California State University, Bakersfield is offering a program to provide information for those interested in beginning a master's degree or a postbaccalaureate teacher credential program on Thursday, Dec. 2, beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the Dezember Leadership Development Center on the CSUB campus.
Representatives from a wide array of CSUB’s graduate and credential programs will be on hand to assist prospective students begin the application process and answer any questions they may have about the various master’s degree programs available at CSUB.
“This event is to help those who are interested in starting work toward a master’s degree or a teaching credential sometime in 2005 but for whatever reason haven’t had the opportunity to come to campus and begin the process,” said Edwin Sasaki, associate vice president for academic programs at CSUB. “It’s like one-stop shopping – begin your application process, and, at the same time, have all your questions answered by the people who are in charge of the program you’re interested in.”
The information program will begin with a welcome from CSUB President Horace Mitchell, followed by an overview of the graduate programs’ admission process and the university’s requirements for graduate degrees and teaching credentials by Sasaki.
Prospective graduate/postbaccalaureate students will then be able to meet with staff members from CSUB’s Admissions and Records Department who will be able to access student records to help expedite the admission process, and also with program representatives who will be able to answer questions about specific graduate or credential programs.
Programs that will have representatives at the information session include business administration (MBA), public administration (MPA), administration (MSA), master of arts in education (specializations in bilingual/bicultural, curriculum and instruction, counseling, educational administration, early childhood education, literacy, and special education), counseling psychology, geology, teaching mathematics, nursing, social work (MSW), anthropology/archaeology, history, English, psychology, sociology, Spanish, and interdisciplinary studies.
