On January 8, the CWU Faculty Senate unanimously approved the creation of a new Bachelor of Science in Geography, with specialization in Environmental & Resource Geography and Geographic Information Science. The new degree and specializations still have a couple of hurdles to cross, including Board of Trustees approval on February 7, but we expect those final steps to go smoothly and to begin admitting students to the new degree in Fall 2014. If approved, these changes will make CWU the only institution in the state to offer a BS. We believe that our new degree and specializations will appeal to students who want a more rigorous science-oriented geography curriculum and will help our graduates move into fast growing careers in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields. We will retain the BA degree for those students whose academic and career interests are satisfied by our existing degree.
