Announcing Two New Graduaute Programs at Rutgers-Camden (Oct. 19, 2012)
To the Campus Community:
I am pleased to report that two new graduate programs at Rutgers–Camden were approved by the Board of Governors during its meeting on Thursday, Oct. 18.
The School of Business received approval to launch a master of science in business analytics (MSBA) degree program, which will provide students with the professional knowledge required for success in a data-driven marketplace. This new Rutgers–Camden program will help students to understand how to collect, store, analyze, and utilize data in a strategic manner. This program reflects an increasing employer demand for advanced expertise in business analytics.
The Faculty of Arts and Sciences received approval to create a master of arts for teachers in a foreign language, which will provide students with new opportunities for careers in teaching world languages at the K through 12 levels. There will be two tacks to this program: one for already-certified teachers who wish to earn a graduate degree and another for students working simultaneously toward a graduate degree and teacher certification. The program will offer a balanced curriculum integrating courses in a foreign language and teaching methodology. Spanish will be the first language offered in this program.
These new graduate programs reflect Rutgers–Camden ongoing commitment to providing our students with the skills required for their career and life success here in southern New Jersey and around the world. Both programs still require the approval of the New Jersey Presidents Council.
Please join me in congratulating the faculties and deans of the School of Business and the Faculty of Arts and Sciences for their thoughtful work in developing these innovative programs.
