3 Skills All Communications Majors Must Have #graduate #school #for #communication #majors

3 Skills All Communications Majors Must Have

As a budding communications major, you may be wondering what to do after college. The good news is that your degree has prepared you for success in many careers.

Communications majors are often highly attuned to current events and the world of media, they have strong public speaking and presentation skills and they know how to write well and craft convincing arguments. These “soft skills” will make you valuable to many employers, as will the “hard skills” you may have picked up over your four years in college, like web design, Photoshop or statistical research.

Here s a primer for how to describe your skills and turn them into quantifiable experiences for your r sum . We also have some advice on how to bolster your degree before graduation with some practical experience beyond the classroom:

You are a media and marketing expert.

You’ve learned to think critically about different forms of media and are keenly aware of underlying messages. You also know how to reach different audiences with your information or product. Given the importance of media and marketing in many industries, your expertise in these areas will definitely help you land a job.

How to develop this skill outside the classroom:

  • Seek an internship at a local network television station, or check out the opportunities at your college radio station or newspaper.
  • Query campus offices such as Resident Life, the Student Learning Center or the Career Center, which often hire students to help lead marketing initiatives on campus.
  • Land a position as a campus representative for a media company like Apple or Vault. You’ll get an inside look at the methods companies use to reach young people.

You are a practiced and persuasive public speaker.

Communications majors understand that research and enthusiasm can mean the difference between facing an engaged audience and staring at a room full of thumb twiddlers. Whether you have to pitch a concept to your boss, lead a conference call or simply interact with a customer, strong public speaking and presentation skills will be integral to your success after college.

How to develop this skill outside of the classroom:

  • Join your college’s speech and debate team to gain experience crafting and delivering a compelling argument.
  • Lend your voice to a student organization. Campus clubs are always looking for members to reach out to other students and organize social or community service events.
  • Become a peer tutor. Tutoring or instruction of any kind, not surprisingly, is one of the best ways to develop your communications skills.

You have strong quantitative and qualitative research skills.

Without research data, a marketing team can’t identify its target audience, lawmakers can’t create effective public policy and reporters would have to rely on hearsay. Your understanding of research methods will be a valuable asset for employers, whether you choose to pursue a career in academia, media, politics or marketing and public relations.

How to develop this skill outside of the classroom:

  • Snag an undergraduate assistantship with a faculty member whose interests align with your own. Many schools offer credit for academic research.
  • Seek a summer job with a consulting firm. These firms are interested in any brainy student who understands how to crunch numbers and translate their findings into layperson’s terms.
  • Investigate think tanks and research institutions that might offer internships for undergraduates who want to help collect data on important public policy issues, from drug abuse rates in the United States to the effectiveness of humanitarian aid programs abroad.

That communications degree was a smart choice whatever field you chose to pursue, you’ve developed skills that will help you excel. Understand how to sell those skills to a potential employer, and you’ll be able to successfully transition from undergrad to working professional.

If you re a high school student with communications aspirations, find a college with a strong program and plenty of opportunities to skillbuild in and beyond the classroom.

(B) Nonthesis option. A minimum of 30 credits in course work is required and must be divided among the following:

  1. 20 credits in chemistry courses numbered 500 or above (including one credit in Chem 501);
  2. 10 credits in chemistry courses numbered 400 or above, or related courses numbered 300 or above.
  3. A written and/or oral examination that covers graduate course work must be taken during the final semester in residence.

Doctor of Philosophy – Major in Chemistry

The student will enroll for at least 33 credit hours in courses. All students will take Chem 509 (Advanced Physical Chemistry) and obtain two credits in Chem 501 (Seminar). In addition, sufficient credit hours of research will be completed to meet a total minimum registration requirement of 78 credits.

The student is encouraged to take courses in related fields, e.g. mathematics, physics, chemical engineering, geochemistry, computer science, electronics, or biochemistry. This work can be designated as the minor or supporting field on the study program.

All Ph.D. candidates are required to participate in seminar (Chem 511) while in residence, even though not formally registered for credit in this course. Registration may be for zero credit.

Cumulative examinations are general examinations in the student’s field of specialization to judge the breadth of knowledge gained by the student from courses, lectures, and the literature, as well as the ability to use this knowledge in the solution of a variety of problems. Once started, a student must continue to take these examinations each time they are offered whenever the student is in residence and is eligible. If a given examination is not taken, a failing grade is received. Examinations are approximately three hours in length and are given four times each semester and, in exceptional cases, during the summer session. Normally, students will take examinations only in the chosen area of concentration, but they may elect to take them in other areas of chemistry. The student must obtain an average grade of 50% in eight examinations to continue in the Ph.D. program.

