Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Evening Degree Programs Introduced The Faculty of Arts and Science has announced that complete evening degree programs will be offered in six disciplines beginning in the Spring Semester, January 1972. It is anticipated that the list of major Subjects will be increased to include other courses from the 18 departments of the Faculty of Arts and Science as the "evening degree" offerings expand. This step is most important in opening new avenues of access to the degree programs of the University. To this stage in the development of University programs a great many people have taken advantage of evening credit offerings but could not complete degrees without devoting a considerable percentage of their time to attendance during regular day-time schedules. A number of important points have been Stressed in explaining the new concept: (1) Admission - admission may be gained under either the regular admission program or the special mature student procedure which is open to everyone over 21 years of age; (2) Course Selections - the same freedom to 'shop around' at the beginning of each semester will be particularly appealing to people having limited association with the University by providing an opportunity to select the most desirable programs of personal interest; [3) Identical Degree - the programs are the same as those offered during the day-by the same faculty people-and this will ensure the consistency required of the academic standard for the degree; (4) Bus Service - regular bus service will ensure the accessibility of the west campus for evening classes; (5) Student Services - all regular student services will be available to persons interested in taking a degree during the evening: financial assistance and awards, counselling and food services, faculty advisors, health services, bookstore, library, etc. For the present the Faculty will provide complete programs by evenings in the following areas of specialization-Sociology, History, Political Science, Psychology, English and Art. Courses from most other departments will continue to be offered during the evenings, but as previously explained the evening student has not in the past been able to acquire a degree completely through the evening credit programs, a situation which is now remedied. Details regarding the evening credit course selection in this new expanded degree program of value to students in either the Faculty of Arts and Science or the Faculty of Education are outlined in a pamphlet. Interested persons should contact the Registrar (329-2231) concerning admission procedures or the Faculty of Arts and Science office of Continuing Education (329-2244), both on the new west campus. Non-Credit Programs Popular In September 1971 the University introduced its first non-credit programs intended as general interest offerings with low fees and open admissions. The response was excellent and several new courses will be given during the Spring Semester with emphasis on the fact that there is no required level of academic attainment for admission. These are truly non-credit, general interest programs. Included during the Spring Semester will be Art courses in painting and ceramics, an athletic trainer's workshop, Canada and world politics, and an interdisciplinary offering about Southern Alberta, its history, geography, sociology, etc. Details about this new kind of University program are available from the Offices of Continuing Education.
