Graduate Fair at The Dining Commons

Wednesday, October 23, 2019 • 11 a.m.-1 p.m. • The Dining Commons


If you have a passion for education and want to make a difference in the lives of children and their families in the K-12 environment, consider a career in teaching. Marian's teaching programs include the Master of Arts in Teaching, Master of Arts in Special Education, and Transition to Teaching licensure programs.

Training as a teacher at Marian University features hands-on classroom experience. The curriculum can be delivered online, on-campus, or in a hybrid format and be completed in just one or two years.

If you're already completing a degree in teaching, prepare further for a leadership role in the schools with our Master of Arts in Educational Leadership program.

Biomedical Sciences

If you want an advanced degree that will give you maximum flexibility for current and future career goals, consider earning a Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences (BMS) degree. Our BMS program has two tracks: capstone and thesis.

Students who have their eye on applying to medical school, but need to enhance their application, should consider the BMS capstone track. If you earn a 3.50 GPA or higher during the fall semester and have a 491 MCAT or higher, you're guaranteed an admission interview for our Doctor of Osteopathic (DO) program in the spring.* 

However, if you want to pursue a biomedical science research career working in a laboratory setting, choose the 38-credit thesis track. Get the preparation you need to work in applied research.


If you aspire to advance your nursing education and training beyond your four-year degree and want to amplify your impact on the health and wellbeing of others, learn more about our Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) programs: Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) and Nursing Anesthetist (CRNA).

CRNA-degreed nurses train to administer every type of anesthesia in any environment for all situations.

Advanced practice nurses operate with considerable autonomy and are in high demand across the country due to an aging population. As communities face a shortage of primary care physicians, FNPs are well equipped to assess and diagnose patients, order and interpret tests, write prescriptions, and manage chronic illnesses for children and adults.


If you want to help children, teens, adults, and families manage and overcome challenges that impact emotions, behavior, and relationships, look into our two-track Master of Science in Counseling program. Students prepare to enter the competitive workforce through either the school counselor or clinical mental health counselor tracks.

Whether you want to be a school counselor or work in a clinical mental health setting, the program's hands-on and clinical training components will help you get there.

Clinical mental health counselors are in high demand with an expected job growth rate of 22 percent through 2028. School counselors play vital roles in the emotional and educational successes of children in the K-12 environment.
