Comprehensive Standard 3.4.11
For each major in a degree program, the institution assigns responsibility for program coordination, as well as for curriculum development and review, to persons academically qualified in the field. In those degree programs for which the institution does not identify a major, this requirement applies to a curricular area or concentration. (Academic program coordination)
At the University of South Carolina Upstate (USC Upstate), each program coordinator has the appropriate terminal degree to be academically qualified to teach within the discipline. The department chair is frequently the program coordinator. However, for departments with multiple degrees, faculty from the discipline may serve this coordinating function without formal administrative appointment. The following table lists the program coordinators.
