Program Overview


The "Program Overview" content type contains a brief summary paragraph providing a general program overview, with an accordion below, listing up to 3 degrees, majors, minors, and/or specializations.

Each accordion can contain a name/heading for a degree variation, and an expandable/collapsible block of content containing a brief summary of that specific degree variation, along with up to 4 section or content links to provide additional detail, such as to a list of degree requirements, a typical program of study, two-year projected course offerings, etc.

This content type was created in order to standardize program/degree information across colleges/schools and departments/programs, so that current and prospective students can more easily compare majors or degree programs and find the best fit for them.
