This assignment serves as an initial draft of Part I of your Signature Assignment in this course. Your instructor will provide you with feedback and you will address the feedback and incorporate revisions and improvements as needed for future assignments, including the submission of your Signature Assignment in Week 8. This assignment requires you to complete the initial steps of proposing a new degree program at a higher education institution. You must choose a specific institution and name it. Then, you must specifically identify the type of degree program and the name of the program you plan to propose. This cannot be a program that is already being offered at this institution and should not be a relatively common degree offered at many institutions (e.g., a BA in English or a BS in biology, or a BFA in theater at a liberal arts college). Consult the readings and resources for this week to conduct research and carefully consider what type of new degree program you can justify is needed at this institution. You will use the template located in this week’s resources to complete this assignment. The template includes the following requirements: Name of Institution Institution’s mission/vision/values statement and institutional learning outcomes (if available) (Note: You will copy and paste this verbatim from the institution’s website.) Type of Degree Program Name of Degree Program School, College, or Department the program will be housed Program Description (2-3 sentences) Consistency with Institutional Mission (4-5 sentences: Explain how the program is consistent with the institution’s stated mission and vision, values, and goals or outcomes) Targeted Student Population (1 paragraph: Who is this program for? What types of students would likely enroll in this program? Provide evidence of student interest and demand to support the potential for sufficient program enrollment.) Program Rationale (1 paragraph: Briefly provide a rationale for why this program should be offered. What is the benefit to the institution for offering this program?) Labor Market Demand (2-3 paragraphs: What is the likely demand for graduates of this program? Include local, state, and national labor market data to justify the need for this program. Occupational outlook, wage, and demand information may be found at sources provided in this week’s lesson as well as from other sources you may find) Similar Programs (1 paragraph: What similar programs, if any, are offered at other institutions in the state or region? If similar programs exist, justify why another program is needed here. How will the proposed program be distinct from other programs?) Instructional Delivery and Curricular Approach (1 paragraph: Will the degree be residential, online, or hybrid? What type of curricular approaches will be employed in the design of the program?) Length: 3-4 pages References: Include a minimum of 3 credible or scholarly sources.
