HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. — The Northern Kentucky University (NKU) College of Education is launching a new Bachelor of Arts in Education, Culture and Society program, starting in the Spring 2022 semester.
“We are thrilled to offer this kind of unique degree option, where students choose a program track and tailor their coursework to their career goals,” said Dr. Ginni Fair, dean of NKU’s College of Education.
This undergraduate program offers opportunities for students to develop and apply innovative and practical understandings of education from multidisciplinary perspectives. It will prepare graduates to address critical needs in the current and future workforce, including working with diverse colleagues and customers regionally, nationally and globally, the university said. It also provides students with innovative use of technology and design thinking.
While the new NKU Bachelor of Arts in Education, Culture and Society does not lead to a teaching certification, it offers career-oriented internships and apprenticeships as well as service-learning community engagements that strategically position its graduates for employment in educational institutions, government agencies, community organizations and non-profit and corporate settings. It is also designed for learners interested in student support services and education-related law.
NKU is an entrepreneurial state university of over 16,000 students served by more than 2,000 faculty and staff on a suburban campus nestled between Highland Heights, Ky., and bustling downtown Cincinnati.
