The University of Kansas now offers a variety of high-demand courses in Leavenworth starting this fall. Courses are offered off-post at the new Fairfield Inn throughout the fall semester while the University finds a permanent location. Students now have the opportunity pursue graduate coursework from the University of Kansas in project management, environmental assessment and leadership. Courses will integrate both military and civilian students, fostering rich learning opportunities and a dynamic educational environment. Students can also pursue courses from the online Bachelor of General Studies, which will help Soldiers and their families continue and complete their education even if they are transferred to another base.
The new programs now offered in Leavenworth include:
MS in Project Management
Bachelor of General Studies (Online)
MSB Supply Chain Management & Logistics
MA Global & International Studies (Interagency Track)
Graduate Certificate in Environmental Assessment
The master’s degree in project management will address how project management uses cross functional teams to assist in the process of planning, organizing, securing, leading, delegating and controlling of resources to achieve specific goals. The Graduate Certificate in Environmental Assessment provides certified specialization for military professionals interested in environmental security. The certificate is beneficial for service members preparing to transition as job growth in this sector is projected to continue to increase over the next decade. The MA Global & International Studies (Interagency Track) is an interdisciplinary program for SOF operators to prepare them for the interagency environments and expand their abilities to conceptualize and address issues from varying perspectives. The MSB Supply Chain Management & Logistics complements the training and experience of the military logistician, while providing a broader, civilian economy focus. This better enables officers to interact with civilian business partners and provides useful preparation for those who choose to pursue logistics careers after military service.
“These programs are available to both military and community members and are accommodating to working professionals,” says Carolyn McKnight, Director of Community Relations & Business Development KU Edwards Campus.
