Milligan holds information session for graduate and adult programs

MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN (October 12, 2009) — The Admissions Office at Milligan College will host an information open house for its graduate and adult programs on Tuesday, Oct. 20, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in Derthick Hall.

Faculty and staff will be present to discuss the new online computer information systems major, degree completion programs for adults in business administration and early childhood development (BS), and graduate degree programs in business administration (MBA), education (MEd) and occupational therapy (MSOT).

The general information session will allow visitors to speak with faculty members and receive information on a variety of topics, such as academic coursework and financial aid.

A requirement for many information systems (IS) positions, Milligan’s new online CIS major is designed to prepare students for a wide variety of careers, such as programmers, network managers, management information systems directors, and systems project leaders for applications in business, industry and government.

The BS in business administration is a degree completion program that enables working adults to complete a business administration major in 18 months by attending class one night a week.

Milligan’s newest bachelor’s degree program in early childhood education allows adults who have completed about two years of college to complete the child and youth development major in about 18 months at either Milligan or the college’s Mountain City (Tenn.) satellite campus. Teaching licensure in early childhood education (PreK-3) may be obtained by completing additional coursework and a 15-week supervised teaching experience in a public school setting.

The MBA is an 18-month program that meets one weekend per month, complemented by ongoing Internet-based instruction. The program is designed to accommodate professionals working at every level of management and focuses on business leadership from a Christian perspective.

The MEd program includes both initial licensure and advanced degree options. The initial licensure degree is typically a 15-month professional educational program that allows students to earn their teaching certificate or license and their degree. The advanced program is for current teachers seeking professional development and their master’s degree.

The MSOT program is one of only two master’s level occupational therapy programs in Tennessee. It prepares therapists to help people with injuries or illnesses to relearn basic living skills. The program is designed for people with undergraduate degrees in a variety of academic fields.
