Dalton State College officials today outlined details of an Academic Master Plan that includes eliminating several two-year associate degree programs.
Among those programs are associate of arts, economics, philosophy and sociology degrees.
College leaders also announced new program development, including a bachelor of science degree in nursing and a general studies bachelor’s degree.
The Academic Master Plan is designed for a more traditional student population that is seeking four-year degrees.
"It's always a work in progress, but overall, it's very dynamic plan," said Sandra Stone, the vice president for academic affairs who presented the plan today. "It aligns with the college's goal of promoting multiculturalism and diversity and improving student learning and academic support," she said during the presentation.
"It's a four-year plan that includes an ongoing assessment of all the programs," she said.
