4.1.3 Academic Department Home Page Template

Based on research and user input, UNG is now implementing more standardized home pages across our units. For academic department home pages, the basic required information is listed and explained below. If a particular item does not apply to your department, it may be skipped.  Items in the expandables area can also be customized to fit the needs of your department.

Large Impact Image or Random Image from Set

Choose an image that shows a hands-on application of a degree from the department. Use people who work in this department or students of the department - no clip art showing non-UNG people. A photo shoot for the department can also be considered. You can also choose to have an image from a pre-selected group randomly inserted here each time the page is published.

Department Description

A brief paragraph of conversational and audience focused text that speaks to ‘You’. What does the department offer students, in way of faculty, experiences, etc… that sets  it apart from its competitors? Avoid institutional slang and acronyms. Seed the paragraph with those words you think people will search with to find the department page. Approximate size: 600 characters

Degrees & Programs Listing

A listing of all degrees and certificates offered by the department pulled in from the UNG degrees site. This listing will have links to detail pages for each degree in the program sites (as available) and links to catalog listings. This information is maintained in a central location by the webteam. A listing of Minors available in the department can be added to this listing. This content will be maintained by the department's web coordinator.
