The graduate program open house was an educational and inspiring experience for the approximately 40 prospective students who attended the event on Wednesday, Nov. 10, in Grace Hall.

The open house began with a brief history of Cabrini College. Bruce Bryde, director of enrollment, explained that Cabrini would waive the application fee for all individuals interested in applying to the program during the open house. In fact, several individuals, who brought all of the necessary documents, were admitted to the program that night.

Bryde discussed how the program is designed for the working adult. For example, all classes take place in the late afternoon and evening. He also explained the timeline for full and part-time students. Bryde concluded his segment of the presentation with a virtual tour of Cabrini’s intimate campus.

“We enjoy the education that Cabrini’s undergraduate education program brings to us because of the emphasis on fieldwork. Our students go to the front of the line in the job market because employers know that our students are serious about their careers,” Bryde said.

Once Bryde concluded his presentation those people interested in Cabrini’s Master of Science in Organization Leadership program were escorted to another area of Grace Hall. This program is designed to give students a viable advantage in diverse fields, such as business, health care, media and finance.

During the second portion of the session Dr. Gary Bundy, director of graduate studies in education, spoke about the reality of the job market and the value of a Cabrini College education. He explained that sponsorship, visibility and credentials are what make people attractive to employers. He then discussed how Cabrini’s Master’s in Education program helps students attain these three key components to successfully enter the job market.

“Cabrini offers an affordable, convenient and high quality Master of Education,” Bundy said.

Bundy discussed that changes have been made involving the elimination of the kindergarten-through-sixth-grade-certification effective in 2013. He stressed the importance of student teaching and securing a job.

He explained that there is an influx of teachers entering the job market as a result of American’s making career changes and an increase in the number of schools offering teacher certifications.

Cabrini offers a teacher internship program that allows students to work while obtaining their degree. The Cabrini graduate education program assures students of a teaching position in Philadelphia, Norristown or Upper Darby school districts.

“The majority of Cabrini graduate students taking their certification exams score in the upper most cortile compared to other students in education programs throughout the commonwealth,” Bundy said.

Courses for The Master of Education and the Master of Science in Organization Leadership programs at Cabrini College are currently available for $575 per credit.
