Greenwood Village, Colo. (PRWEB) December 13, 2012
Colorado State University-Global Campus is proud to announce a number of new academic options designed to meet industry demand and maximize the benefits for students who are earning a 100% online degree from CSU-Global. These new academic programs include a bachelor’s to master’s Dual Enrollment Option, a Dual Master’s Degree Program, a new graduate level IT Concentration, and seven new degree program Specializations.
“One of our main priorities is to ensure that students have the tools they need to succeed professionally,” said Dr. Jon Bellum, Provost and Senior V.P. of CSU-Global. “These new academic offerings expand our ability to customize a student’s degree program and provide a more advanced and comprehensive learning experience in their specific areas of personal and professional interest.”
The new Dual Enrollment Option allows students in certain bachelor’s degree programs (Business Management and Healthcare Administration and Management) the opportunity for early admission into a related master’s degree. This allows highly motivated and qualified students to begin pursuing their graduate degree earlier than they traditionally would.
New students (enrolling in January 2013 or later) interested in the popular M.S. in Management and M.S. in Organizational Leadership programs can choose to participate in the new Dual Master’s Degree Program. This option provides students with the opportunity to receive both degrees upon successful completion of an additional 18 credit hours beyond the requirements of their first master’s degree.
M. S. in Management students can also now complete an IT Concentration as part of their degree. The first of its kind for CSU-Global, this concentration is for students who desire added focus in the growing principle of information technology to complement their management degree. The concentration consists of six IT courses in addition to the core management curriculum and is designed to develop leaders within the technology field.
CSU-Global is also adding a total of seven new Specializations (three undergraduate, four graduate) in career-relevant areas so students have even more customization options. New bachelor’s degree specializations include Data Management and Analysis, Operations Management and Supervision, and Project Management. The new master’s degree specializations include Accounting, Project Management, Contemporary Practices in K-12 Online Learning, and K-12 Educational Technology and Instructional Design.
“CSU-Global is known for its flexibility and its focus on workplace readiness,” continued Dr. Bellum, “and these degree options give students new ways to tailor their learning to meet their specific career goals.”
