LAFAYETTE - The Board of Regents has voted conditional approval for the University of Louisiana at Lafayette to offer master of science degrees in criminal justice and kinesiology, both of which are in demand.

The master of science degree in kinesiology would build on the current baccalaureate program on exercise and sports medicine.

Eastern Kentucky University Health Sciences Director Michael Ballard, who did an outside review of the program, found it important because Louisiana is a state with high obesity and diabetes rates.

Lafayette has an ideal setting for criminal justice students to get academic and hands-on experience, the staff reported, because the program can utilize the Picard Center for Childhood Development and work with young people.
