Flexible Schedule Allows Students to Earn Degree in Less Than Two Years

Beginning this fall the Graduate School of The College of New Rochelle will be offering two new master’s degree programs in Public Administration and Marriage and Family Therapy.

The new Master’s Degree in Public Administration (MPA) is designed specifically to prepare graduates for a professional career in public service. This advanced degree will provide students with the skills and knowledge to lead and manage public and not-for-profit agencies. The program offers two exciting options: 36-credit Master’s in Public Administration and a 42-credit Masters in Public Administration with Concentration in Long Term Care Administration.

The Graduate School Master’s in Public Administration is a multidisciplinary curriculum focused on management and leadership, organization, public policy, communications, human resources, finance, and program evaluation. This degree offers theoretical background, practical experience and training to enter the field of public service at the management level.

“The MPA program is designed for individuals who aspire to serve as leaders in governmental and non-profit organizations. They will be equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to shape the future of public policy and become advocates for societal needs,” said Dr. Marie Ribarich, the Dean of the Graduate School at CNR.

The Graduate School Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy is a 45-credit program designed to meet the professional education requirements for licensure in New York State as a marriage and family therapist. Upon successful completion of the NYS license examination, graduates may find employment in mental health clinics, community agencies, and private practice. “The program will provide students with a variety of courses and rich practicum experiences in which to develop their therapeutic skills and their professional expertise,” said Dr. Ribarich.

Both the Master’s in Public Administration and Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy have flexible schedules offering students the opportunity to attend college year-round thereby allowing degrees to be earned in less than two years.
