The University of the Incarnate Word has three new programs available to those individuals seeking to take their skills to the next level: a Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Student Services in Higher Education; a Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Online Teaching and Training; and a Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA) pending SAC- SCOC approval.

The M.Ed. in Student Services in Higher Education prepares students for employment or advancement at the college or university level. This concentration will develop students that possess the knowledge, skills and leadership qualities necessary to facilitate the learning and development of students through campus support services. This program also offers a non-degree seeking plan for students who wish to obtain an 18-hour certificate in Student Services in Higher Education.

The M.Ed. in Online Teaching and Training is designed to address the demand for more professionals in the area of online teaching and training serving institutional needs in corporate and educational settings. The program emphasizes learning and leadership, preparing students to lead initiatives in technology in their own organizations.

The Doctorate of Business Administration program is intended to create scholar-practitioners who are able to make original contributions to the advancement of business research and practice. Graduates of the program will develop innovative principles and practices in business operations and management. They will employ ethical leadership to solve domestic and global social issues and communicate appropriately in diverse environments by aligning audience, medium and message. Individuals with master’s degrees in business or business-related fields are eligible for admission to the DBA program. The program prepares students for careers in higher education and business.

All three programs are accepting applications for the fall 2013 semester.