Shortly after completing the final cumulative examination, Ph.D. students are required to submit a written proposal on their doctoral research project and defend it at an oral examination by their graduate committee (Chem 590). The proposal will be limited to a maximum of 5,000 words, excluding the bibliography, and will consist of a statement of the proposed doctoral research problem, an in-depth discussion of the relevant literature, a listing of the major research objectives, a summary of the proposed experimental work plan, and an appropriate bibliography.

Tampa Colleges and Schools

Colleges in Tampa, Florida

There are at least 25 Tampa colleges serving tens of thousands of students each year. Institutions range considerably in both size and focus, but include both public and private colleges, universities, and technical or vocational schools. The following are just three of the largest colleges in Tampa (by enrollment):

  • University of South Florida. The University of South Florida is a public college offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in a broad range of subjects. According to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), USF’s 2013-2014 school year enrollment neared 41,500 students. Total estimated annual cost of tuition and fees that year was $6,410 for in-state students and $17,324 for out-of-state students.
  • Hillsborough Community College. HCC is a public, two-year community college offering primarily Associate degrees and certificates. Programs are designed with a mind for transfer to four-year institutions or workforce entry, depending on the discipline.The NCES reports that HCC’s total 2013-2014 enrollment exceeded 26,500. Total cost of tuition and fees that year was $2,506 for in-state students and $9,111 for out-of-state students.
  • University of Tampa. The University of Tampa is a private, not-for-profit institution offering Bachelor’s degrees, Master’s degrees and post-master’s certificates. The NCES reports a total 2013-2014 enrollment of just under 7,300 students, most of whom were undergraduates. As a private college, UT’s tuition and fees are the same for both in- and out-of-state students: $25,772 total in 2013-2014. On-campus room and board cost an estimated $9,388 that year.

Prospective students can learn more about other public and private universities in the Tampa area below, or by visiting NCES online.

Trade and Vocational Schools in Tampa

Trade and vocational schools provide students with career-ready skills in areas like Allied Health; Automotive Repair; Legal Assistance; Criminal Justice; and more. There are several of these types of career colleges across Tampa, though many also offer online degrees for students living outside of the area. The following are two of the largest Tampa, Florida colleges providing technical or vocational training, as reported by the NCES.

  • Ultimate Medical Academy – Tampa. The Ultimate Medical Academy is a private, two-year institution offering certificates and Associate degrees in health-related fields, like Medical and Dental assisting; Nursing; and Healthcare Management. The NCES reports that UMA served 11,170 students in Tampa during the 2013-2014 school year. Estimated tuition and fees for that year, for both in- and out-of-state students, was $15,550.
  • Everest University in Brandon. Everest College is a large, national career school that served $4,318 students on its Brandon Campus in the 2013-2014 school year. It also has a second, smaller campus in Tampa with fewer than 500 enrollments. Everest offers certificates and diplomas, Associate degrees, Bachelor’s degrees and Master’s degrees in a wide range of subjects. Estimated tuition and fees for 2013-2014 were $15,156.

Note that not all career schools report enrollment information, so there may be other large institutions not represented. We recommend contacting prospective schools directly to learn more.

Careers in Tampa

Tampa colleges are an investment that tends to pay-off in both earnings and overall employment. According to 2013 data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), Associate degree holders earned about $125 more per week on average than workers with high school diplomas alone. Bachelor’s degree holders earned about $450 more that year, and Master’s degree holders earned nearly $700 more, or about double the average weekly earnings for high school graduates. The disparity is even greater for workers with professional and doctoral degrees. The same trend also holds true for employment figures: unemployment rates tend to decline with more education.

The following careers reported the highest mean earnings in Tampa in May of 2013, per the BLS.

Most of the careers featured above require advanced doctoral or professional degrees, but some of the most popular careers in Tampa, such as nursing, information technology, and criminal justice, require just two- or four-year degrees.

NASP: The National Association of School Psychologists

About School Psychology

School psychologists are uniquely qualified members of school teams that support students’ abilities to learn and teachers’ abilities to teach. They apply expertise in mental health, learning, and behavior, to help children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally. School psychologists partner with families, teachers, school administrators, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments that strengthen connections among home, school, and the community.

The National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) represents and supports the profession of school psychology by advancing effective practices to improve students’ learning, behavior and mental health and maintaining essential standards for ethics and practice.

Who Are School Psychologists

School psychologists provide direct support and interventions to students, consult with teachers, families, and other school-employed mental health professionals (i.e. school counselors, school social workers) to improve support strategies, work with school administrators to improve school-wide practices and policies, and collaborate with community providers to coordinate needed services.

Becoming a School Psychologist

School psychologists typically complete either a specialist-level degree program (at least 60 graduate semester hours) or a doctoral degree (at least 90 graduate semester hours), both of which include a yearlong 1,200-hour supervised internship.

