Troy University offering master’s program in Bremerton this year

In the age of increased learning and continuing education, Troy University is now offering a Master of Science in Management program at Naval Hospital Bremerton beginning with the 2007-08 academic year.

“The experience is to have a management program, master’s program, that will be right in the area,” said Mary Ann Acosta, Troy University spokeswoman.

The courses will be offered in a classroom using a weekend format for the term beginning Aug. 13. The program, which is 36 credits, will feature a concentration in healthcare administration. Civilian students will be accepted into the program and access to Naval Hospital Bremerton can be arranged.

“(The program will offer) six management core classes, four classes in healthcare administration and electives in human resources and marketing,” Acosta added. “Students come with specialty backgrounds and skills and that information (in classes) can be very helpful with management positions.”

Troy University is a 120-year-old, fully-accredited, Division 1 public university with its main campus in Troy, Ala. It is the second largest provider of online education to the United States Army. The local office at Fort Lewis will provide administrative support and student services for the Bremerton program.

The Master of Science in Management program with the healthcare concentration has been offered successfully for several years to MultiCare Health Foundation employees in the Tacoma area. By offering the program in Bremerton, many students will have the opportunity to attend courses in person and online to enhance their education in the healthcare, business, marketing and human resources field.

Tuition for classroom-based courses is $795 per class and $945 for online classes. A degree-completion program for the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration is expected to open in the 2007-08 school year at the Green River Community College branch in Kent.

Acosta said the goal of the program is to “bring together professionals working in the Kitsap area.”
