Starting with Henry Kendall College of Arts and Sciences, which today has 15 departments and 68 degree programs (including minors), will morph as soon as practical into three divisions – fine arts & media; humanities; and social sciences – with 36 degree programs (including minors).
In Engineering & Natural Sciences, the engineering verticals initially remain largely unchanged. Although, the stand alone M.E.s will shift to 12-month programs and have a more practical, rather than academic, focus.
On the natural sciences side, 30 degree programs will become 15, and we will be eliminating Ph.D. programs in chemistry, geosciences, mathematics and physics.
In Collins College of Business, 27 programs become 18, with the most notable changes in graduate-level finance.
Oxley College of Health Sciences is the youngest, and, with the PPRC identifying growth potential, they remain virtually intact.