School psychologists must be credentialed by the state in which they work. They also may be nationally certified by the National School Psychology Certification Board. NASP sets standards for graduate preparation, credentialing, professional practice and ethics. The NASP Practice Model outlines the comprehensive services that school psychologists are encouraged to provide.

Media

School psychologists can provide expertise on issues facing schools and students such as learning disabilities, mental health issues, school safety and crisis prevention, and more. Please contact us to request an interview with a member of the association.

NASP Practice Model

The NASP Model for Comprehensive and Integrated School Psychological Services. also known as the NASP Practice Model, represents NASP’s official policy regarding the delivery of school psychological services.

Position Statements

Bullying Prevention and Intervention in Schools
School communities must implement robust prevention and intervention programs to address bullying.

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning Youth
Education and advocacy must be used to reduce discrimination and harassment against LGBTQ youth and promote positive social-emotional and educational development.

School Violence Prevention
Schools must implement purposeful, coordinated strategies that increase levels of safety and security and simultaneously promote student wellness and resilience.

Master of Science in Clinical Child and School Psychology

Why Study Clinical Child and School Psychology at SIUE?

This program is highly unique as it is one of only a handful of combined clinical child and school psychology programs in the nation. It anticipated many developments in both school and clinical child psychology as it emphasizes prevention, the ecological/systems approach, and the consultative role of the psychologist. Further, the program focuses on evidence based practices, such as behavioral and cognitive interventions. Finally, practica experiences are seen as a critical and ongoing adjunct to the academic component of the program, with students engaging in practica every semester.

The program includes two tracks: the Clinical Child track and School Psychology track. These tracks are designed to serve the needs of two groups of students. Students in the Clinical Child track will be prepared to work with children, adolescents, and their families in the health system and other community agencies, under the supervision of licensed healthcare providers. Clinical child psychology students are also well-prepared to pursue doctoral education at other universities following completion of their Master’s degrees. Some clinical child students are interested in becoming licensed; for that reason, we provide a web page about licensure .

The School Psychology track prepares students with knowledge and skills necessary for further education and training in the specialist degree program in school psychology. Students pursuing certification in school psychology are admitted to the master’s degree program with the expectation that they will go on to complete the specialist degree program in school psychology. Students in the School Psychology Track who continue on for the specialist degree after completing the master’s degree are eligible for certification as school psychologists in Illinois.

Curriculum across both tracks is equivalent during the first four semesters of training; practicum experiences are provided across various types of settings. Coursework and training experiences during the second year of the program, and particularly the latter part, are increasingly focused on either Clinical Child or School psychology.

Unique Strengths of the SIUE Master s in Clinical Child and School Psychology

The program has a number of unique strengths that allow it to stand out as a premier program in the nation, which include:

  • One of only a few combined programs in the nation
  • Practica begins immediately, during students first semester, and continues every following semester.
  • Ongoing partnerships with local school districts, Head Start. juvenile detention, and other local agencies
  • Breadth of training, including courses in prevention, psychotherapy, and crisis intervention
  • One of less than ten school psychology programs in the nation to include a course on autism assessment and intervention
  • Hosts two clinics unique to the St. Louis region, which are the Attention Behavior Clinic (ABC) and the Comprehensive Autism Spectrum Evaluation (CASE) site
  • Program was established in 1970 and the Specialist Program in School Psychology has been continuously fully accredited by NASP since 1999
  • Students work closely with faculty to develop their own thesis or research project
  • Students commonly present research at the annual conferences of the National Association of School Psychologists, Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies, American Psychological Association, and other national organizations.
  • Students commonly coauthor research publications with program faculty.
  • Most importantly, you will learn from award-winning faculty!
  • Dr. Stephen Hupp received the SIUE Teaching Recognition Award in 2011.
  • Dr. Jeremy Jewell received the Mental Health Hero 2015 award from Wellspring Resources as well as the Vaughn Vandegrift Research Mentor award for the fall of 2012.
  • Dr. Elizabeth McKenney received the Extra Effort Award from Edwardsville School District 7 in 2014 and in 2013 received the Early Career Scholarship from the Trainers of School Psychologists.
  • In an analysis of publication productivity among school psychology faculty in all NASP-accredited, specialist-level programs (Laurent Runia, 2016 ), Drs. Jewell and Hupp were ranked the 24 th and 25 th most productive researchers in the U.S.A.
  • In the same analysis (Laurent Runia, 2016 ), SIUE’s school psychology graduate program was ranked seventh in the nation in scholarly productivity.

