Program Proposal(pdf)

PBC  Modification: Autism Studies   7/26/2014  Approved  9/8/2014 

Modification: Autism Studies  Program Description

Towson University is proposing to expand the mode of program delivery to include online instruction of its existing Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Autism Studies. Virtual delivery will alleviate students living in rural areas and those facing barriers to reaching the main campus of their transportation issues. The programís expansion also intends to respond to the increased diagnosis of autism spectrum disorders. The curriculum remains unchanged. The goal is to build autism-focused knowledge regarding issues ranging from early identification to evidence-based practice, from family collaboration to co-occurring conditions, and from struggles in the workplace to key policy and research initiatives
