ST. GEORGE -- Dixie State College officials are hoping to expand course offerings to add two new four-year degree programs. It was reported that the school plans to add math and math education degrees.
Utah Board of Regents, which oversees the state's higher-education system, is expected to vote on the degree proposal in January. A program review subcommittee has already endorsed the proposal.
The new programs would give Dixie State a total of 21 four-year degree program choices for students. It would also help the school in its progress toward university status.
Executive Vice President of Academic Services Donna Dillingham-Evans says Dixie State has seen significant growth over the past 10 years. In 2000, the school offered just two four-year degree programs.
