5997 - December Graduate Information Meeting

#5997|November 4, 2011

Malone University will present information meetings for each of its six graduate programs on Monday, December 5, at 6 pm in the Fred F. Silk Auditorium of Mitchell Hall. Prospective students may visit with the program directors and graduate admissions personnel regarding pursuing a master's degree in education (M.A.Ed.), counselor education (M.A.Ed.), theological studies (M.A.T.S.), business administration (M.B.A.), nursing (M.S.N.), and the new master of arts in organizational leadership (M.A.O.L.) which is offered partially online.

College of Theology, Arts, and Sciences:
M.A.T.S.  Malone's master of arts in theological studies degree provides the biblical, theological and practical ministry knowledge needed to prepare non-ordained church staff and lay leadership for effective Christian service.  The program is also appropriate for select ordained clergy.  Classes meet one evening each week and students may complete the program in six terms taking classes on a part time schedule.  Four of the classes are offered online.  A concentration in Sports Outreach Ministries is also available.

School of Business and Leadership:
M.B.A.  The two-year master of business administration degree is designed for professionals who desire to sharpen their skills for the competitive work environment. Coursework focuses on problem-solving through business theory and practice.

M.A.O.L.  The master of arts degree in organizational leadership offers a hybrid delivery system, meaning that six courses are offered on campus and four courses are taken online.  This enables the student, if they wish, to take up to two courses at a time leading to a 16-month completion time frame.  Additionally, the program is offered in two tracks. One track is for the leader who wants to complete his or her formal education at the MAOL level. The second track is for those students who desire to continue their education beyond the master's level. This track has an additional research component that prepares the student for doctoral studies.  The degree is designed to focus on the human component of organizations, developing inspirational leaders who understand how to impact vision and high ethical standards into their organization.

School of Nursing and Health Sciences:
M.S.N. The master of science in nursing (MSN) degree provides registered nurses
holding BSN degrees the opportunity to earn the MSN degree in as few as 24 months.  The lock-step program tracks are for clinical nurse specialist (CNS) with an adult health focus and family nurse practitioner (FNP) with a primary care focus. Most courses use a one-day-a-week schedule, plus clinical hours to qualify for the certification exams.

School of Education and Human Development:
M.A. Ed. The graduate program in education provides advanced study in the disciplines of curriculum and instruction; curriculum, instruction, and professional development; reading; and intervention specialist.

M.A.Ed. Counselor Education and Human Development prepares the professional in clinical counseling, school counseling, or addresses teachers' needs through classroom-based counseling and advocacy.  These programs meet the professional needs of Ohio educators and clinical counselors, and prepare them for leadership in their respective settings. Evening classes are offered to meet the needs of the working professional.
