When it comes to developing visionary programs that meet a local work force need, California State University, San Marcos at Temecula has it covered.
“People who come to us want to know that their education or training will translate into a new job, new opportunity or skill set that has clear market value,” said Suzanne Lingold, associate dean. “The programs we are developing deliver on all counts.”
Among the new programs being launched this fall are the Biotechnology Laboratory Technician Certificate and the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) degree.
The new BSBA degree in Temecula can be completed on a full-time or part-time basis and is specifically designed for the working professional. A rigorous curriculum balances theory and application, incorporating professional training, writing mastery, presentation skills and group work expertise. Outstanding faculty and staff, a low faculty/student ratio, a unique Senior Experience Program and a cohort-based system ensure that students graduate on time and on budget, with the skills necessary to succeed in the finest companies in the world.
The new Biotechnology Laboratory Technician Certificate offers the skills necessary to secure posts as lab technicians or research assistants in the rapidly expanding biotechnology industry. This hands-on certificate can be completed in two semesters of study, or approximately eight months, and trains students to be well-versed in cutting-edge technologies and current market trends.
High-demand ongoing degree programs include the BS in kinesiology and, RN (Registered Nurse) to BSN (Bachelor of Science in Nursing), and ABSN (Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing). Working professionals seeking to increase their marketability appreciate the professional development certificate programs, such as Human Resources Management, Meeting and Event Planning, Digital Arts, and Environmental Leadership that provide cutting-edge information, perspective and training.