Due to a national shortage of school psychologists, job prospects are outstanding for students who complete the school specialist degree. Prospects for students in the clinical child track are also very good. After the completion of their Master’s degree, clinical child track students find employment in a variety of clinical and community agencies under the supervision of a licensed professional. Students in the clinical child track are also highly successful at getting accepted into doctoral programs if they choose to apply.

Online Graduate Certificate in Mathematics

About the Program

The Graduate Certificate in Mathematics offers graduate level education in mathematics. The program is intended for students who wish to prepare for admission to graduate studies at another institution, or for holders of a Master’s degree in a discipline other than mathematics, who teach mathematics classes at the community college level. The program is also open to high school teachers who wish to obtain the qualification to teach Advanced Placement courses.

It should be noted that transfer of graduate credits to other institutions is not guaranteed.
However, all credits of the Graduate Certificate in Mathematics articulate into Indiana University East’s Master of Arts in Teaching, Mathematics (MAT). (The Graduate Certificate requirements are identical to the core requirements of the MAT)

Format of the Program

The Graduate Certificate is 100% online. It provides flexibility in scheduling and offers classes in Fall, Spring and Summer semesters.

Certificate Requirements

Students must complete 18 credits at the Graduate Level in Mathematics. At least 9 of these credits must be taken from IU East. At the beginning of the program, the Director of Graduate Studies in Mathematics will review your undergraduate transcripts and will decide which classes you will need to take. We realize that the requirements for undergraduate programs vary widely, and we will help you select courses that are one step beyond what you have taken as an undergraduate student.

Course requirements

Students must take one course from each of the following five areas:

It should be noted that MATH-M 215 (Calculus I), MATH-M 216 (Calculus II), MATH-M 311 (Calculus III), MATH-M 393 (Bridge to Abstract Mathematics), MATH-M 303 (Linear Algebra), MATH-M 403 (Modern Algebra), and MATH-M 413 (Intro to Real Analysis) are prerequisites for most of these classes. Unless the student has taken M 393 recently or is familiar with standard proof techniques, he or she will be required to take this class prior to enrolling in any of the graduate-level classes. Some of the mathematics courses are also offered in an online format, which would be open to students of the proposed program.

5 Graduate Degrees That Dont Pay Off #graduate #degrees #in #psychology

5 graduate degrees that don’t pay off

5 graduate degrees that don’t pay off

In today’s tough job market, many recent college graduates are enrolling in graduate programs to enhance their credentials and gain an edge with hiring managers. In some cases, the tactic may lead to lucrative job opportunities. A recent report from Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce found that a graduate degree can boost an individual’s earning power by more than 40 percent in some fields — but the true value can vary wildly from industry to industry.

In disciplines such as medicine, for instance, an advanced degree can provide a 190 percent salary increase over a pre-med-focused bachelor’s degree, according to the Georgetown study. For other programs, the return on investment isn’t as certain: In some cases, available job opportunities are scarce or low-paying, or employers may value relevant work experience more than another diploma.

Particularly if you’re planning to take out loans to attend graduate school, it pays to know what your realistic job prospects are, says Liz Pulliam Weston, a personal finance author and columnist for MSN Money. “A lot of schools will take your money and get you trained for jobs that don’t exist,” she cautions. “Take a buyer-beware attitude.”

Master of Fine Arts degrees

Students can obtain Master of Fine Arts, or MFA, degrees in disciplines including studio arts, creative writing, the performing arts and art criticism. Tuition costs vary, but at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, for instance, students can expect to pay more than $22,000 per term, plus the cost of housing, course books and other expenses.

That investment isn’t likely to pay off: The Georgetown study saw just a 3 percent boost in income potential for studio arts MFA graduates.

Kristen Harris, owner of Portfolio Creative, a staffing agency in Columbus, Ohio, says her recruiting clients always favor candidates with relevant experience and work samples over those with graduate arts degrees. “It’s hard to get that first work opportunity if you don’t have that education and training, but after that, it’s your portfolio and experience that speaks louder than your degree.”

Computer engineering

Computer engineering is a booming industry for job growth. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the market for software developers will grow by 30 percent between 2010 and 2020. Computer programmer jobs are growing at a 12 percent pace, which is about average. However, in most cases, there is little benefit for job seekers who go beyond a bachelor’s degree in the field.

The Georgetown study saw just a 16 percent boost in pay for students with graduate degrees in computer engineering.

Paul Silvio, senior vice president at Modis, a large information technology recruiting firm, confirms that his client base doesn’t place a high priority on graduate education. “The vast majority of jobs in IT are hands-on, where employees are utilizing a specific technology or skill set,” he says. “Candidates grow their expertise by growing their skill sets and interpersonal skills,” he says, rather than pursuing further academic qualifications.

