The motion from the CST Graduate Committee is to approve the proposed Doctoral degree program in Geoscience, to be offered by the Department of Earth and Environmental Science.
Rationale: The Department of Earth and Environmental Science is undergoing a significant expansion in its research and teaching activities. The hiring of multiple new faculty with diverse research programs in the geosciences is affording expanded opportunities for graduate research and education. The establishment of a doctoral program in Geoscience will enable the full support of graduate research and education in the geosciences, and also complement and extend the current strengths of the Masters program in Geology.

The motion from the CST Graduate Committee is to approve the proposed Masters degree program in Information Science and Technology, to be offered by the Department of Computer and Information Sciences.
Rationale: Recent workforce and economic analyses are projecting a significant need for individuals that are highly trained in the information sciences. Masters degree programs in this field are taking advantage of new developments in this quickly evolving field. In recognizing a gap in current masters programs offered by other colleges and universities in the Middle Atlantic region, the curriculum of the proposed Masters degree program in Information Science and Technology (MIST) is designed to provide a strong functional interrelationship with the basic science fields. For example, MIST will provide the opportunity to gain a combined M.S./Ph.D. degree in Information Science and Technology, and in a specific science discipline. This program is also expected to be a key component of the “3+2” dual Bachelors/Masters degree programs that have been established at Temple University.
