The name of a degree should convey long-term meaning; the content of a degree program should be consistent with the name; and the reputation of the institution and of post-secondary education in British Columbia should be enhanced by the quality of the offering. Beyond that is the value to graduates of having a professional credential recognized by appropriate licensing and accrediting bodies as the basis for entry to practice. - Ministry of Advanced Education, Degree Program Review Guidelines
Please use the following guidelines to determine the name of your proposed credential:
For Degree programs:
