Anna Maria College announces that it will be offering two new academic programs for the start of the 2014-15 academic year. Both programs have been developed to meet the needs of the changing marketplace and prepare students for professional careers upon graduation.
The new major in Forensic Criminology will provide students with a specialized examination of the criminal justice system from both a sociological and scientific perspective. Forensic criminology, made popular by the many crime scene investigative television shows, studies the breadth of criminal activities and its control through the application of science to policing and the law. It also prepares students to be able to explore the depth of crime, its causes and criminal motivation to address legal and investigative questions.
According to Ann Marie Mires, Ph.D., assistant professor of Criminal Justice at AMC, “Forensic means the application of science to the law. Through a focus on evidence and process, students in the Forensic Criminology major at Anna Maria College will be challenged to assess systemic and societal responses to various criminal populations and case studies,” she explains. “Courses, labs and field experiences combine to ready students for careers in criminal justice and forensic investigations or to pursue further graduate studies,” adds Dr. Mires, who, prior to joining AMC, was responsible for establishing Forensic Anthropology as a specialty in the Massachusetts Office of the Medical Examiner.
With the rapid changes in the delivery of healthcare nationally, AMC is introducing a new major in Health and Community Services, designed for students interested in working in the health field in non-clinical roles. Graduates from this new academic offering will be able to work as an important member of a healthcare team to guide patients through a variety of complex systems including health plans, hospitals and ambulatory care organizations, health and human services, public health programs and medical offices.
“The Health and Community Services bachelor’s degree program is a unique and innovative new course of study,” shares Judith Kenary, BSN, MBA, Ed.D., Dean of the School of Fire and Health Sciences. “It will provide students with the skills necessary to assist individuals navigate the myriad changes and complexities of our evolving healthcare delivery system.”
