Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 3, 2008 — Saint Xavier University (www.sxuonline.com), an accredited, not-for-profit university based in Chicago, has unveiled a new Web site, www.sxuonline.com, to highlight three online master’s degree programs: SXU’s Master of Science in Nursing – Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL), Master of Science in Service Management, and Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction.
These cutting edge programs were designed with the same admission standards and rigorous curriculum as their ground campus counterparts but are now accessible to students across the country. Saint Xavier University is excited to offer these degrees as part of a long-term strategy to provide market-centric master’s programs tailored for today’s working professionals. These programs are designed with a three-day experiential residency at SXU’s Chicago campus to reinforce the concepts learned and allow valuable time to interact with faculty.
"The new program offerings allow Saint Xavier University to reach a larger, more diverse population of students," explained Richard Venneri, Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs, "Students throughout the country can now take advantage of these highly successful programs that have only been available on campus up until now. The online nature allows for personalized classes and an individualized structure without sacrificing the recognition of a regionally accredited University."
Given the current national economy, many working professionals are seeking additional credentials to protect their current positions or increase marketability. Also, with unpredictable fuel costs there is a demand for advanced education without driving to a fixed location. SXU’s online master’s degree programs provide small class sizes and convenient access to coursework on your schedule.
