AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Augusta University announced the launch of 3 new master’s degree programs during a celebration event on Tuesday.

AU Online celebrated the official launch of the programs from 1 to 2:30 p.m. on the patio, outside of the Jaguar Student Activities Center on Walton Way.

The programs include Masters of Public Health, Education in Instruction, and Masters of Science in Information Security Management.

The goal is to make master’s programs available for more students.

“We are targeting those that can’t come to a campus. It’s not possible. They have lives, families, jobs. There’s no way for them to get to a physical campus, but they want to advance their career or even change their career. These are professionals who are focusing on the graduate educations, so these individuals have Bachelor’s degrees and are seeking to advance their career,” said Marc T. Austin, AU AU Associate Provost and Dean of AU Online.

Augusta University President Brooks A. Keel, AU Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Neil J. Mackinnon, AU Associate Provost and Dean of AU Online Marc T. Austin, along with students and faculty were in attendance at the event.

The courses will be available next Fall.
