In response to market and student demand, which coincides nicely with President Obama’s new Community College to Career Fund initiative, it is with great excitement that we announce our NEW masters degree programs and our NEW doctoral degree program in the College of Education. These new graduate programs that concentrate on Career & Technical and Postsecondary Education (CTPE) have been recently added to the new Department of Teaching and Learning.
The primary mission of the CPTE degree programs is to prepare educational leaders in advanced theory and practice, thus enabling them to better serve young adults and adults as they pursue careers and vocations in the workplace and in the community. The programs serve professional educators and trainers, counselors, administrators, and policymakers who are involved in public and private secondary, postsecondary and adult career and technical education.
The graduate programs are designed to prepare persons for careers in teacher education, research and evaluation, career and technical education administration, secondary and post-secondary teaching, local and state agencies (e.g., government), and public and private organizations (e.g., business/industry, consultants).
We are very excited about these new programs and are currently accepting applications to both degree programs for Fall 2012 admittance. The admission process and requirements (i.e., minimum GPA, GRE requirements for the doctoral program, etc.) are provided on the Graduate College website.
