Midland University Launches Online Graduate and Doctoral Offerings
In its continuing efforts to meet the needs of all students, Midland University is excited to announce that graduate and doctoral online learning is available in a wide range of programs.
In addition to the traditional on-campus undergraduate offerings, Midland University Online will be offering 23 online programs that feature a doctoral degree, masters degrees, graduate degrees, certificates, and endorsements that will allow students to advance their careers.
“This is an exciting time for Midland University,” Midland University President Jody Horner said. “We believe our online programs will be beneficial to so many students who are looking for the flexibility they need to further their education. Whether they are beginning a new career or looking to move ahead in their current career, Midland University Online will provide the opportunity to advance their purpose.”
A variety of online graduate programs will be available as early as this summer to enable students to utilize their talents at a professional level. Students can now earn a new Doctorate of Education Degree in Leadership and Innovation. The EdD in Leadership and Innovation is designed for mid-career working professionals from a range of industries who are interested in promoting change within their organizations. The program challenges students to bridge the gap between theory and practice and obtain the knowledge and skills necessary to provide solutions to organizational and societal problems.
Master’s Degrees are available in Business Administration, Education in Leadership, Teaching and Learning, Principal MEd Endorsement, Business Intelligence & Analytics, Learning & Talent Development, Sport Administration & Leadership, and Special Education. The new Business Intelligence & Analytics program focuses on integrating external and internal sources, data, and factors to analyze and recommend strategies in a variety of business disciplines, and will equip students with technical and professional skills in the analytical field.
The new SpED program is designed to expand the expertise of educators and give them the components needed to teach, consult, and provide services related to behavioral needs of children with disabilities.
“These new programs, alongside our existing online programs, were developed with our partners to make certain the curriculum and skills align with the demands of the workplace and that graduates are ready to apply their learning on day one,” said Brady Woudstra, Associate Vice President of Graduate and Online Operations.
Education Endorsements and Certificates are available in Behavior Intervention Special Endorsement, English as Second Language Endorsement, High Ability Learner Endorsement, Classroom & Behavior Management, and National Board Certification Preparation. Graduate level Business Certificates will be available in Accounting, Applied Data Analytics, Business Intelligence & Data Analysis, Business Strategy, Entrepreneurial Leadership, Finance, Healthcare Management, Marketing Management, and Project Management.
Woudstra said Midland University Online not only works to meet the demands of its students, but works to fill a void in the marketplace. “Midland continues to lead the charge of being a higher education institution focused on relevance and marketplace needs,” he said. “This is true not only for the traditional undergraduate students in Fremont, but for our current and future graduate and non-traditional students studying online.
“Midland University Online has a portfolio of offerings, including customized training and formal degree programs, to provide any individual or organization the pathway to their goals,” Woudstra said. “While these new programs offer the flexibility, frictionless experience, and speed that modern learners have come to expect, Midland Online also provides the personal and intentional support of our faculty and advising staff that is second to none. We understand the challenges of taking the next step, or possibly first step, in an individual or organization’s goals, and we have the team to support our community of learners along the way.”