PR, advertising and mass-media programs

The growth outlook for public relations positions is good, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The field is expected to grow by 21 percent between 2010 and 2020. However, as with the computer engineering industry, hands-on experience is more important than graduate degrees for job seekers. “The graduate degree doesn’t really get you anywhere,” says Weston.

Harris says her clients who need creative and marketing talent aren’t seeking candidates with graduate degrees. “Generally, we don’t get clients looking for an advanced degree unless they’re looking for a higher-level strategy focus,” she says.

In that case, however, they’re typically seeking applicants with a Master of Business Administration, rather than communications-focused degrees. According to the Georgetown study, employees with graduate degrees in advertising and public relations can only expect an earnings boost of 12 percent for their diploma; mass-media students might see an 11 percent increase.

A law degree from a fourth-tier school

The number of law school graduates rose by 11 percent between 1999 and 2009, according to The New York Times, yet the paper also reports that 15,000 attorney and legal staff positions were eliminated between 2008 and 2011. For law students — especially those from bottom-ranking schools — a high-paying job is no sure thing.

A 2011 National Association for Law Placement survey found that, while 88 percent of 2010 law school graduates were employed, not all grads had positions in their field. Nearly 9 percent worked in “other capacities,” and 11 percent worked part time. And while 18 percent of 2010 graduates were able to obtain starting salaries of around $160,000, nearly half of reporting graduates were making annual salaries that fell between $40,000 and $65,000.

No matter the quality of the law school, the education is pricey, and most students must obtain loans to pay tuition. Near the upper end of the spectrum at San Diego’s Thomas Jefferson School of Law — where 94 percent of the student body took out loans — students graduated with an average of more than $153,000 in student loan debt, according to U.S. News and World Report. That kind of loan will take a long time to pay off on a $50,000 salary.

Atmospheric sciences and meteorology

The atmospheric science field pays reasonably well. The Bureau of Labor Statistics found a median salary of $87,780 for all atmospheric scientists, including meteorologists. Median represents the midpoint pay, so half receive higher pay and half receive lower. Graduate education in the field is necessary for many research-focused positions at universities. However, government and private sector positions rarely require graduate education.

To that end, job seekers looking for a substantial income boost by obtaining a master’s degree or Ph.D. in the field will be sorely disappointed. Georgetown found a minuscule 1 percent increase in salary for employees with graduate degrees in the field. In this case, students should only pursue a graduate degree if they are truly interested in furthering their own education, rather than getting a bigger paycheck.

4 circumstances when two master – s degrees might make sense #college

4 circumstances when two master’s degrees might make sense

By now, the reasons to get a master s degree have been well-documented.

Sometimes, a job may require it, or at the very least you d be a more favorable job applicant with a master s degree. Sometimes, a master s degree can help you change fields, make you more of an expert in your field or purely fulfill you intellectually.

But what about two master s degrees? Do any of these initial reasons sound compelling, or is the idea completely bankrupt?

Here are four circumstances when two master s degrees could make sense.

1. When you can earn both degrees simultaneously

There are a couple of ways to earn two master s degrees at the same time: dual degree and joint degree programs.

Julia Kent, director of global communications and best practices for the Council of Graduate Schools, told U.S. News Word Report that both degrees show up on your diploma when you earn a dual degree.

Dual degree programs are organized by the university and often involve program overlap to minimize cost and time. Joint degrees are usually interdisciplinary, sometimes combining two or more areas of study in two separate departments of the same campus or at two different schools.

2. To be an even more compelling job applicant

It s not often that you ll come across a job ad looking for someone with two master s degrees. In fact, you may never seen one. But if two master s degrees complement each other well, in a field that s interdisciplinary, then a second master s degree may make sense for you.

For example, let s say you re a teacher who wants to teach two subjects or wants to eventually land in a specialized administration position. Perhaps having a bachelor s in education, a master s in one subject, and a master s in another subject may make you an attractive job applicant to some potential employers.

Or consider an applicant for a tech job that may require a master s degree, like a systems analyst. Now imagine if the applicant had a MBA as well. While some teaching programs offer different options to specialize in teaching more than one subject, and some MBA programs offer a tech emphasis, for some people, the in-depth instruction they ll receive from working on two master s degrees could make sense. Check with your advisor to learn about all your options.

This is a common reason people get the first master s degree, but perhaps even after getting a bachelor s and a first master s degree, you may still want to change fields or expand in your current field down the road. Depending on how drastic of a change you are looking to make, you could get a new associate s or bachelor s degree or go for the second master s degree.

If you don t have a background in the field you d like to enter, you may have to take some undergraduate courses to get into the graduate program. Check with your school, as that s not always the case.

4. For fun or intellectual fulfillment

If you flat out love to learn, and free courses offered through sites like Coursera aren t doing it for you, you may want to get a second master s degree. But consider these two factors.

