PRINCESS ANNE, Md.– The University System of Maryland's governing board on Friday gave the University of Maryland Eastern Shore approval to expand its undergraduate catalog by adding undergraduate degrees in the study of jazz and popular music, marketing and finance.

UMES Provost Ron Nykiel said current and prospective students can expect to see changes in the university's course catalog outlining pre-requisites for the new music degree beginning with the spring 2014 semester.

The university's Department of Fine Arts currently offers only a bachelor of arts in music education. In explaining its reason for adding a jazz and popular music program, UMES' said in its proposal, "A non-teaching degree program in the field of music will enhance and complement the existing teaching program by expanding the student body within a diverse field."

UMES business students already had access to a sequence of classes in marketing and finance, Nykiel said, so the regents' action enables the university to make a few modifications to the course catalog in order to award degrees designating those two subjects as concentrations of study.
