    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.

    For more information on Chowan University’s new School of Graduate Studies and master of education degree in elementary education, contact Chowan Associate Provost Kirk Peterson at peterk@chowan.edu.
