Marty's Message: Graduate Programs Continue to Grow
We are finding ways to grow in the College of Professional Studies, especially in our graduate degree offerings. In the past five years, we have increased our graduate student enrollment from 167 to 415. With a second MBA cohort, addition of new certification programs, expected increase in the Master's in Athletic Training and start of the Doctor of Physical Therapy, we project enrollments well over 600 in the near future.
Our first MBA classes met last week with a cohort of 46 students – meet them here! It is being delivered simultaneously to students on all three of our campuses using a hybrid delivery model that combines online, on air and face-to-face teaching.
Speaking of the DPT, we received approvals from UW System and HLC and are in the queue for CAPTE approval with a 2022 start date.
These programs, plus a new graduate certificate program in Health and Wellness Coaching and continued success of all our grad programs, are making for exciting times!
