A special information program for those interested in starting a master’s degree or teacher credential program at California State University, Bakersfield is scheduled Thursday, Aug. 18, beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the Dezember Center on the CSUB campus.

The program will focus on graduate programs in the schools of Education and Business and Public Administration. Representatives from the graduate programs in those two schools will be on hand to assist prospective students begin the application process and answer any questions they may have about the various graduate degree programs available.

“This event is to help those who are interested in starting work toward a master’s degree or a teaching credential in fall 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 either CSUB President Horace Mitchell or Provost Soraya Coley, followed by an overview by Sasaki of the graduate programs’ admission process and the university’s requirements for graduate degrees and teaching credentials.

Prospective graduate and credential 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 admission, 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-healthcare administration (MSA), master of arts in education (specializations in bilingual/bicultural, curriculum and instruction, educational administration, early childhood education, literacy/reading, and special education), and master of science in counseling (specializations in school counseling, student affairs in higher education, and community counseling).

Credential programs represented will be multiple subject, single subject, preliminary administrative services, professional administrative services, reading/language arts specialist, preliminary special education, professional clear special education, education specialist in mild/moderate disabilities, education specialist in moderate/severe disabilities, and pupil personnel services.
