NMC and Framingham State University 12th Cohort - Registration on-going (February 25, 2015)

Framingham State University and Northern Marianas College have joined forces to recruit a new cohort of students who will be working toward their master’s degree in education with an emphasis in International Education (GRE Not Required). The graduate program, which is offered only outside the mainland United States, culminates in a degree conferred by the Framingham State University and presents a unique opportunity for students living and working in the CNMI to advance both academically and professionally. Many of the graduates of the program are now employed in the CNMI Public School System and Northern Marianas College as Instructors, principals, and administrators. The classes for the program are scheduled in a way that recognizes that many of the students hold full time jobs and are balancing many obligations. As such, the courses are provided in a condensed but convenient format supported by prior readings, and culminate in a final project. The instructional content of the classes are delivered through both online formats as well an in-class sessions, which are led by Framingham professors who travel to the CNMI to meet personally with the cohort participants. Since the start of the collaborative effort between the NMC and Framingham State University, over 277 individuals—employed by the CNMI Public School System, Northern Marianas College, private schools and other organizations—have completed the program. Northern Marianas College offers several degree and certificate programs, including a Bachelor of Science degree in Education (emphasis on elementary education, early childhood education, special education, or rehabilitation and human services) as well as a Bachelors in Business Management. Other degrees offered are: Associate Degrees are in business, business administration (emphasis on accounting, business management, or computer applications), liberal arts, nursing, natural resources management, criminal justice, and hospitality management. NMC also offers short-term certificate programs in different vocational, academic, and professional areas. Individuals interested in joining the next cohort may contact the Northern Marianas College Community Development Institute at 234-5498 Ext. 6808/6802 or email [email protected]
