The MPA + MS Nursing Dual-Degree Program prepares students for nursing administrator positions in hospitals, health care facilities and community health agencies. Read more
The MPA + MS Nursing Dual-Degree Program prepares students for nursing administrator positions in hospitals, health care facilities and community health agencies. Nurses who advance to administrative positions often find themselves struggling with their new responsibilities related to budgetary, human resources, organizational, policy and management matters. The dual-degree program is designed to ensure that students not only advance their professional nursing credentials, but also develop knowledge and skills for effective management. The dual-degree program is targeted specifically to students in the Community Health Nursing program who have selected the Nurse Administrator role.

By carefully structuring the sequence of courses, recognizing comparable course offerings, and using courses in one program to count as electives in the other, students are often able to complete both degrees in three years of full-time study without compromising the professional standards of either program.

Successful completion of the dual-degree programs results in two degrees: a Master's in Public Administration (MPA) and a Master of Science (MS) in Nursing.

The MPA-MS Nursing Dual Degree Program

The Master of Public Administration (MPA) housed in the College of Community and Public Affairs and Master of Science in Nursing (MS Nursing) housed in the Decker School of Nursing offer a dual MPA-MS Nursing degree program to provide students at Binghamton University with a unique opportunity. By carefully structuring the sequence of courses, recognizing comparable course offerings and using courses in one program to count as electives in the other, the MPA-MS Nursing dual degree program allows students to complete both degrees in three years of full-time study, without compromising the professional standards of either program. The 42-credit hour MPA program and the 48-credit hour MS Nursing program can be completed as part of a 68-credit hour program (rather than 90 credit hours required to complete the two programs without the benefit of the dual degree structure).
The MPA-MS Nursing Dual Degree Program prepares students for nursing administrator positions in hospitals, health care facilities and community health agencies. Nurses who advance to administrative positions often find themselves struggling with their new responsibilities related to budgetary, human resources, organizational, policy and management matters. The dual-degree program is designed to ensure that students not only advance their professional nursing credentials, but also develop knowledge and skills for effective management. The dual-degree program takes advantage of the complementary foci of the two degree programs. Both programs have a clear commitment to preparing students to help their communities through advanced professional knowledge and skills. Accordingly, the dual degree emphasizes community health and professional management to prepare nurses to be effective administrators. The dual degree is targeted specifically to students in the Community Health Nursing program who have selected the Nurse Administrator role.
Students must apply and be admitted to both the MPA program and the MS Nursing program. These are separate applications and each requires an application fee to the Graduate School. Students who begin one program and then apply to the other program later will need to meet with the appropriate advisors for both programs to develop a customized program of study; completion within three years may not be possible for students who do not begin the programs in the same semester.

All applicants must submit the following:

- Online graduate degree application and application fee
- Transcripts from each college/university you have attended
- Two letters of recommendation
- Personal statement (2-3 pages) describing your reasons for pursuing graduate study, your career aspirations, your special interests within your field, and any unusual features of your background that might need explanation or be of interest to your program's admissions committee.
- Resume or Curriculum Vitae (max. 2 pages)
- Official GRE scores. GMAT scores may be submitted in lieu of GRE scores.

And, for international applicants:
- International Student Financial Statement form
- Official bank statement/proof of support
- Official TOEFL, IELTS, or PTE Academic scores

Applicants must also meet the following program-specific requirements:

MPA:
- Letters of recommendation
Letters of recommendation should be from individuals who know the applicant in a professional capacity, such as professors, work supervisors, and professionals from organizations where the applicant has served as a volunteer or in another capacity. When evaluating the letters of recommendation, the admissions committee looks for evidence of academic achievement, community involvement, and personal characteristics that suggests the applicant has the capacity to foster an institutional culture that advances democratic administration and governance.

- Personal statement
The personal statement should be no more than 500 words or two (2) double-spaced, typed pages and should answer the question,"Why do I want an MPA?" You may wish to describe your reasons for pursuing graduate studies in public administration, your career aspirations, your special interests within your field, and any unusual features of your background that might need explanation or be of interest to your program's admissions committee. In the personal statement, the committee assesses the student's commitment to public and/or nonprofit administration as well as his/her ability to communicate in writing.

