The University of Alabama will roll out four new bachelor’s degree programs for the fall 2023 semester: Business cybersecurity, applied liberal arts, neuroscience, and sport management.
The new programs received approval from the Alabama Commission on Higher Education, according to The Crimson White, UA’s student-run newspaper.
Bridging the gap between technical and non-technical business departments, the business cybersecurity major will be offered by the Culverhouse College of Business. The curriculum spans technical aspects like consumer privacy and programming languages to non-technical such as risk management.
Applied Liberal Arts
Offered by the College of Arts and Sciences’ New College department, applied liberal arts is designed for students with over 80 credit hours. The major allows them to combine two minors for degree completion, targeting those who haven’t made notable progress toward their degrees.
Under the Department of Psychology, the neuroscience program adopts an interdisciplinary approach. It combines elements from biological sciences to anthropology – preparing students for neuroscience research and the MCAT.
Training future professionals for the athletic industry, the sport management program covers areas like security, event planning, public outreach and talent management. It’s set to include a comprehensive focus on real-world experience and relationship building with an internship requirement for graduation.