For most, the cost is a biggie. While the cost of grad school wildly varies between programs and schools, it s probably not cheap (unless you land scholarships or grants, of course). Let s look at two examples. Tuition and fees for 12 in-state graduate credits at Kansas State University, as of 2013-14, cost $4,578.90. But master s degree students at Columbia University can expect to pay at least $20,000 a semester, depending on their program and financial aid situation.

Then there s the fact that you may not get into the program you want. Depending on the program, intellectual fulfillment as a reason for going may not be compelling enough to admissions offices, especially if it s a very career-focused program. If you don t get in, you can always find other ways to learn, like auditing classes or reading a bunch of books independently (which I understand may not be as fun.)

If you can justify the costs for the sake of learning, get a dual or joint degree, improve your chances of landing a job, or ensure a field change, then a second master s degree could be a good option. If not, you can always get a different kind of degree (such as an undergraduate degree. certificate, or Ph.D.) or find other ways to achieve your goals.

Kid genius brothers, 11 and 14, graduate high school and college this

Kid genius brothers, 11 and 14, graduate high school and college this weekend

Carson Huey-You, 14, graduated from Texas Christian University on May 13, becoming the youngest graduate in history. He earned a degree in physics and minors in Chinese and math. (Amy Peterson, Texas Christian University)

Claretta Kimp wants you to understand this:

Yes, she gave birth to two child prodigies, and yes, they’re graduating from high school and college this weekend at ages 11 and 14, respectively. Carson, her oldest, is leaving Texas Christian University with a degree in physics and minors in Chinese and math. Cannan, the kid brother, will head to TCU next fall to study astrophysics and engineering. The first wants to get a PhD, the other wants to be an astronaut.

All that, Kimp concedes, is impressive.

But as a mom, her sons’ academic achievements rank low among her favorite facts.

“Yes, they’re smart,” Kimp told The Washington Post, “but that’s just a small part of who they are.”

The brothers, she said, are also best friends, study partners and big fans of their puppy, Klaus. They wrestle and laugh and hold the door open for women, just like their mother taught them. At home, Carson and Cannan do not fight, not even during their epic Star Wars lightsaber battles that make Kimp cringe. And don’t worry, Kimp tells the peanut gallery, their social lives are perfectly adequate. Their childhoods haven’t suffered.

“My boys have more social skills than most adults,” she said. “They are just normal little boys who do normal little boy things.”

It was their brilliance, though, that first landed them in the spotlight.

Four years ago, at age 10, Carson was admitted to TCU in Fort Worth and he began classes as an 11-year-old. On Saturday, he’ll become the youngest graduate in the university’s history.

Kimp, who studied early education and business at Southern Illinois University, said she converted the spare bedroom in their home into a classroom before Carson was even walking. At first, he played with blocks there. Then she started sitting him in a chair for class.

He was so excited to learn, Kimp said, that they created a set school day from 9 a.m. to noon. But Carson would blow through the curriculum she planned in an hour. By age 2, he was reading books with chapters, and at age 3 he told his mom he wanted to learn calculus.

Kimp home-schooled Carson until he was 5 years old and learning at an eighth grade level. She knew he needed to “get out a little bit,” she said, but she struggled to find a school that was willing or able to accommodate him. She finally found a small, private Christian school and cold-called the receptionist.

“I’m a normal functioning human being and I’m totally for real,” she recalls saying on the phone. “Here’s my situation.”

The principal eventually accepted Carson, and five years later he graduated as co-valedictorian.

Then the search for a school willing to accept a child started all over again.

Kimp said they visited numerous college campuses and listened to lectures about the Ivy League. But when it came time to decide, TCU bubbled to the top.

Ultimately, the decision was Carson’s. He told his mom that TCU “felt right.”

“TCU is our Ivy League,” Kimp said.

Physics professor Magnus Rittby, a senior associate dean, became Carson’s mentor and, eventually, his research adviser. Rittby knew how to ease Carson’s anxieties, push him academically and, most importantly to Kimp, treat her son like the kid he is.

“This experience at TCU would not have been possible without Dr. Rittby,” she said.

Carson faced challenges most college kids don’t. Federal financial aid forms, for example, didn’t include his age in the drop-down menu, and his mom had to drive him an hour and a half to school every day in rush hour traffic. Kimp walked him to and from class. And he had a 9 p.m. bedtime — 11 p.m. if he had to cram for a big exam.

Kimp eventually moved the family closer to campus, so their commute shortened to eight minutes. And the juggling act got even easier once Cannan started tagging along to TCU.

Because Kimp never wanted to make her sons feel in intellectual competition with each other, the divorced mom tried to avoid forcing Cannan down the same path as Carson. She wanted him to find his own way.

