Effective Fall 2021, courses associated with New College programs will have new three-letter designators based on the area of study: “AFR” (African Studies), “BPM” (Buddhism, Psychology and Mental Health), “CAR” (Caribbean Studies), and “CSE” (Critical Studies in Equity and Solidarity). For program completion purposes, the courses previously offered under the “NEW” designator are interchangeable with the new designator(s).
