By early February 2012, a degree audit will be completed for all
students who have declared a major or minor in Physical Education. The degree audit
will help Hamline assess the time frame necessary for the phasing out
the program. The goal of the phase-out process will be to both assure
that the programmatic needs of those pursuing the major or minor are
met, and to establish a reasonable date beyond which offering individual
courses required of the major or minor will no longer be necessary.
