Ave Maria University in Florida recently announced the creation of two new undergraduate majors in Education and Accounting.
University President Jim Towey said the new programs "will give our students even more opportunities to use their education to make contributions in key areas of our society, our classrooms and our financial markets."
According to the Ave Maria press release,
By providing degree programs in high-growth, high-demand areas, the University’s academics broaden the institution’s mission to provide an exceptional education in the tradition of Catholic thought.
The new programs will provide Ave Maria graduates with the ability to compete for jobs and once entering the workforce, have a significant impact on two areas where high-level, quality employees are needed today.
The University also expects that these pre-professional degree offerings will increase enrollment on the Southwest Florida campus as students and employers search for degree programs and graduates with these skills to help fill key positions in our educational and financial systems.
