New Online Master’s Degree Programs – October 2020

Colorado State University (CSU), Fordham University, Tulane University, the University of Wisconsin, and Yeshiva University are five accredited, non-profit universities that have recently announced the launch of new online master’s degree programs. These programs include online master’s in intellectual property and corporate compliance law, emergency and first responder psychology, entrepreneurial hospitality management, and professional communication.

Colorado State University – Online Master of Science in Emergency and First Responder Psychology Degree Program

Colorado State University (CSU) has begun accepting applicants for a new online Master of Science (MS) in Emergency and First Responder Psychology program. The program, which is one of the first of its kind in the country, has a 60-credit curriculum that includes coursework in group, couples, and family mental health counseling, performance and health psychology, and substance abuse, trauma, and crisis intervention. Designed to align with Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Program (CACREP) standards for professional training in clinical mental health counseling, the CSU Global program includes four internships for a total of 600 hours of site-based training and can thus prepare graduates to sit for the National Counselor Examination (NCE). The program does not require students to attend any in-person sessions at CSU’s campus.

Fordham University – Online Master of Laws in Corporate Compliance Degree Program

New York’s Fordham University and Fordham Law School have begun offering a fully online Master of Laws (LLM) in Corporate Compliance program. Students in the program take foundational courses in the US legal system, legal research, and corporate law, as well as specialized coursework in legal risk assessment, crisis management, fraud investigations, and financial crime. The program’s curriculum is designed to prepare students for legal work in the global banking and financial sectors, as well as in other fields in which corporate compliance with national and international laws and regulations are an important concern. Students can complete Fordham’s LLM in Corporate Compliance program in one to two years, depending on the number of courses taken per semester. The program, which requires applicants to hold a Juris Doctor (JD) degree from an accredited law school, does not require any campus visits.

The A.B. Freeman School of Business at New Orleans’ Tulane University will begin offering a new online Master of Management in Entrepreneurial Hospitality program in January of 2021.
