BOARD APPROVES NEW UNDERGRADUATE DEGREES, SETS ROOM AND MEAL PLAN RATES
BGSU continues its commitment to delivering additional academic programs in response to high-demand fields, and to providing an educational experience that is both affordable and prepares students for rewarding careers. The board of trustees at its Feb. 19 meeting approved three new undergraduate majors, plus residence hall and meal plan rates for fiscal year 2017.
The new major within the Bachelor of Science degree is forensic science; and the new majors within the Bachelor of Arts degree are biological sciences and in philosophy, politics, economics and law (PPEL).
“These are all exciting new programs that build on the University’s strengths and position our students for not only current but also emerging careers,” said David Levey, chair of the board.
