MURFREESBORO — Chowan University will launch a graduate

school in the fall of 2010, according to an announcement from the university.

Chowan, one of five colleges affiliated with the Baptist

State Convention of North Carolina, has been approved by the Commission on

Colleges of the SACS accreditation body to offer a master’s degree in

elementary education.

The new program will be offered with employed teachers in

mind who are seeking a graduate degree.

Classes will be offered at night, on a schedule that allows

degree completion in two years.

Other master’s level degree offerings will follow in Chowan

University’s School of Graduate Studies, in disciplines such as psychological

counseling, business administration and sports management.

“The significance of this action cannot be overstated,” said

Chowan University President Christopher White. “It is a commendation of

Chowan’s academic quality, fiscal soundness and prospects for continued

growth.”

This announcement follows closely on the heels of Chowan

University reaching a record enrollment, breaking the 1,000 student goal.
