New Graduate Degrees Offered.
The Graduate School at Bay Path College announced that it will be offering two new master’s degrees: a Master of Science in Strategic Fundraising and Philanthropy and a Master of Science in Education with a specialization in Higher Education Administration. Both degree programs are accepting new students for the fall 2008 session.
The nonprofit sector is one of the fastest growing job sources in the country, outpacing both private business and government, and fundraising is a critical component to the health and viability of these organizations. Organizations large and small, public and private, seek fundraising individuals with proficiencies in multiple areas, including a thorough understanding of the philanthropic marketplace, mastery of key fundraising techniques, and comprehensive management skills. The Master of Science in Strategic Fundraising and Philanthropy is designed to meet this growing demand for highly skilled fundraising professionals. The degree will prepare individuals to move into the field of fundraising or to advance to middle and senior management fundraising positions in not-for-profit organizations. Bay Path College already offers an M.S. in Nonprofit Management and Philanthropy, and this new degree complements that existing degree while offering specialized skills and knowledge in fundraising and philanthropy. This degree will be offered online only.
The Master of Science in Education with a specialization in Higher Education Administration is designed for administrators, faculty, policy makers, and leaders in higher education who are interested in enhancing their leadership and management capabilities. The coursework focuses on the practical application of core competencies that are critical for effective leadership in higher education combining the areas of leadership, finance, strategy, marketing, fundraising, and change management. The College will also offer a Certificate in Higher Education Administration, which may be combined with other graduate programs at Bay Path or it may be taken as a stand-alone program. This degree and the certificate will be offered online.
