New Programs Enhance NCCU’s Academic Portfolio


North Carolina Central University (NCCU) will offer a new bachelor’s degree in biomedical sciences and a new master’s in higher education administration beginning in the 2019-2020 academic year.

NCCU is the only University of North Carolina System school to offer the bachelor’s in biomedical sciences. Housed in NCCU’s College of Arts and Sciences, the program will provide hands-on training along with face-to-face instruction and opportunities to participate in research at the university’s state-of-the-art Julius L. Chambers Biomedical/Biotechnology Research Institute (BBRI). The program will prepare students for careers in health-related biomedical professions.

“North Carolina Central University consistently develops and offers innovative programs for students to meet the growing demand of practitioners with advanced skills,” said Felecia M. Nave, Ph.D., provost and vice chancellor for Academic Affairs. “The new academic offerings will provide students with tools needed in the constantly changing career world.”

At NCCU’s School of Education, the Master of Science in higher education administration is designed to recruit current and prospective higher education professionals who desire to strengthen their skills and knowledge base through a graduate degree that will help them enhance their professional practices and qualify for advancement to mid-level supervisory positions. This fully online program through NCCU Online, the university’s distance learning portfolio, enables practitioners to maintain full-time employment as they pursue their graduate degree. Students may also tailor their course of study to meet specific needs by designing special tracks that align with career interests.

Recent reports by the U.S. Bureau of Labor indicate that job openings in the biosciences and higher education are projected to grow faster than average of other occupations from 2016 to 2026.