Cannan began on the traditional route, attending kindergarten with kids his own age. But my second grade, he was bored, and asked to be home-schooled like Carson, reported the Dallas Morning News. Kimp thinks her eldest son’s thirst for learning rubbed off on Cannan.

Even after she would complete lessons with Cannan, Carson would swoop in to help with homework, demonstrating on the whiteboard in their home how to breeze through complex math equations.

“They know that they are blessed to have a sibling and to have each other,” Kimp told The Post.

With both sons, she said she enjoyed “seeing the lightbulb moments.”

It’s not often that an 11-year old enrolls in a university. We have such a gifted student at TCU. This week, we have the…

Cannan later enrolled in the same private high school that Carson attended. He went to the school to take exams, but mostly worked remotely from the TCU campus alongside his brother. Cannan even got to begin work on a research project with a TCU astronomy professor.

On Friday, he’ll walk at his high school graduation, and on Saturday, Carson will receive his college diploma.

And although her children are geniuses, Kimp chooses to measure her parental success in other ways.

Recently, Cannan and Carson were playing upstairs with their Star Wars lightsabers, gifts they got this year at Christmas. Made from hard plastic, they made a loud “whack!” every time they clashed together. Kimp listened from downstairs, waiting, she said, for an inevitable scream.

When it came from Carson, who had been thumped in the arm, she sat there for a minute to see what would happen next.

“Oh, I’m so sorry,” she heard Cannan said. “Let me rub it for you.”

She sat back feeling satisfied.

“Okay, yeah,” she said she thought to herself, “I’ve done a good job.”

This is the future – recent article about this this class and the professor.

Department of Mathematics, San Francisco State University (SFSU), 1600 Holloway Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94132. SFSU is accredited by Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

What are the students who succeeded in this online calculus class say and what advice they offer?

A student from summer 2016. Dear Professor Goetz, I would like to thank you and your team for all your help with this class. Your students have been really efficient with the feedback on the homework and I really appreciate that. Also, your lectures/videos were very clear and easy to understand, the summer class was definitely tough but I had fun.

Continuing student in 2016. I am writing you to inquire about adding your Math 227 Calculus II. Over the summer I completed Calculus I with your online class and received a B. I found a new appreciation for online classes and your class by far made me love online studying. I enjoyed the self paced instruction and I felt as if I was able to understand the material a lot better. The way your class was structured was very organized and is set up for student success. Hopefully I can join your class again.

Josephine, University of the Pacific, Summer 2010 Although this class was an online class, I felt that I got the full experience as if I were taking this class in person. The video lectures really helped me learn a lot since I was able to visualize everything Professor Goetz was doing and explaining. By doing all homework assignments and sharing my thoughts and answers with other students on the forum really helped me a lot. It allowed me to ask questions to receive help from fellow students. Not only did I get help, but I also got to help other students as well. For me, when I’m able to explain something I understand, it makes me remember the concepts even more. This class was absolutely spectacular, if Professor Goetz ever had another math course available online during the summer, I would definitely take it.

Lucas, The Citadel, Summer 2010 I was very pleased with this course. I have never been a math genius and the way that this course is designed helped me tremendously: the video lectures, forums, online notes, etc. I would highly recommend this course to any student who is trying to get ahead in their college credits. Fair warning though, it was not an easy summer course. You must remain motivated throughout the duration of the course and be sure to not get behind in the course load. All students have the opportunity to work ahead in the course and prevent this from happening. If you can do this, do it! Thanks Professor Goetz!

Chris, May 2008 I am going into the corporate banking world next year. I will take some of the tools I learned in this class, and make a lot of people money. Thanks once again Professor Goetz, it was a pleasure! Albeit not much pleasure stumped and sweating over graphs and such, but your enthusiasm and lectures gave me prospective of the bigger picture of mathematics. Isn’t that the point! Bravo to a teacher who understands this.

