Developing New Academic Programs

Developing New Academic Programs

StFX has always supported its departments, schools, and faculties in developing, and implementing new academic offerings which are responsive to the needs of the local and broader communities.

 This document, developed by an APP ad hoc subcommittee between 2015 and 2017, outlines the processes the university follows for developing new academic programs. The document describes the key activities and approval checkpoints, as well as the roles and responsibilities of various groups.  

The following types of credentials are included:

  • New degree and diploma programs
  • Substantially modified programs
  • Concentrations
  • Minors
  • Certificates
  • Colloquia
