs.

         Discussion of the new courses is paired with proposals to kill the communicative disorders and athletic training degrees. The two programs will remain concentrations in the Allied Health program.

         The Daily Comet’s Jacob Batte reports officials cited a low number of graduates, complications with future accreditation and low community impact for deleting those two degrees.

         Likewise, they cited a workforce need for the creation of criminal justice and computing technologies degrees. The criminal justice degree was recently approved by the University of Louisiana System and now faces review by the state Board of Regents. The computing technologies degree will be reviewed by the UL System in December.

         If the Board of Regents approves the programs, they could open up enrollment in the fall of 2016.
