Holland College announces program changes
March 23, 2018
Charlottetown, PE – Following a review of its program offerings, Holland College will be suspending two programs and introducing two new programs in September 2018.
Holland College will be suspending the Golf Club Management and the Photography and Digital Imaging programs due to low enrolments. Current students will not be affected by the suspension of either program, as the second year of each program will commence in September as usual.
The program suspensions are part of Holland College’s ongoing effort to ensure that its programs meet the needs of industry and students, states Vice President of Academic and Applied Research Dr. Sandy MacDonald.
“Throughout the year, Holland College reviews its program offerings to ensure that we are providing industry with the workers they need, and students with the education that they want. As a result of this, our program offerings change over time,” he said.
The college recently launched a one-year Occupational Health and Safety Technology program on the West Prince Campus in Alberton, and will launch a two-year Occupational Therapist Assistant and Physiotherapist Assistant program in Charlottetown in September. The newly-combined Plumbing/Pipefitting program also starts in September, at the Georgetown Centre. The program will prepare graduates to enter either trade,
All affected staff and students have been notified about the suspension of the two programs. The college will be reviewing both programs to study alternate methods of delivery, and hopes to launch revamped programs in the 2019-20 school year.