David – 20 May 2008, 07:42 PM The hardest part for me, as someone who hadn’t taken a math class in more than 5 years, was adjusting at the beginning of the semester. It was easy for forgotten algebraic principles and equivalencies to get in the way of new concept learning in the beginning. I was a little nervous at first because the first few assignments were taking much longer than anticipated, but it became much more comfortable once the algebraic rust fell away. Do review algebra first! I got a great amount of information from the lectures and online forum, but I found it also helpful to reinforce those concepts by reviewing the corresponding textbook sections. The textbook is good for the general concept and formula checking, but when you have a more specific question just shoot it off to the forum and the feedback comes almost immediately. Trying to teach concepts in the forum to someone else, I also found, was really a great way to lock down new concepts. If you’re doing your homework early and not many people are discussing your question on the forum yet, check the stream channel for short video clips (a huge collection) that can provide that one needed concept (or trick) to the problem. Another source for learning (you will see there are very many) are great links to math websites and even designated times to personally chat online, or call, teaching assistants about your questions. Procrastination will penalize you in this course. There were some homeworks that were considerably longer than others that required early starts for a good grade. Overall it was a great learning experience that was just very convenient. You could probably be a full time business traveler and still take the course. I feel much better about my math skills now. Before I took this course, a function was just an equation that was hard to evaluate without a graphing calculator. Simply a great class with a great professor and fellow students! by Arnold – Tuesday, 20 May 2008, 09:22 PM
How to succeed: Tip #1: Do not take this course over the summer unless you are.
a. Either very proficient with math (algebra and trigonometry);
b. Or you have a lot of time to devote to this class and all the homework. Tip #2: Regardless of your answer to #1, you must be willing to do a lot of work, including posting and sharing questions and answers. Tip #3: Really listen to the very first lecture where Dr. Goetz explains how Calculus came into being. That sets the stage for the entire course and its primary objective. Throughout (and especially In the middle) of the course, it is easy to lose sight of how the little concepts add up to something worthwhile or useful. Thinking back on the first lecture will help you see the bigger picture and might even give you the proper perspective to understand that troublesome derivative problem or that confusing integration problem. Seriously! Tip #4: Try on your own first. Active learning is the only way to pass the final exam! Tip #5: When tip #4 fails, use all the resources at hand: the homework forum, video excerpts of the lecture or similar problems, the grapher, external resources, even that expensive dry text book! Tip #6: When tip #4 works, take the time to give others tips or weigh in on questions posed by other students. This serves 2 purposes: it reinforces your learning and it builds your body of postings for that all-important class participation credit (which is worth an entire grade improvement)! Tip #7: Convince yourself that you love to solve all kinds of problems, including Calculus, even if that’s not entirely true. If you can get into the spirit of things, you will have some measure of fun to help temper the frustration and make the long hours of doing homework less tedious. Tip #8: Dr. Goetz and his staff are the best and they are looking after your best interest: to learn and have an appreciation for Calculus. So trust them and don’t be afraid to ask anything that would help you to make the most out of the class.
Enjoy and good luck!

The many influences that shape today s world inform the nursing curriculum at both the baccalaureate and Master levels. Consistent with the stated mission of Daemen College, the nursing philosophy embodies the ideals of leadership, love of learning, and dedication to the health and well being of both the local and global communities.

Palliative Care Nursing

Palliative care is the active total care of patients whose disease is not responsive to curative treatment. Control of pain, of other symptoms, and of psychological, social, and spiritual problems is paramount. The goal of palliative care is achievement of the best quality of life for patients and their families. (World Health Organization, 1990).

The Palliative Care Nursing program is one of the first graduate programs in New York State to focus on end of life care. The increasing use of high technology in health care and the dramatic growth of the aging population has fueled the demand for quality end of life care.

This innovative program will build on the student s previous nursing education and experience and present an interdisciplinary approach to improving end of life care. Intensive clinical experiences may be designed to meet the individual goals and interests of students. Specialization in specific areas of health care such as oncology, gerontology, hospice care, and chronic disease can be arranged using the wide variety of clinical agencies in the Western New York area.

The program can be completed in as little as 15 months (full-time) or on an individualized part-time basis. Classes are offered in a block-schedule format to meet the needs of working professionals.

Outcome Objectives

Upon completion of the masters program in palliative care nursing, the graduate will:

1. Attend to the health and illness experiences of clients from a variety of socio-cultural backgrounds.

2. Create a supportive, caring environment that enhances each client s dignity and acknowledges his/her strengths.

3. Use applicable research and theory to assist clients in changing modifiable risk factors.

4. Synthesize information from a variety of disciplines to develop diagnostic and treatment strategies for clients with chronic illnesses.

5. Work to enhance the lived experience for clients with chronic illnesses and those who are dying, and their significant others.

6. Provide therapeutic interventions and regimens that incorporate an understanding of the client s needs and desires, while considering multiple systems variables and the impact of these variables on treatment options (e.g. treatment efficacy, cost factors, and safety issues).

7. Work collaboratively with other health care team members in providing care for clients with complex health care needs.

8. Monitor the quality of health care provided to clients in a variety of settings.

9. Incorporate professional, legal, moral, and ethical standards into practice.

10. Critically analyze and synthesize research to determine applicability to clinical practice.

11. Develop a research project or thesis pertinent to advanced nursing practice.

12. Contribute to professional nursing through advanced nursing practice and professional involvement.

Curriculum Plan

TOTAL 30-32 credits

Post-Baccalaureate Palliative Care Certificate

The post-baccalaureate certificate program is designed for those nurses who wish to attain expertise in palliative care.
