New programs at Grambling, La. Tech get initial approval




The Board of Supervisors for the University of Louisiana System has approved three new academic degree program proposals for two northeastern Louisiana universities. During a meeting Tuesday in Baton Rouge, the board approved a proposal from Grambling State University to develop a Master of Arts degree program in teaching and a letter of intent to establish a Bachelor of Science degree in child development and early literacy. The board also approved a proposal by Louisiana Tech University to start a doctoral program in molecular sciences and nanotechnology. For GSU, the new MAT program would cover special education, elementary education and secondary education; it would replace the alternative teaching certification-only program currently offered at the university, which does not include secondary education. The MAT program is expected to launch in June. GSU's proposed bachelor's degree in child development and early literacy would replace the existing associate degree program in child development. All academic programs must also be approved by the Board of Regents before becoming finalized.
