Elms College is accepting applications for admission into graduate programs that begin in August. Prospective students interested in earning a master’s degree in applied theology, autism spectrum disorders, communication sciences and disorders, education, business administration, or nursing are encouraged to apply.
Tuition rates for applied theology, autism spectrum disorders, communication sciences and disorders, and education have been reduced to make master’s degrees more attainable. The cost is $364 per credit hour. The master of business administration (MBA), master of science in nursing (MSN), and combined MBA/MSN programs are $650 per credit hour.
“With the job market still recovering, we are seeing more and more students enroll in graduate programs to boost their resumes and find better job opportunities,” said Elizabeth Hukowicz, Ed.D., Division of Graduate Studies and Continuing Education associate academic dean. “We know that graduate students often have other commitments and expenses, so our programs are both flexible and affordable.”
The college will host a graduate studies information session 4-6 p.m., Aug. 15 at the Alumnae Library. Prospective students will have the opportunity to meet faculty and staff, explore degree options, and apply with no application fee.
Graduate courses are offered during the day or evening, over the weekend, on campus, or online. Elms College has partnerships with numerous employers and school systems.
