Bachelor of Arts Degrees: A Development and Implementation Odyssey Robert FlemingAssociate Vice President, LearningKwantlen University CollegeSurrey, BC, Canada
British Columbia faces significant challenges
over the next decade in providing access to quality
post-secondary education for B.C. students and
expanding the capacity of its post-secondary
sector. The South Fraser region in particular,
where Kwantlen is located, is in critical need of
new access opportunities given demographic
characteristics of the areas (At Our Doors: The
Demand for Post-Secondary Education in the
Fraser Region of Southwestern B.C.).
Additional FTE Enrollment Demand
From 2003 Levels
“Recent occupational projections on the
Ministry of Advanced Education website,
those of May 2003, show that 72 per cent of
the projected job openings in BC over the
next decade will require some form of post-
secondary education. In contrast, only 66
per cent of employment in 2001 required
post-secondary education” (Our Doors 19).
Between the years 2002/03 to 2003/04,
1149 to 1179 students who began their
studies at Kwantlen applied to B.C.
universities for degree completion. Of these
qualified applicants, 65.9% to 70% were
made offers of acceptance and 78% to 80%
of these applicants followed through with
