The author discusses in some detail the consideration and preparation needed to maximize a 'special' program's success. A special program could mean a curriculum which is already in existence and will now be enhanced, or it could mean a new area of concentration. The successful completion of the special program could culminate in a master's degree or the program could consist of a series of credit or noncredit short courses at the graduate or undergraduate level. Although the author primarily concerned with graduate degree programs, it is felt that the principles discussed can also be applied to nondegree or undergraduate programs.
