IWU, UE Roll Out New Courses
Two colleges in the state have introduced new programs. Indiana Wesleyan University’s new bachelor’s degree in international relations and security will be available online, while the University of Evansville has launched a major in ethics and social change that will be available on-campus beginning in the fall.
The new IWU degree is geared toward students looking for careers in fields such as government, military, law enforcement, cybersecurity and intelligence. The school says only a handful of other schools throughout the country offer a program like it online and none are in Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky or Illinois. Department of Public Service Program Director Tony Manganello, who previously served in the U.S. Secret Service for 11 years, spearheaded the program. He says "I began to sense a need for this in the Christian higher education world. Indiana Wesleyan University is the perfect place to offer this program because of its excellent liberal arts program and its rigorous, ethical view of the world."
UE’s new major will be part of the philosophy and religion department. The school describes it as a combination of academic study and field experience so students can "address complex problems in our local communities and the world." UE says students will be prepared for jobs or additional study in fields ranging from the non-profit and business worlds to community activism, diplomacy, economic development, education, government, humanitarian and international aid, law, media, faith-based organizations, medicine, politics and public policy.
