The University of Evansville has announced that it will launch a new Master of Science in Leadership program this fall. The two-year hybrid program, combining periodic on-campus weekend instruction with online instruction, provides an opportunity for working professionals to grow and advance in leadership skills that are pivotal to success in today’s dynamic work environments.
The 36-credit-hour program will develop innovative and visionary leaders who will be prepared to take their organizations to the next level. The program offers a focused core curriculum in the foundations of leadership but allows the opportunity for students to select a specific concentration area. Current concentration areas focus on higher education, nonprofit leadership, and public health.
“The curriculum allows students to set individualized leadership development goals and to achieve them through the knowledge, skills, insights, and experience they gain as a part of the program,” says Jill Griffin, UE’s faculty program director. “Developing and honing skills in teamwork, communication, cultural competence, visioning, innovation, and change management, our graduates will be prepared for the complexities of leadership in today’s dynamic workplaces.”
The hybrid cohort program offers competitive pricing for adult learners at $525 per credit hour. Applications are now being accepted for a Fall 2018 start for those individuals looking to gain knowledge and the skillsets necessary to grow personally and professionally.
“The hybrid format will provide the flexibility for our working adults to advance their careers while still maintaining a good work-life balance,” says Lindsay Roberts, UE director of adult education. “The students will be on campus for instruction on pre-scheduled Saturdays and will also complete online learning components.”
