Point Park University Accepting Applications for Three New Masters Programs Beginning Fall 2009

Friday, July 31, 2009

Point Park University has announced three new graduate programs - Master of Education in Teaching and Leadership, Master of Education Program Leading to Secondary Certification, and Master of Science in Environmental Studies. Applicants are now being accepted for the Fall 2009 term.

The Master of Education in Teaching and Leadership is a 30-credit program designed for educators and others who want to participate in collaborative efforts to design classrooms and schools for the twenty-first century. This program is also ideal for current teachers who need to earn the 24 additional credits to attain an Instructional II certificate while working on a master’s degree. Classes are conveniently scheduled primarily on Saturdays and some evenings.

The Master of Education Program Leading to Secondary Certification is a 42-credit program designed for students who hold a baccalaureate in the content area or related field and seek initial secondary certification (grades 7-12) in biology, citizenship, communications, english, or mathematics. The program delivers a solid theoretical framework based on current educational field research, with extensive opportunities for direct classroom applications which address the challenges and opportunities faced by current educators.

The Master of Science in Environmental Studies is a 30-credit interdisciplinary program intended to provide students with an understanding of the complex nature of environmental problems and their solutions. The goal of the program, which incorporates scientific, economic, political, legal and ethical points of view, is to train professionals who will be involved in seeking solutions to environmental problems.

Courses in the Master of Science in Environmental Studies program are offered in an accelerated format. With classes being held Monday and Wednesday evenings in a seven-week session, it is possible to complete the program in just eleven months while still working full-time.

Candidates for the Master of Science in Environmental Studies program should have a bachelor of science in fields such as science, engineering, engineering technology, business, communication, or the human sciences. A prerequisite of the program is six to nine credits of university-level science coursework.
