The financial implications of this proposal are minimal. Only one new, cross-listed course is recommended, theInterdisciplinary Seminar in Prevention Science, which will be a 1 hour course offered each Fall and Spring semester. It is expected that the instructors for this course will not receive a course load reduction for teaching the course. Rather, their teaching responsibilities for the course will be recognized as variable credit hour teaching beyond their expected faculty course load.
Completion of the CPS program is not expected to add to the total number of hours on students' degree plans. Students enrolled in programs in each of the sponsoring programs will be able to complete the CPS requirements without taking additional courses, by choosing all or some of their elective coursework from courses approved for the certificate program. Students at both TAMU and at the Health Science Center will pay the regular resident or non-resident fees for the other institution/school. They will be billed normally for their "home" school, with all fees. They will be billed at the "visiting" institution only for their tuition and hourly fees (e.g., library, etc.). This works both ways for students at the Health Science Center and at TAMU. No TAMU student, however, will be required to take courses in the School of Rural Public Health in order to complete the certificate requirements.
It is expected that the affordance of a Certificate in Prevention Science will enhance the ability of the sponsoring programs and departments to recruit highly competitive graduate students. The higher enrollment in the respective graduate programs will have a positive financial impact for TAMU. It is expected that completion of the Certificate in Prevention Science will enhance the ability of graduates to compete successfully for jobs post-graduation.
