Board of Trustees approves adding graduate programs

Illinois State’s Board of Trustees has approved a new doctoral degree program in nursing practice and a master’s degree in anthropology.

The doctor of nursing practice program in Mennonite College of Nursing will prepare nurses to serve as clinical or administrative leaders and educators in a variety of settings.

The new master’s degree in anthropology will incorporate and expand on areas currently taught in the master’s program in archeology—prehistoric, historical and biological. Sequences in cultural anthropology and Japanese studies will be included as well.

Administered through the Department of Sociology & Anthropology, the program will prepare students for work in a broad range of government and private specializations.
