Le Moyne to Offer New Courses in Three Proposed Certificate Programs

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (For Immediate Release) … Beginning in January, the Department of Education and the School of Business at Le Moyne College will offer new courses that will serve as gateways to three timely and unique proposed certificate programs in leadership in health care, leadership in higher education and Native American studies education.

Housed within the College’s School of Business, the Leadership in Health Care Certificate, once finalized, would prepare students to address the challenges and opportunities facing health care managers and leaders in the 21st century.

Meanwhile, the proposed Leadership in Higher Education Certificate would equip individuals for leadership and administrative roles in higher education, and the proposed Native American Studies Education Certificate would provide academic preparation for those individuals working in education of Native American peoples and for certified teachers to fulfill New York state professional development and training requirements. Both certificate programs will be housed within the Department of Education.

New graduate courses for the spring 2012 semester include:

BUS 796 – Chaos in Health Care: Directing the Evolution

This course explores the interconnectedness of the health care system in America. The class uses multiple systems to investigate the business and social trends that force the need for creative and revolutionary approaches to health care, exploring the field both within the traditional walls of health care institutions, and within the outpatient and home-care settings. The class will explore the emerging trends that are changing this landscape.



This course will satisfy one of five required courses in a proposed Leadership in Health Care Certificate.



Begins Jan. 23; meets Mondays from 6-9 p.m. For more information and to register, call (315) 445-4786 or email leadhealthcare@lemoyne.edu.



EDG 671 – Introduction and Survey of American Higher Education

This course will provide an overview of contemporary American higher education. Education professionals will serve as guest speakers and represent the academic environment, financial operations, student development and institutional mission and advancement, offering various perspectives highlighting the administrative components and leadership roles in a higher education institution.



This course will satisfy one of four required courses in a proposed Leadership in Higher Education Certificate. The certificate is being designed to provide academic preparation and professional development to individuals who are currently employed or interested in positions of higher education administration or leadership.



Begins Jan. 24; course will be taught in a hybrid format meeting on campus the following Tuesdays from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.: 1/24, 1/31, 2/7, 2/14, 2/21, 2/28 and 3/13. The remainder of the course will be taught via Blackboard.

EDG 620 – Introduction to Native American Education

This course provides a historical overview of Native American education policy from assimilation to self-determination. It will examine resistance, resiliency and impacts of the legacy of colonization and will expose and critique dominant American myths of Native American history and culture that limits the voices and experiences of Native Americans.



This course will satisfy one of the five courses of a proposed Native American Studies Education Certificate. The certificate is being designed to provide an opportunity for students to infuse Native American knowledge and contributions within diverse demographic regions across disciplines and offers a rich context for fostering mutual respect and understanding for learners. Students will examine a broad base of research on the historical, theoretical and contemporary issues in Native American education. This certificate will provide academic preparation for those working in education of Native American peoples and for currently certified teachers to fulfill New York state requirements for maintaining professional development and training.



Begins Jan. 26; meets Thursdays from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. Documentation of an earned bachelor’s degree is required to register. For more information and to register, call (315) 445-4376 or email GradEd@lemoyne.edu.
