Boston College has created a minor in Jewish studies this fall, one of the few such programs at a Roman Catholic college. Students will need to take at least six courses to complete the minor.
City College of New York has launched two new master's programs: a master of fine arts in creative writing and a master of landscape architecture.
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is starting a new minor called the Study of Christianity and Culture. The program is housed in Chapel Hill's sociology department and involves faculty members from a number of other disciplines.
The University of Washington has started a master's program in computational linguistics. With 19 students enrolled in the first class, the program is believed to be the largest of its kind in the United States.
Yale University has started a program in which students -- over five years -- can earn both an undergraduate degree and a master's degree in public health.
