Bill ID: 17-18-23
PCC ID: 17040
Name: PCC Proposal to Rename the PhD Program in "Human Development Education" to "Human Development"
Proposed: 02/23/2018
Sponsor: PCC Committee
Proposal: The Human Development Program is requesting that an error in the name of the program be corrected to its proper name. Specifically, the name of the program is Human Development. However, under the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC), both the Master's degree and the Doctoral program are listed as Human Development Education. As a result, the incorrect name of the program is being listed on student diplomas. The correct name "Human Development" should be listed as the program name. No changes to the curriculum are being made at this time.
