BA News Update
Dear Landmark Community,
With all of the exciting academic initiatives happening at Landmark, we want to draw your attention to the most recent developments and planning for our new BA in Liberal Studies. While this important degree program has been launched, we will offer our first full 3rd year slate of course offerings in fall, 2014.
In order for eligible students to enroll in the BA program, the first step is to complete a declaration of degree form. We intend to make declaration and pursuit of the BA degree straightforward. As we create a policy to govern this process, we will look forward to allowing students to become BA majors soon after their entrance to Landmark, but far enough into their studies so that we all are making an informed decision. We anticipate our declaration of degree policy to be announced before spring semester, 2013.
Students who are closer to graduation have been asking when they might return to Landmark to enroll in the degree. We are so pleased that many of our students consider Landmark College their college of choice. Depending on the Associate’s degree program in which a student is enrolled, the possibility exists for a small number of students to return to the college in spring, 2014 to enroll in courses that will fulfill the requirements of the BA. More specifically, while we are unlikely to have courses at the 3000 level offered during this semester, we will offer at least one required course for the BA, and some 2000 level electives that are required as electives for the BA degree. Students who will be graduating in the next year, but are interested in enrolling spring 2014 should discuss this option with their advisors to ensure that the anticipated spring offerings match up appropriately with their particular needs for the BA degree.
As we continue to add programmatic elements and procedures we will be communicating with students and families. It is a wonderful time to be part of this community.
