Even if you don’t live in Kansas, you can still be a Kansas State University student and connect with the Wildcat community. K-State Global Campus actively invests in the development of new online courses and programs to provide more educational options to adult students all across the globe. Now in its eighth annual program development grant funding cycle, K-State Global Campus has invested more than $2.6 million, developing a total of 400 courses, 15 degree programs, 24 certificates, seven conferences and three minors. 

“K-State Global Campus seeks to fulfill the university’s land-grant mission by extending educational resources to alumni and constituents who cannot come to our residential campuses due to other commitments in their lives,” said Dave Stewart, associate dean of K-State Global Campus. “Our ongoing effort in program development is a commitment to respond to this need and provide quality learning opportunities for K-State alumni and constituents.”

Online programs and courses below are among the newest offered through K-State Global Campus:

• The Professional Master of Business Administration (PMBA) is a 39-credit program designed for professionals with three to five years of experience. Some students who receive credit for prior courses may take as few as 30 credits. The PMBA program is part of the K-State College of Business Administration, among the elite 10 percent of business schools and colleges in the U.S. accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International). 

• The curriculum and instruction master’s degree now offers six areas of specialization including digital teaching and learning; educational computing, design and online learning; English as a second language; mathematics education; reading specialist; and teaching civics and government. 

• The family and community services master’s degree provides students with essential skills in leadership, management and implementation of programs and services for individuals, families and communities.

• The social justice education graduate certificate equips students to create and sustain meaningful change in communities and workplaces across many professions and disciplines.

 The financial therapy graduate certificate is the first of its kind in the nation. It provides professionals with training to improve clients’ financial health by integrating relational, behavioral, cognitive and emotional elements as they make personal financial decisions. 

• The dialogue, deliberation and public engagement graduate certificate, also available as a noncredit option, is a hybrid program with some courses online and some face-to-face. It covers planning processes for collaborative decision-making, communication and leadership skills, dialogic practices to help develop and maintain constructive working relationships, and proven frameworks for designing engagement processes for organizations, stakeholders and communities.

• Online data analytics courses help students understand and manage complex data sets, identify undiscovered patterns and provide actionable conclusions that allow companies or organizations to make better decisions.
