New program development is a multi-step process (see flowchart below).The Program Analytics team provides a required report to support the first of three stages in degree program development, and a required summary to expedite new minor and certificate development. To begin any new Program Development process, please submit a Program Analytics Request.
For more detailed process examples (i.e., new graduate or undergraduate degree programs, 3+2/4+1 programs, minors, or certificates) or for further questions, please visit the Academic Planning and Program Development webpage or contact ProgramDev@shsu.edu.