- Significant work experience (5 or more years in the public and/or nonprofit sectors) can earn applicants a positive adjustment to their admissions scores. However, the lack of work experience does not result in a penalty.

MS Nursing:
- Undergraduate degree in nursing from a program which is accredited by a nursing accreditation organization
- Previous (successful completion of a) course in descriptive statistics
- A license to practice as a registered professional nurse
- Passing completion of the NCLEX examination (must be completed prior to the start of clinical courses)

Course outline

At present, we offer the opportunity to gain a postgraduate degree by research at MSc, MPhil or DPhil level. Study can be on either a full-time or a part-time basis. The minimum periods of study for achieving these research degrees are as follows:

- MSc – 1 year full-time or 2 years part-time
- MPhil – 2 years full-time or 4 years part-time
- DPhil – 3 years full-time or 6 years part-time

Specific projects that we would be happy to supervise immediately include:

Developmental Psychology

- Conceptual change
- Children’s mental models of natural phenomena
- Misconceptions of scientific theory and practice (in both children and adults)
- Science learning in schools
- Science teaching in schools
- Methods of investigating children’s knowledge

Music Psychology

- Expertise in sight-singing music:
- Expertise in any domain requires practice and involves the use of specific cognitive strategies. Research on sight-singing has suggested a number of factors involved in pitching sung notes, such as memory, reading intervals, the presence of other musical lines, and an understanding of tonality. This project would extend the existing research by carrying out a number of experiments on expert and less expert singers. (Note: this project could be extended to instrumental sight-reading.)
- Sung text intelligibility:
- A great deal of music is sung, and an important aspect of perceiving sung music is the extent to which the words can be understood. There are no doubt differences between understanding speech and sung words. This project would investigate a number of factors thought to affect the intelligibility of sung text, based on a previous exploratory survey questionnaire study, in a set of controlled experiments.
- Factors affecting music reading
- Effects of background music on various behaviours / cognitive abilities
- Factors affecting the understanding of sung text
- Gender and musical instrument playing as a function of experience

Cognition and Perception

- Expertise and strategies in cryptic crossword completion:
- Expertise in any domain requires practice and involves the use of specific cognitive strategies. An exploratory survey of expert cryptic crossword solvers has shed light on their solving habits and the role of motivation, but not really tackled the cognitive strategies involved. This project would investigate the cognitive aspects of cryptic crossword solving in experts, including looking at the role of group work when people solve crosswords together. Methods would include controlled experiments on anagram solving, clue recognition and solving, and completing part-answered clues, as well as the use of online verbal protocols during crossword solving.
- Expertise for problem solving
- Time estimation and processing
- Stroop effect in music reading
- Working memory and dual task performance

Educational Psychology

- Dyslexia
- Provision of special needs accommodations throughout education
- Effects and perceived benefits of special needs education post-education

General areas that we would be happy to supervise projects in include:

- Evolutionary psychology, particularly intergenerational conflict
- Psychology of religion
- Questionnaire design
- Object recognition and naming
- Reading for meaning in literary texts
- Discourse, authorship and readership
- Role of shame in counselling, therapy and education

Research

The Master of Science (MSc) is available as a research degree. Candidates seeking the degree on the basis of research undertake one year of supervised research on a topic with an area for which the first degree would be the degree of Bachelor of Science (two years if they are studying part-time), at the end of which they submit a thesis embodying the results of their research. This research must demonstrate familiarity with, and an understanding of the subject, its principal sources and authorities. It should display critical discrimination and a sense of proportion in evaluating evidence and the judgements of others. The subject should be dealt with in a competent and scholarly manner. Candidates who are awarded the degree of MSc will have demonstrated their ability to conduct independent research using a range of primary and/or secondary sources and to present this in an organised, coherent and scholarly manner. Candidates for the degree of MSc must already hold a good honours degree or the equivalent. Admission to the degree is normally on a provisional basis while the candidate, with the help of the supervisor, refines the proposal for the research, including developing a work plan and identifying the requirements for support and resources and how these will be met.

The degree of Master of Philosophy (MPhil) is a degree that is awarded on the basis of a thesis embodying the results of supervised research. Despite the name of the degree, it may be awarded in any subject or discipline. Candidates spend a period of two years full-time or four years part-time undertaking supervised research, at the end of which they submit a thesis embodying the results of that research. This thesis must demonstrate familiarity with, and an understanding of the subject, its principal sources and authorities. It should display critical discrimination and a sense of proportion in evaluating evidence and the judgements of others. The subject should be dealt with in a competent and scholarly manner.

