More information on Academic Reorganization and Program Changes can be found on the links listed below the “Academic Reorganization” tab on the menu above.

Further, in response to recent changes to the program change proposals as of 1/24/2018, GPSC has updated its page on program change proposals with the following information:

Africana Studies has requested a move from the School of Social Sciences and Multicultural Studies to the School of Humanities. The administration has not provided any additional information as to the status of this move.

Communication Studies has requested a move from the School of Social Sciences and Multicultural Studies to the School of Media and Performing Arts. This move has reportedly been approved by the administration.

Healthcare Management has requested a move to the School of Health Services from the School of Management and Marketing. The administration has reportedly approved this move.

Faculty in Political Science have proposed creation of a separate Department of Public Administration in the College of Business under the School of Management and Marketing. This proposal was not driven by the administration; it exists as a faculty generated proposal separate from the reorganization. Other faculty in Political Science would remain with the “division” of Political Science.

The administration has granted the formation of a School of Transportation and the formation of a School of Applied Technology. The transportation programs (Automotive Technology, Aviation Flight, Aviation Management, Aviation Technologies) and the technology programs (Quality Engineering and Management, Technical Resource Management, Electrical Engineering Technology, Industrial Management and Applied Engineering) would all be located in their respective schools.

Computer Science has been granted a request to form a separate School of Computing. This request eliminates the Department of Computer Science and promotes it to a School which will house Computer Science programs and other related programs.
