McDaniel College is adding eight new undergraduate majors beginning Fall 2020. The new bachelor’s degrees include Actuarial Science, Applied Mathematics, Biochemistry, Biomedical Science, Criminal Justice, Health Sciences, Marketing and Writing and Publishing.
“These new majors reflect innovative curricular changes that will further enhance the quality of our academic program,” said McDaniel Provost and Executive Vice President Julia Jasken. “All eight of these new undergraduate degree programs are a direct result of the work done by our faculty to strengthen our academic program by aligning our academic offerings with the interests of current and prospective students. We believe that these new degrees will prepare our students for careers in growing fields.”
McDaniel College has received approval from the Maryland Higher Education Commission to offer the new majors, and the college’s Board of Trustees approved the new majors at their May 2019 meeting.