The research embodied in the thesis for the degree of Master of Philosophy (MPhil) must advance understanding in the field or area of study concerned.

Candidates seeking the degree of Doctor of Philosophy on the basis of a thesis embodying the results of supervised research must already hold a good honours degree or the equivalent.

Admission to the degree is normally on a provisional basis while the candidate, with the help of the supervisor, refines the proposal for the research, including developing a work plan and identifying the requirements for support and resources and how these will be met.

HEC Paris’ Master in Management (MiM) is the international students’ gateway to the prestigious Grande Ecole program and a fantastic world of opportunities.

WORLD-CLASS STUDENT BODY

The Grande Ecole program is designed for high potential students from all backgrounds with little or no professional experience, driven to become influential leaders in tomorrow’s world.

Our 2014 intake included students from more than 40 nationalities, with half coming from outside Europe - http://www.hec.edu/Masters-programs/Master-s-Programs/Grande-Ecole/Master-in-Management/Meet-the-Students#block-21437

A UNIQUE TWO-PHASE CURRICULUM TO BOOST YOUR CAREER

The Grande Ecole curriculum (http://www.hec.edu/Masters-programs/Master-s-Programs/Grande-Ecole/Master-in-Management/Program-Details) is divided into a generalist phase and a specialization phase. The first phase concentrates on business fundamentals while the second one focuses on acquiring expertise around the professional goals of the student. The nature of the specialization determines the Master’s degree that the student will finally receive: Management, Management & Business Law, Management and Public Affairs…

This unique curriculum structure enables students to acquire both an excellent grounding in general management and an expertise in a specific field. We firmly believe this combination is the key success factor in training future leaders and making a lasting impact on the careers of our students. In fact, our graduates combine the rare ability to grasp the ‘global picture’ in all situations and a deep understanding that only experts can truly reach.

The program consists of:

> in M1: mandatory foundation courses in general management, electives and a managerial behavior seminar
> in M2: a specialization, an optional certificate and an in-depth research paper.

Moreover, the Grande Ecole program perfectly balances the development of practical leadership and professional skills with the more theoretical requirements, such as a final research paper within the specialization. Students are trained to become decision-makers while focusing on the academic specialization that they choose in light of their professional goals. With the diversity of courses and specializations available, students can develop expertise in several areas of business administration, shape their career plans, all while preparing their entry into the business world through company internships.

A WIDE RANGE OF SPECIALIZATIONS

In M2, students have access to a wide range of specializations, which then determine the Master’s degree that the student will finally receive:

> Master in Management: Strategy, Finance, Marketing, Financial Economics, Economics, Entrepreneurship, etc.
> Master in Public Affairs: Public Policy, International Relations, Diplomacy
> Master in Business Law
> Master in Sustainability and Social Innovation
> Master in Journalism (taught in French only)
> Master in Media, Arts & Creation (taught in French only)
> Master in Cognitive Sciences (with ENS Ulm)

This Joint Degree between HEC Paris and Ecole Polytechnique will equip students with both the technical skills and the strategic mindset to lead successfully any business career requiring a strong expertise in Big Data.

STUDY IN TWO GLOBALLY-RECOGNIZED INSTITUTIONS

Ecole Polytechnique (https://www.polytechnique.edu/en) and HEC Paris are both world leading academic institutions, renowned for the quality of their degrees, faculties and research (see HEC rankings http://www.hec.edu/Masters-programs/About/Rankings).

Their association within this Joint Degree represents the best Business/Engineering combination Europe could possibly offer, with extraordinary added value for the students who will follow this program in Big Data and Business.

LEAD THE DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION OF THE ECONOMY

Big data marks the beginning of a major transformation of the digital economy, which will significantly impact all industries. There are three main challenges to face:

> Technological: dealing with the explosion of data by managing the spread of vast amounts of information that is often very disorganized (IP addresses, fingerprinting, website logs, static web or warehouse data, social media, etc.)
> Scientific: replacing mass data with knowledge,i.e. developing the expertise that makes it possible to structure information, even out of tons of vague or corrupt data.
> Economic: managing data both to control risks and benefit from the new opportunities they offer. On the one hand, it is absolutely vital to be able to control the flow of information, anticipate data leaks, keep the information secure and ensure privacy. On the other hand, it is also essential to come up with solutions capable of transforming this flow of data into economic results and, at the same time, discover new sources of value from the data.

