Saint Mary's College is hoping to start a new master's program, with help from a one million dollar grant.
The Lilly Endowment awarded Saint Mary's the money to plan, approve and implement the degree program for graduate studies.
The grant will allow Saint Mary’s to implement a professional science master's degree, which will transform a math and science master's degree into one.
The program is expected to start in 2015 or 2016.
The last graduate program offered at Saint Mary’s ended in 1969.
