New Master’s and Bachelor’s Degrees Unveiled

The College has launched two new online degree programs.

 

“In addition to our existing MPH degree, Health Policy Management specialization, we now offer an online MPH in Social and Behavioral Sciences,” explained Ken Slenkovich (Assistant Dean).  “Both degrees are offered in a fully online format to meet the needs of busy professionals. Students can graduate in as few as 24 months and some may be able to waive the GRE.”

 

In addition, an online bachelor’s degree in Clinical Trials Research was launched in fall 2017 with 30 students and is gaining momentum. This is an ideal degree for students interested in epidemiology and health care innovations research. With experience, there is room for advancement, and the clinical trials research field is growing.

 

We are currently recruiting students interested in a hybrid MPH degree in Health Policy & Management with a focus on Leadership & Organizational Change.  The program, which previously was all on-campus, will now be mostly online with a few weekend on-campus sessions.  Ken Zakariasen, PhD (Professor, Social and Behavioral Sciences) an internationally renowned expert in leadership and change, will conduct the weekend sessions designed to equip students with the unique knowledge and skills they need to lead health organizations in an ever-changing business and political climate. Our alumni from previous leadership cohorts have successfully advanced their careers as a result including two who have become health commissioners since receiving their MPH. Contact Dr. Zakariasen directly for more info at kzakaria@kent.edu or 330-672-2542.