ACQUIRE THE SKILLS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN TOMORROW’S DIGITAL WORLD

Exploiting this vast amount of data requires the following:

> A mastery of the sophisticated mathematical techniques needed to extract the relevant information.
> An advanced understanding of the fields where this knowledge can be applied in order to be in a position to interpret the analysis results and make strategic decisions.
> A strong business mindset and an even stronger strategic expertise, to be able to fully benefit from the new opportunities involved with Big Data problematics and develop business solutions accordingly.
> The ability to suggest and then decide on the choice of IT structures, the ability to follow major changes in IT systems, etc.

Therefore the program has three objectives:

> To train students in data sciences which combines mathematic modelling, statistics, IT and visualization to convert masses of information into knowledge.
> To give students the tools to understand the newest data distributing structures and large scale calculations to ease decision-making and guide them in their choices.
> To form data ‘managers’ capable of exploiting the results from analysis to make strategic decisions at the heart of our changeable businesses.

MAKE THE MOST OF WORLDWIDE NETWORKING AND ALUMNI POWER

Students will benefit not only from the close ties that HEC Paris has developed with the business world but also those of Ecole Polytechnique, through various networking events, conferences and career fairs.

The HEC Alumni network alone, consists of more than 52,300 members in 127 countries.

CAREERS

As “Big Data” affects all kinds of companies and all sectors, students will have a very large range of career options upon graduation, from consulting firms to digital start-ups, not to mention very large multi-national companies.
In fact, as can be seen in all areas of cutting-edge innovation, there is a growing demand for high level managers who can combine strong technical skill with business know-how.

This is especially true when it comes to Big Data topics, and students graduating from data science and Big Data programs are therefore highly sought after on the job market.

The MPA + MS Student Affairs Administration Dual-Degree Program prepares students for administrative positions in college and university settings. Read more
The MPA + MS Student Affairs Administration Dual-Degree Program prepares students for administrative positions in college and university settings.

To be an effective leader in student affairs, professionals must first be knowledgeable of how students grow and develop during the college years and how institutions can be intentional in facilitating the growth process. Leaders in higher education need to employ proven managerial strategies in order to be successful and must pay careful attention to the management of human resources, finances, information technology, and physical infrastructure. In addition to this, leaders should know how to adjust their administrative style if problems are encountered and be able to ground both successes and shortcomings in administrative theory.

By carefully structuring the sequence of courses, recognizing comparable course offerings, and using courses in one program to count as electives in the other, students are often able to complete both degrees in three years of full-time study without compromising the professional standards of either program.

Successful completion of the dual-degree programs results in two degrees: a Master's in Public Administration (MPA) and a Master of Science in Student Affairs Administration.

The MPA-MSAA Dual Degree Program

The Master of Public Administration (MPA) and Master of Science in Student Affairs Administration (MSAA) programs both are housed within the College of Community and Public Affairs and are considered professional terminal degrees. By carefully structuring the sequence of courses, recognizing comparable course offerings and using courses in one program to count as electives in the other, the MPA-MSAA dual degree program allows students to complete both degrees in three years of full-time study, without compromising the professional standards of either program. The 42-credit hour MPA program and the 45-credit hour MS in Student Affairs Administration program can be completed as part of a 66-credit hour program (rather than 87 credit hours required to complete the two programs without the benefit of the dual degree structure).
The MPA-MSAA dual degree will prepare students for administrative positions in college and university settings. The MSAA program provides specialized training for students desiring to work in student affairs offices, while the MPA provides the knowledge and skills necessary for management. To be an effective leader in student affairs, professionals must first be knowledgeable of how students grow and develop during the college years and how institutions can be intentional in facilitating the growth process. This requires the study of organizational and student development theory as well as gaining hands-on experience in at least one student services office. Leaders in higher education also need to employ proven managerial strategies in order to be successful and must pay careful attention to the management of human resources, finances, information technology, and physical infrastructure. In addition to this, leaders should know how to adjust their administrative style if problems are encountered and be able to ground both successes and shortcomings in administrative theory.

