Historically Black University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff Is Adding Two New Graduate Programs

The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff has announced that it has received approval to offer two new graduate programs this fall. The Arkansas Higher Education Coordinating Board has approved an MBA and a master’s degree program in education-vocational rehabilitation — addiction counseling.

The MBA will consist of 36 credit hours of courses in accounting, economics, management, and organizational behavior. Students will have the option to select one of three specialization areas: 1) Gaming and Casino Management; 2) Hospitality Management; or 3) Business Analytics.

The new master’s degree program in education-vocational rehabilitation — addiction counseling will link theory, technique, and practice for the 60 credit hours needed for completion. In addition, this program will prepare students to sit for the national examination that, once passed, allows graduates to practice throughout the United States.

“Both of these programs will play integral roles in the growth of our current graduate program offerings,” said Robert Z. Carr, Jr., provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs. “As we continue to enhance learning opportunities for UAPB students, the development of these and other high quality, in-demand graduate programs are vital to the continued growth of our institution.”
