Ambrose University College will have three new bachelor degree programs to offer this fall’s prospective students: Education, Business Administration and Music.
Applications have already arrived at the University for all three new programs reinforcing the faculty’s belief they have an exciting year ahead.
Dr. Bernie Potvin, Ambrose’s chair of education says the Education two-year degree program will be very competitive and geared towards training for elementary schools.
“We’ve chosen to start with a small cohort of 24 to 30 students,” says Potvin. “We want to start well and we want to start small.”
Ambrose is officially partnered with the Rocky View school division, making paid internships and work placements quite accessible for students and graduates.
The University’s four-year Business Administration degree program will accept students straight from high school. The number of seats will be based on how many people apply.
“We’ll admit all qualified students,” says Potvin.
It builds on foundations of accounting, economics, business and the ability to explore the emerging field of microfinance, says Potvin describing the new Business Program.
The last new fall program, bachelor of music, is performance-based compared to Ambrose’s existing BA of art in music, which is more theory and musical history-focused.
