Marymount College President Dr. Michael Brophy announced the proposal of two new master’s degrees for the college: a master of science in community psychology and a master of science in leadership and community development for a fall 2013 launch.
These master’s degree programs are pending approval from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
Marymount is set to open a campus at the Lucerne Hotel within the next year.
“Marymount College is committed to providing educational degree programs that benefit our students and the community,” said Dr. Brophy. “A master’s degree is becoming increasingly important in today’s ultracompetitive job market. And since our goal has always been to offer courses that will give our students an edge in the workplace and beyond, the next logical step is for us to offer master’s degree programs.”
Students who have completed their bachelor’s degree may enroll in the master’s program. However, an attractive option for undergraduate students is the ability to complete a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree within five years of study. The following five-year degree pathways will be offered:
A bachelor of arts (BA) degree in psychology with a master of science (MS) in community psychology; BA in liberal arts with an MS in community psychology; BA in business with an MS in community psychology; BA in business with an MS in leadership and community development; BA in liberal arts with an MS in leadership and community development; and a BA in psychology with an MS in leadership and community development.
The application deadline for fall 2013 enrollment is March 1, 2013.
The college currently offers bachelor’s degree in liberal arts, media studies, business and psychology at its two campuses located in Rancho Palos Verdes and San Pedro.
