Northern Michigan University
announced it will offer seven new graduate degree programs this fall.
Some are on-campus and others are online; some are summer sessions and others are evening classes, to offer flexibility for students in various stages of their careers. They are: applied behavior analysis, clinical molecular genetics, educational administration, higher education in student affairs, master's of business administration, post-secondary biology education, and public administration
The applied behavior analysis degree focuses on learning to affect behavior change in populations like students, workers or patients. It takes place on campus with a summer practicum.
Other on-campus programs are the MBA program, which comes in two flavors, behavioral or quantitative, and offers evening courses; post-secondary biology education, which prepares graduates to teach biology at the college level and includes a summer session.
Online classes include the higher education in student affairs degree, for those interested in student services at colleges and universities, which takes place in real time online courses. The clinical molecular genetics program also is online, but has a one-week on-campus lab experience at NMU and is one of the few programs of its kind in the country.
Other online programs are educational administration, which prepares principals and leaders in K-12 schools; and public administration, which offers several concentrations like state and local government, human resource administration, criminal justice administration and public management.
