New courses coming to CMC?
Colorado Mountain College is working to offer three more bachelor's degree programs.
The college already has bachelor's degree programs in business administration and sustainability studies. The Summit Daily News reports the school is going through an accreditation process to try to add bachelor's degrees in applied science, nursing and interdisciplinary studies, with an emphasis in elementary education.
It is limited by Colorado law to offering only five bachelor's degree programs.
The college would need to gain approval from the state, the Colorado Commission on Higher Education, the Colorado Department of Education and the Colorado State Board of Nursing, among others, before offering the new programs.
College officials say the new degrees would be offered only at some of Colorado Mountain College's 11 campuses.
