SB 334 - This act repeals provisions that limited state teachers colleges from conferring postgraduate degrees except those necessary to the training of teachers or degrees other than those in education and arts and sciences.
This act broadens the degree programs that Harris-Stowe State University may offer. Currently, Harris-Stowe is only authorized to offer undergraduate degree programs with an emphasis on selected applied professional disciplines. This act authorizes Harris-Stowe to offer baccalaureate degree programs and graduate degree programs, upon approval of the Coordinating Board for Higher Education.
This act is substantially similar to HB 653 (2015).
