The Ohio University Board of Trustees has approved two new programs for the Fall Semester 2022 during a meeting held on June 13 and 14, the university has announced.

In a press release issued by the institution, two new degree programs are offered in the College of Fine Arts and in the College of Health Sciences and Professions.

One of the degrees is a Master of Arts in Applied Arts in Health in the School of Interdisciplinary Arts in the College of Fine Arts. The program is offered for students who already hold an undergraduate degree in fine arts and who want to expand their practice to get involved in arts in health care and community environments after graduation.

The Master of Applied Arts in Health lasts one year and is a 30-credit hour program. According to the university’s announcement, this would be one of only two programs in the country that offers this type of degree.

“A unique interdisciplinary degree that incorporates electives outside of fine arts, the program would be the only one in the country with a core curriculum designed and taught by fine arts clinicians and scholars who have the knowledge and extensive expertise in arts in health disciplines and developed exclusively for fine arts students,” the announcement reads.

The second new program is the Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Food Studies in the School of Applied Health Sciences and Wellness in the College of Health Sciences and Professions, where students can gain knowledge about how they live through the following:

  • the nutrition foundations
  • contemporary food awareness
  • cultural, social, and political aspects of food systems;
  • environment and sustainability

This undergraduate program is 120-credit hours, and students have the chance to interact with their professors in five colleges and several departments.

In addition, the board decided to change the broad-based and course fees, the payments that students must pay for a graduate program as well as eCampus rates.

Aviation course fees which have not changed in ten years, will now see an increase.  

The Master of Engineering Management has also proposed changes to its program fee, from $192 to $217 per credit hour, which request, according to the university, reflects the first rise since 2020.

Furthermore, fees for eCampus undergraduate courses at the university will also increase by $237 per credit hour to $304 per credit hour. Moreover, changes have been made for non-residents, with fees increasing from $3 to $5 per credit hour.

“There will also be a $25 per credit hour program fee for the nine core courses in the new online Bachelor of Science in Business,” the university notes.

Data indicate that fees for online programs at Ohio University have not changed since the fiscal year 2013.
