AUBURN, Ala. (EETV)- On Feb. 7, Auburn University's board of trustees met at the Montgomery campus to launch multiple new departments and degrees.
The Harbert College of Business requested the establishment of a Department of Supply Chain Management. The Department of Systems and Technology currently oversees a certificate in this management. However, the College of Business hopes that establishing this department under their college will help them grow.
The College of Architecture, Design, and Construction is planning on also establishing a new Bachelor of Landscape Architecture to develop solutions to urban and rural landscape issues. This degree is the only one in the state of Alabama.
The College of Human Science also established a master's in Brewing Science and Operation. This degree is one of the two in the country and helps students become more advanced in brewing sciences and business skills.
Lastly, the board moved to rename the Department of Psychology in the College of Liberal Arts to the Deoartment of Psychological Sciences.
