Low-Productivity Degree Program Report, 2004
Maryland Higher Education Commission
This is the first report using the policies and procedures adopted by the Maryland Higher Education Commission on September 23, 2003. The report provides a list of academic degree programs that have been identified as low producing based on a single criterion of degree production. The programs are identified by the Maryland Higher Education Commission and forwarded to the public colleges and universities for response. Campuses were asked to review the identified programs to determine the continued viability of these programs, and report back to the Commission. In this 2004 report, 46 programs were identified, 11 at public community colleges and 35 at public four-year colleges and universities. The institutions requested that 3 programs be discontinued of the 11 programs identified for the community colleges. Eight programs were recommended for three-year exemption, and 0 were recommended for permanent exemption. The four-year institutions recommended that 6 programs be discontinued; 16 programs were recommended for three-year exemption, and 13 programs were recommended for permanent exemption. This report is presented in three sections. The first section contains background material and summary information. The second section contains a list of the programs identified by institutions and the recommended action for each program. The third section contains, in their entirety, each individual college and university response to the programs identified in this report.
