Moravian College is pleased to announce the creation of four new academic programs: pre-music therapy, sports management, public health (in partnership with East Stroudsburg University) and a defined pathway to a master’s degree in athletic training (in partnership with East Stroudsburg University). These programs will go into effect starting in Fall 2013, so it will be possible for students enrolling at Moravian in Fall 2013 to pursue these new programs!
Pre-music therapy is for students who wish to enter a graduate program in music therapy. Moravian has designed a program for students to go specifically from Moravian to a master’s program where an undergraduate music therapy degree is not required – thus students can enjoy all that Moravian’s stellar music program has to offer, and still pursue the therapy career to which they aspire.
Sports management is a new track within our management major. All courses for this program are offered at Moravian. An internship experience with a local or regional sports team is an expectation of the program. Because the major is management with a track in sports management, students will be prepared for a job within the sports management field or the broader business world.
The public health program serves an important and growing need in today’s society. The public health program serves for health education -- leading to prevention of disease -- and health care administration. Students complete half of their major courses at the ESU Bethlehem campus, and all other degree requirements and major requirements at Moravian.
Very often, students who wish to both play a varsity sport in college and pursue a career in athletic training aren’t able to do both because of the time commitment for both, or because of institutional ethical concerns about practicing the discipline on one’s own teammates. However, Moravian’s new partnership with ESU allows students to do just that: enroll at Moravian, earn a bachelor’s degree in any subject in 4 years, compete as a varsity athlete, and then, with the appropriate pre-requisite courses and grade-point average, earn admission into ESU’s master of science in athletic training program. (That’s right—be a biology major and then become an athletic trainer; or be a music major, then an athletic trainer!) Non-students athletes also have the opportunity to pursue this program as well. Accelerated graduate courses will be taught in downtown Bethlehem, and students accepted into this program can request to live in The HILL while completing their graduate studies!
To accommodate students applying to college this year who might be interested in one of these new programs, Moravian has extended its application deadline to April 5, 2013 (any student with any academic interest is welcome to take advantage of this extension). If you are interested in applying for admission to Moravian, please visit the Apply Now page on our website and follow the links to either the Common Application or the Moravian College Online Application.
