Additional Info on the Phoenixville Education Campus released

Neumann College, which, along with the Phoenixville Education Campus at Franklin Commons, is set to open its doors in September, has announced plans for its initial educational offerings. The first is a master's of science in education.

The program can be completed in two years of part-time study. It is designed, he said, "for classroom teachers, or those who would like to become teachers, to earn the M.S. with certification in any of four areas: early childhood, elementary, secondary, or special education."

The second program is a certificate program in intelligence studies.

About options for programs in business, Bell said that Neumann officials would be talking with their colleagues among the participating colleges about possible collaborative programs.

But Neumann has already planned at least one other offering, a certificate program in intelligence studies. "This has been an offshoot of our criminal justice program here," said Bell.

This one-year, four-course program concentrates on methods in intelligence analysis, and supplements the concentration with electives in terrorism, organized crime, money laundering, drug smuggling, political corruption and Farsi. It "provides an opportunity for those who already have a college degree to enter a career field in which they can … help the national security effort," according to Ron Chance, professor of political science and criminal justice.

And that's not all! Two new schools have been announced as co-tenants. Joining Neumann and the previously announced Alvernia College and Montgomery County Community College will be Delaware County Community College and the Lansdale School of Business.

---
"At this point," Moskowitz said, "Neumann is coming in September and offering both a Master in Education program and a Certificate Program in Intelligence Analysis. Alvernia, MCCC, and DCCC will begin offering courses in January 2008. Lansdale School of Business will begin its work in Phoenixville in the Spring of 2008."