A student holding a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering or a qualified senior during the last semester may apply for admission to graduate studies to work toward the non-thesis degree of Master of Engineering, majoring in his or her particular field of engineering.
The work in the major field will include one or two written reports (not necessarily involving results of research conducted by the candidate).

Degree Plan

The student’s graduate advisor, in consultation with the student, will develop the proposed degree plan. The degree plan must be completed and filed with the Office of Graduate and Professional Studies prior to the deadline imposed by the student’s college, and no later than 90 days prior to the date of the final oral examination. No exceptions are allowed.

This proposed degree plan should be submitted through the online Document Processing Submission System located at ogsdpss.tamu.edu.

Additional course work may be added to the approved degree plan by petition if it is deemed necessary by the graduate advisor to correct deficiencies in the student’s academic preparation. No further changes can be made to the degree plan once the student’s Request for Final Examination or Request for Exemption from Final Examination is approved.

Credit Requirement

A minimum of 30 semester credit hours of approved courses is required for the Master of Engineering degree.

Foreign Languages

No specific language requirement exists for the Master of Engineering degree.

Internship

The final examination is not to be administered until all other requirements for the degree, including any internship, have been substantially completed.

Time Limit

All degree requirements must be completed within a period of seven consecutive years for the degree to be granted. A course will be considered valid until seven years after the end of the semester in which it is taken. Graduate credit for course work that is more than seven calendar years old at the time of the final examination (oral or written) may not be used to satisfy degree requirements.

The MSc (by Research)

The MSc (by Research) admits any student with a Bachelors degree or higher in a science or social science subject, of the required standard, to study in science-facing aspects of Geography. This is a research degree, leading to presentation of a thesis and, if University conditions are met, graduation with an MSc degree. Full-time students must study for a minimum of one and maximum of two years to obtain this degree.

This, along with the Master of Arts (by research), provides experience of advanced research but without the commitment to a minimum of three years study required at the outset of a PhD. Because it is a 'science' degree, it is suitable for students with a science or engineering background, including physical geography.

Many of our students choose the MSc route as a means of helping them to decide if a PhD is for them or not. Others use the MSc as a means of gaining the further qualification necessary for progression in their career. Finally, some choose the MSc simply because they want to research something that has always interested them, aided and guided by experts in their chosen field of research. The emphasis is very much upon independent but supervised research. All students have at least two supervisors, who will guide students through to completion of a substantial piece of work which must be original, significant and contain publishable material. Along the way training in generic and subject-specific skills will be provided by the Department, Faculty and University, together with careful monitoring and assessment of progress.

The MA (by Research)

The MA (by Research) admits any student with a Bachelors degree or higher in an arts or social science subject, of the required standard, to study in social science-facing aspects of Geography. This is a research degree, leading to presentation of a thesis and, if University conditions are met, graduation with an M.A. degree. Full-time students must study for a minimum of one and maximum of two years to obtain this degree.

This, along with the Master of Science (by research), provides experience of adavanced research but without the commitment to a minimum of three years study required at the outset of a PhD. As it is an 'arts' degree, it is suitable for students with a social science or an arts background, including human geography.

The MSc Psychology (Conversion Degree) is an excellent fast-track route suitable for appropriately qualified individuals who do not have an undergraduate degree in psychology but who wish to study core areas of psychology and pursue a career in psychology. The programme is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) as conferring eligibility for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC). GBC is necessary if a student is interested in becoming a chartered psychologist. You can visit careers.bps.org.uk for further information about careers in psychology.

The programme is also suitable for those who have obtained a previous degree in psychology (home and overseas) that is not recognised by the BPS, and it may also be of particular interest to health and social care professionals with some background in psychology at degree level.

The programme provides a broad scientific education in psychology with a strong grounding in psychological theories and research methods, and explores how psychological research is conducted, analysed and reported. The programme is delivered through a series of guided learning exercises, culminating in an independent research project. Students receive carefully designed academic support throughout the programme.

Students develop a strong understanding of psychology as a discipline and acquire a range of skills, including critical thinking and analytical and research skills. On successful completion of the programme students will be able to evaluate, interpret and integrate arguments, evidence and empirical findings. These skills are appropriate to psychology as a discipline and suitable for a diverse range of employment opportunities.
