New Program Development

Mohawk College is committed to developing programs that align with student and industry needs, as well as the college’s strategic mandate.

New Program Development is facilitated by the Program Quality Office. Stakeholders (faculty, ADs, etc) who are interested in developing a new program prepare a Statement of Interest identifying the program title, a brief description, a rationale, and the program’s alignment to the college’s strategic mandate agreement.

Proposed programs are reviewed by the Associate Deans and Deans who approve programs for initial development. Approved programs are developed collaboratively by subject matter experts, Program Quality, and members of the CTL team. This comprehensive process gathers input from stakeholder groups across the college, including the program area, Institutional Research, the Registrar, Scheduling, Finance, the Pathways office, Continuing Education, and International Education.

Once a proposed program has received input from each of these areas, it is presented to the Board for its review and approval. Approved programs are then validated by the Credential Validation Service and submitted to the Ministry for funding approval.
