Process for New Joint Graduate Degree Programs

New Joint Degree Program

Joint Degree Program Approval Process

Any faculty group may develop a proposal for a new joint degree program. The establishment of a new joint graduate degree program mirrors the approval process for individual graduate degree programs. The first step is to request permission to negotiate between the University of California and the partner institution. Faculty considering a joint graduate degree program must consult the VPAA prior to proceeding. The VPAA approval announcement will stipulate the program's effective term.
