In 2001, the University implemented a new informatìon systems infrastructure. A consequence of this was the adoption of a new set of nomenclature to describe academic awards and curriculum offerings. The changes in terminology that will be noticed in the 2001 Handbook of Academic Programs are: Academic Program is used to describe academic awards which were previously referred to as Courses. Course is used to describe syllabus offerings which were previously referred to as Subjects. Unit is used to describe the value the course contributes to program completion previously referred to as Points.
