Angola adult education spotlighted
Open house set for new office, programs
July 26, 2010--Trine’s Angola Adult Education Center has moved to the main campus, and director Dave Wagner and staff will host an open house to let current and prospective students, as well as the community, know all about new resources and programs.
The open house on Aug. 10 will give interested people a chance to meet Wagner, School of Professional Studies (SPS) Dean David Wood and faculty members, pick up literature, learn about new course offerings and enjoy iced tea and a snack. The event will be from 4-7 p.m. in the SPS office in the lower-level northeast section of Ford Hall at 300 S. Darling St.
The move excites Wagner because of the new opportunities it affords adult students. “Our students now have an easier access to the university’s resources,” Wagner said. “It’s exciting that they can use the classrooms and labs, and that allows us to expand scheduling because now we have the space, literally the whole university, to work with.”
Bon Appétit culinary services in the University Center, C.W. Sponsel Library, Library & Information Services, tutorial aid and the Office of Career Services are just some of the resources now conveniently available to evening students. Wagner said putting the students in touch with services and athletic events on the main campus will help them feel like an integral and important part of the Trine family.
Master degrees in criminal justice and leadership are among new SPS programs. The criminal justice master degree builds on the bachelor degree to prepare pre- and mid-career individuals serving their communities in law enforcement, corrections, as court practitioners or in private agencies for advancement and/or management in two concentrations: public administration and emergency management.
The leadership master degree builds upon almost any bachelor degree, with the following tracks, or areas of emphasis, offered: healthcare systems studies, international studies, non-profit organization studies, strategic foresight and entrepreneurship, sustainable business administration and medical device regulatory compliance.
A new associate degree in engineering technology replaces industrial technology, and now covers design and manufacturing. The Angola education center will continue to offer the associate degree in accounting and management, along with bachelor degrees in applied management, business administration, healthcare management, human resources management and management majors, criminal justice and psychology.
The master degrees and other programs, except for engineering technology, will also be offered through the Trine Virtual Campus online study program.
