* This chart assumes a 2-year workshop and preparatory process prior to the launch year of each discipline. A launch decision is made each spring with the postgraduate deans from each school who collectively confirm that the discipline is ready for launch. This forum allows for programs to identify barricades to implementation and find support and solutions to ensure all schools are comfortable with the targeted launch date. Under special circumstances, disciplines may postpone their launch by one year.
