IU Kokomo introduces new degreeprograms

Posted: Monday, June 27, 2011 9:19 am
Indiana University Kokomo has been transitioning itself into a forceto be reckoned with in the regional campus scene, and with theaddition of 10 new degrees, other regional campuses had better watch out.IU Kokomo has always focused on giving students a well-rounded education in the liberal arts, but that has been a detriment to some of the students focusing in the hard sciences. When Chancellor Michael Harris came to the campus, it was one of the first things herecognized. He felt the university needed to offer more Bachelor of Science degrees to go with their Bachelor of Arts degrees. Students with B.S. degrees spend more time taking classes in their major."When Chancellor Harris came tocampus, that was obviously one thing thathe really noticed was that we had a wholecomplement of B.A. degrees, but really not a complementof B.S. degrees," said Susan Sciame-Giesecke, executivevice chancellor of academic affairs. "He urged all of us toreally take a look at that because he felt it was reallyimportant that we have a full menu of options to offer our students."After the proposals went out, it was a matter of waitingfor approval from the Indiana University Board of Trustees and the Indiana Commission on Higher Education."I am delighted that the Commission for Higher Education has approved our request for additional degree programs, which will help Indiana University Kokomomeet the needs of the region," said Harris. "With theaddition of these new programs, we will continue to provide academic excellence and student success,contributing to the economic well-being and quality of life in north-central Indiana."Harris noted that providing these additional majors isnecessary to the growth of north-central Indiana with thechanging economy."We are moving from a traditional manufacturing and agricultural society to a global economy, which is based

on knowledge, innovation and entrepreneurship," he said."We have to change the way we compete in order tocontinue to allow for the American dream to go on."Two of the new degrees, biochemistry and health sciences, never before have been offered at Indiana UniversityKokomo.The additional eight programs, currently offered as B.A. degrees, now will be offered as B.S. degrees as well. Theyinclude biological and physical sciences, chemistry, biology, psychology, mathematics, sociology, new media and communication.Sciame-Giesecke discussed the importance of offering several of the new programs:"The B.S. in biology and chemistry is really important for many students when they are thinking about professionalschools like medical school or dental school."The B.S. in new media really allows students to do more of the practical kinds of courses that they want to take,like writing for the web and graphic arts, where they have time to concentrate on that and really develop their  portfolio of skills."The B.S. in sociology really was directed towards a concentration in applied sociology and human services. Itallows students who really are interested in doing more social work kinds of activities to really focus on that. Whenyou major in that, you have to do a lot of interning -- a lot of practicums -- because you obviously want to belearning those skills with the different populations."Sciame-Giesecke said the university still will produce well-rounded students under the new degree programs, and their liberal arts education will not suffer."I think we see it more as an opportunity to really educate students when they come in and talk to them about theadvantages of both," said Sciame-Giesecke. "Don't get me wrong; there still is a nice compliment of generaleducation and rounding in the B.S. program. Students still have to meet the general education requirements."They are still getting a little piece of some things. They are probably not getting as much depth in some of theareas they would have gotten."She also feels that IU Kokomo's small size will contribute to attracting B.S. students."We do believe a lot of students are overlooking the advantage of being in a small school with faculty who willreally help you know that you are well-trained and well-versed in what you want to do," said Sciame-Giesecke.She shared a quote that Harris likes to make."Chancellor Harris always says you get a private school experience at a public school price," said Sciame-Giesecke.Students can start enrolling in the new programs now.
