New Program Development


Preparing a proposal for a new degree program is time and attention sensitive. The process relies on faculty and administrators to effectively gather and relay information from multiple sources. It also requires attention to detail and anticipating the needs relative to various audiences, which include reviewers within NYU SPS, the Office of Academic Program Review and Assessment (OAPRA) and the New York State Education Department (NYSED).
