UTPB to offer new degree program
Approval to implement a new bachelor's degree with a major in Multidisciplinary
Studies this fall at The University of Texas of the Permian Basin has been
given by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.
UTPB Vice President of Academic Affairs William Fannin said, "The new
undergraduate degree will provide an excellent option for students seeking
to become elementary classroom teadchers. Today's elementary schools are
built on a system of homeroom teachers who are expected to understand and
apply basic knowledge in a number of areas. Those who major in multidisciplinary
studies are better able to handle the varied elementary school curricula."
The bachelor of arts degree in multidisciplinary studies with elementary
certification consists of a 131-138-semester credit hour major that does
not require a minor. Courses for the degree will concentrate on the four
foundation areas recommended by the Texas Education Agency - language arts
and reading, mathematics, science, and social studies and economics - as
well as the two enrichment areas of fine arts and health and physical education.
Fall classes begin at UTPB on Aug. 26, with late registration continuing
through Sept. 1.
