Filed in HBCUs on February 3, 2012
Xavier University of Louisiana has established two new undergraduate degree programs. Beginning this fall, the historically Black university in New Orleans will offer a bachelor’s degree program in communication studies and a bachelor of science degree program in public health sciences.
The communications degree is designed to build personal communication skills applicable to a variety of career options or to prepare students for graduate study.
The public health sciences major is geared to prepare students for entry-level positions in health-related fields or to pursue graduate study in several disciplines. Majors in public health sciences at Xavier will participate in internships at public health facilities as part of their curriculum.
