UHC Launches New Business, Allied Health Programs

NEW ORLEANS – The University of Holy Cross (formerly Our Lady of Holy Cross College) has launched new degree programs in both business and allied health. 

         UHC will offer two new business programs – the Master of Science in Management and Bachelor of Science in Accounting. UHC has also added three new programs within the Department of Allied Health – Associate of Science in Neurodiagnostic Technology, Bachelor of Science in Neurodiagnostic Technology and Bachelor of Health Sciences, curriculum for EEG Technologists.

         “These new degree programs are designed to be a flexible, comprehensive, and unique way to learn for typical full-time students and working professionals who need to maintain their full-time job while pursuing a degree,” said Dr. David “Buck” Landry, President of the University of Holy Cross. “These new programs are another sign of the growth UHC has seen over the last few years with our recent efforts to increase the focus on students and to ensure that we provide our students with the services and programs that they need to succeed.”

         The Master of Science in Management (MSM) program allows students to complete all of the coursework in a hybrid format trough integration of face-to-face and online instructional formats. This program has two tracks: the 30-credit hour MSM and the 39-credit hour MSM with an optional concentration in Operations Management or Healthcare Management.

         “The MSM degree will produce organizational leaders who can be successful in today's fast-paced business world by being able to identify complex problems, implement solutions, and make sound managerial decisions,” added President Landry.

         Although the primary market for the MSM program is Greater New Orleans Area, the hybrid delivery method of instruction with face-to-face classes scheduled on Saturdays, would allow this program to serve a much broader area. The potential radius of 150 miles would cover Southeast Louisiana, South Mississippi and West Alabama.

The third program is designed for EEG Technologists who have completed their clinical training but not the requirements for a baccalaureate degree, and who now wish to return to college to do so.
