note: it's not a department Umlund 07:11, 13 March 2008 (EDT)

Okay, well, we have two categories: departments and majors. If something has dedicated faculty and isn't just a course of study, it hews pretty close to being a department. Similarly, the "program" in architecture is classified as a department. Pacman 15:47, 13 March 2008 (EDT)
I can only speculate what goes on in the minds of deans or whoever decides these things. in this case all the faculty affiliated with the "program" have some official departmental affiliation. But the SEAS website makes pretty clear that they have 9 departments and 2 programs, which are somehow different from majors. I don't know the differnece though. Umlund 16:58, 13 March 2008 (EDT)
