We are excited to announce that the School of Undergraduate Studies, under the leadership of Dean James Lee, has developed the following two new degree programs and a concentration, which will be launched in the Fall 2014-2015 term:
B.A. in Early Childhood Education and Care
The Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education and Care prepares students to teach within and manage early education and care organizations. This comprehensive curriculum develops the competencies defined by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care as essential for leaders in this growing field. The dynamic course work addresses issues of social justice and inclusion of all children, focusing on special needs, diversity and English language learners. Electives enable students to tailor their studies to their particular career goals within the field.
B.S. in Managerial Accounting
The Bachelor of Science in Managerial Accounting program at Cambridge College is built on a core curriculum of 42 credits, designed to give students the skills and academic background to work in managerial accounting, and to sit for the Institute of Managerial Accountants’ (IMA) Certified Managerial Accountant (CMA) examination*. The curriculum focuses on the practical skills and knowledge-base which the IMA has identified as the essential to the field, and these learning outcomes and coursework are directly aligned with the practical experience and academic requirements of the CMA certification examination. Graduates will be well prepared to work in this exciting and growing field, with both the knowledge and application-based training to make important institutional decisions based on sound financial principles.
Elective Concentration -- Expressive Therapies
Expressive Therapies provides an interdisciplinary approach to psychology, human growth and the therapeutic encounter with an emphasis on the creative process as an important component of clinical insight and psychological healing. Having developed out of the specialized fields of art therapy, music therapy, dance therapy and psychodrama, the expressive therapies incorporates different expressive art modalities into a holistic, action-based approach to working with people with a broad spectrum of psychological and medical issues. Practitioners work with individuals, families and communities in a wide range of treatment settings including hospitals, clinics, community health centers, prisons, youth and geriatric institutions, as well as in private practice, often as part of treatment teams.
