Fifteen international students will graduate from the Arkansas Tech University cohort master's degree program during a ceremony at the Doc Bryan Student Services Building Lecture Hall on Friday, June 18.
The ceremony will begin at 2 p.m. Members of the campus community are invited to attend. Photos of the event will be posted on www.arkansastechnews.com this afternoon.
The cohort master's degree program at Arkansas Tech is coordinated by the International and Multicultural Student Services Office (IMSSO).
The program allows international students to pursue a Master of Education in instructional technology degree or a Master of Arts in English degree with the Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages option.
According to the IMSSO Web site, the program is designed to provide students with a rigorous 11-month experience.
"These programs are ideal for educational professionals currently teaching who can obtain a one-year sabbatical from their duties to earn an advanced degree," states the IMSSO site.
