OKMULGEE, Oklahoma — The College of Muscogee (Creek) Nation are adding three new degree programs and transitioning another program to the Fall 2019 trimester.
The new programs are Associate of Science degrees in General Studies, Criminal Justice and Natural Resources.
CMN’s Acting Dean of Academic Affairs Mackie Moore spoke on the addition of these programs, beginning with Criminal Justice.
“With Criminal Justice being an Associate of Science, this program opens new paths and allows transferability to degree’s in legal and criminal justice fields that can be transferred to a four-year college for their bachelor’s” he said.
Moore said the General Studies Degree program is for students who want to get an Associates degree in an area not currently offered by CMN.
“This program is for students who want to get their basic courses in two years,” he said. “The hours that are obtained with this program can transfer to a four-year institution. It opens the doors for a lot of different areas the student can go into.”
Finally, there is the Natural Resources degree program being offered at CMN.
“Students can use this program to go into Animal Science or Plant Life,” Moore said. “This program attracts students who are interested in things such as soil conservation.”
Aside from the addition of the Natural Resources, General Education and Criminal Justice degree programs, CMN also offers Associate degrees in Tribal Services, Gaming, and Native American Studies along with two certificates programs in Gaming and the Mvskoke (Creek) Language.
Enrollment for the Fall 2019 semester began on June 3, with classes starting on September 4. For more information about enrolling into any of the degree programs offered through CMN, call: 918-549-2847 or visit them at www.cmn.edu.1 comment
