Centenary University Announces New Academic Programs

Centenary University is pleased to announce the following new academic programs:

Social Media Marketing

Businesses are looking for employees who have the latest skills to compete in an ever-changing, global and technology-filled world.  As social, mobile, and cloud solutions continue to dominate the market, employers look to the next generation of employees to bring their brands into the twenty-first century. Centenary’s Social Media Marketing is a unique program, where students earn a B.S. Business Administration in Social Media Marketing concentration or combine a Social Media Marketing minor with other majors, such as Visual Arts or Communication. Students can also enhance their career with a Social Media Marketing Certificate.  Our technology center, #theVIBE, provides students access to the latest in Social Media tools via a fun, hands-on approach.

Forensic Science

Forensic Science is the application of science to the investigation of crime.  It is an intense field that combines a deep understanding of the physical sciences, knowledge of the law, and your intuition. Centenary’s Bachelor of Science in Forensic Science is designed to help students explore different types of crimes, understand what types of evidence are collected from crime scenes, and how to interpret and collaborate information that is gathered from crime scenes.  A concentration in Forensic Science for Biology majors is also offered that combines the benefits of both the biology and the criminal justice programs, allowing students interested in both fields to pursue new career options.

Technological advances in science as well as glamorized television shows such as “CSI”, “Bones”, “NCIS”, and “Criminal Minds” have made Forensic Science one of the fastest growing fields in the STEM arena.  Interestingly, the great success of these shows has also increased the need for specialists in this area, as prosecutors find the jury increasingly demanding that convincing proof of guilt (obtained using forensic-science methods and techniques) be produced to them in order to obtain a conviction.  This career is in high demand; it is attractive, exciting, and appeals to students from different backgrounds with highly focused goals and interests.

Accounting/Finance (CPA Track)

Students majoring in Accounting/Finance: CPA Track plan to pursue careers in Accountancy, many as Certified Public Accountants (C.P.A.).  Centenary’s dual major will fully prepare students for the CPA test/license with 150 required credits in only four years, rather than the traditional five years.  Centenary’s curriculum is real-world and hands-on.

Students pursuing a dual major in Accounting/Finance have access to a wider variety of career options.  This degree combination is extremely useful for those interested in careers in business, finance, accounting, and economics.

Interested students can contact the Admissions Office at 908-852-1400 or at CentUAdmissions@centenaryuniversity.edu.  Our admissions counselors are available to meet with you and our staff at your school.  Call us now to set up a visit.
