    Reconfigurations of schools and colleges

    2012: CU-Boulder resumed the administration, management and governance of a bachelor’s degree in environmental design. Environmental Design continues as a program, and the degree program continues. Offered since 1970 as part of the College of Environmental Design, CU-Boulder’s undergraduate environmental design degree was overseen by the College of Architecture and Planning at CU Denver 1992 to 2012.

    2011: The School of Journalism and Mass Communication was discontinued as a school or college by vote of the Board of Regents  April 14 2011. Journalism and Mass Communication continues as a program housed in the CU-Boulder Graduate School. The B.S. program continues with modified degree requirements, called "Journalism Plus," requiring students to have not only a journalism major (e.g. advertising, broadcast news) but also an additional field of study (e.g., history, anthropology) or a second degree. The M.A. program in journalism continues unchanged.

    Reconfigured degree programs

    In the departments of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences and Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences, one degree program was split into two separate degree programs, effective fall 2008.

  • From: Astro-Physic Planetary & Atmospheric Science, MS/PhD
  • To:
    • Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, MS/PhD (major code, ATOC, remained unchanged)
    • AAstrophysical and Planetary Sciences, MS/PhD (major code changed from APAS to ASPS)All students who were currently enrolled and were in the old major code were switched to the new major code.

    In the department of Art and Art History, configuration changes resulted in the following, effective fall 2008:

  • From:
    • Fine Arts, BA/BFA
    • Fine Arts, MA/MFA
  • To:
    • Art History, BA (major code changed from BAAH to AAAH)*
    • Studio Arts, BA (major code changed from BASA to AASA)*
    • Studio Arts, BFA (major code changed from BFAS to AASF)*
    • Art History, MA (major code changed from ARTH to AAAH)*
    • Studio Arts, MFA (major code changed from ARTC to AASF)*

    *All students who were currently enrolled and were in the old major code were switched to the new major code.
