EDISON — Students attending Middlesex County College this fall will find several new academic programs that have been developed. The college offers new degrees or certificates in Biotechnology, Dietetics, and Technical Studies, plus four new programs options in the liberal arts, in African-American Studies, Genocide and the Holocaust, Early Childhood Education and Philosophy.
“It’s a way of getting students and faculty with like-minded interests to connect,” said Steven Barnhart, chairperson of the Department of History and Social Science, which is offering the liberal arts programs. “We also hope to connect with civic groups in those areas.”
The fall semester begins September 7 and there is still time to enroll.
In the non-credit area, the Division of Corporate and Community Education will offer five new certificate programs, including one in partnership with the Radiography Department. One very interesting new certificate program is in Electronic Health Records. The federal government is mandating that medical offices and hospitals adopt new record-keeping technology over the next few years, and this brand new program will assist you in learning the new technology and protocol.
