The Master’s University Online is excited to announce eight new undergraduate degrees that will be launching in 2022 and 2023. The new degrees are all focused on the areas of communication and business.
Our online programs afford us the opportunity to reach those who could never come to our campus. These people can now be equipped to go to the ends of the earth and make their stand for Christ and Scripture
Marketing: designed for those pursuing a career in marketing, sales, or a related field. We teach our students how to channel their creativity within a business context by studying sales, product design, interpersonal skills, and metrics. Once they have learned the fundamental concepts and theories of marketing, our students then put them into practice through internship opportunities, which allow them to gain essential experience alongside working professionals.
Marketing Media: Companies must make strategic decisions about their offerings, supply chains, pricing, and above all – communication. How do you identify, cultivate, engage, retain and serve customers? Technology continues to constantly revolutionize how companies make choices about their communication and the media that will carry the branding messages. Learn to strategize, create, market, and grow a business through visual design, social media, copyediting, marketing, business data, and research – all the while building the Kingdom in the mission field that will be your company’s organization and putting the Gospel on display through the quality of your work.
Accounting: Study accounting theories and principles as recognized and practiced by professional accountants. They learn how to solve complex accounting problems using current tools and technologies. They also learn how to properly manage the financial transactions of individuals, companies, and other entities. Our students are trained in the necessary skills for both public accounting (CPA) and management accounting (CMA) careers.
Finance: Designed for students pursuing a career in financial services, whether as a real estate agent, stock broker, wealth manager, corporate finance officer, or in another related role. Our students accumulate expertise in financial analysis techniques, as well as knowledge of money management and contractual responsibilities.
Public Relations: Students who choose an emphasis in Public Relations take a combination of business and communication courses that prepare them to influence the opinions and choices of people within a free market. As they develop the skills needed to become calculated communication professionals, they are equipped with the ability to guard and uphold the reputations of their future companies.
Cinema & Digital Arts: TMU’s Cinema and Digital Arts (CDA) program equips students with the tools needed to compete in the evolving world of mass media. Our program is unique in that it teams students with industry professionals, giving them the opportunity to create productions on par with the entertainment industry. We are also distinct in our philosophy, training the next generation of artists to recognize God as the ultimate creative force and to reflect this knowledge in what (and how) they create.
Journalism: We believe that journalism, though it is in transition, remains a vital, growing profession populated by intelligent storytellers with a knack for clear communication across various forms of mass (and targeted) media. We also believe that journalism in all forms must be characterized by a love for and a commitment to truth and accuracy. And finally, we believe that followers of Jesus Christ are uniquely equipped to discern and communicate truth.
Creative Writing & Publishing: Designed for students who are passionate about content creation across the changing and expanding spectrum of communicative media, including fiction and non-fiction, photography, videography, journalism, and podcasting. CWP students choose from a wide variety of courses that provide opportunities to develop their unique creative interests, and they graduate with content creation skills that are increasingly in demand across diverse industries.
Each new online program has been carefully developed by TMU faculty, including Dr. Kevin Hill, Prof. Matt Green, Dr. John Beck, and Dr. Bob Dickson, overseen by Provost and Online Dean Dr. Mitch Hopewell. The programs will closely reflect their traditional counterparts in content and quality, while providing a format that is accessible to professionals around the world.
Hopewell says of the new majors, “We are excited to expand our offerings to serve a broader audience of men and women who seek an education taught through the lens of Scripture. Our online degrees allow access to a world-class education to Christians around the globe.”
Beck, interim dean of the University’s School of Business and Communication, is excited about the opportunities these new online offerings will bring: “Our students are facing unprecedented challenges in their careers and lives. These challenges require us to provide flexible, career-enhancing instruction from a biblical worldview. In each of these new programs, we have provided a solid biblical foundation, with the flexibility of an online format. Our purpose is to equip marketplace ministers to represent Christ with excellence in their professions and lives.”
Over the past year, TMU Online has served more than 900 students in 44 states and 22 countries. The program focuses on serving adult learners who are outside of the traditional college demographic, but who are committed to pursuing a biblically-based, Christ-centered education. Speaking on the importance of TMU Online’s programs, interim President Dr. Abner Chou says, “Our online programs afford us the opportunity to reach those who could never come to our campus. These people can now be equipped to go to the ends of the earth and make their stand for Christ and Scripture.”
