New Site Location Accepting Applications for OU Nontraditional Graduate Programs

OU Advanced Programs’ newest degree program location, OU Health Sciences Center, is accepting applications for the spring. The OU Health Sciences Center will be offering a Master of Arts with a major in communication as well as a Master of Arts in interdisciplinary studies with a major in international relations.

Advanced Programs is a program within University of Oklahoma Outreach, and it delivers courses around the world to nontraditional students such as military personnel, civil service personnel and civilians. These degrees are intended for working adults and are offered in flexible time frames—nights and weekends—over a shorter period than traditional semester-long graduate courses.

“Thousands of military personnel and working adults have completed their master’s degrees through our flexible programs,” said Chris Sartorius, director of Advanced Programs/North America. “We are very excited about this new site at the OUHSC and the two outstanding programs we will be running there.”

OU’s graduate courses are fully accredited resident degree programs designed to provide up-to-date mid-career training. Courses are delivered worldwide to military personnel, civil service personnel and civilians.

Advanced Programs offers graduate degrees in the following areas:

  • Communication–M.A.
  • Economics–M.A.
  • Human Relations–M.H.R.
  • Instructional Leadership and Academic Curriculum (ILAC) – M. Ed.
  • International Relations –Interdisciplinary M.A.
  • Organizational Leadership – Interdisciplinary Ph.D.
  • Social Work–M.S.W.
