Graduate Programs Experience Enrollment Growth
Enrollment at the University of Findlay continues to remain strong. Fall enrollment for 2016 shows significant increases in the number of graduate students at the University with a 6.9 percent increase over last fall – 1,391 total graduate students compared to 1,301 the year before, and a 19 percent increase over fall 2014.
According to President Katherine Fell, Ph.D., the growth in the graduate student population is a result of the University’s strategic efforts to expand graduate programs to better serve regional, national and global professional needs.
Added to UF’s advanced degree offerings in recent years have been four graduate programs, including the Doctor of Education, Master of Science in Applied Security and Analytics, Master of Arts in Rhetoric and Writing, and the Master of Science in Health Informatics. Longer-established programs have also benefited from academic expansion efforts that have consequently attracted more students.
Eighth-day enrollment statistics show total enrollment at 4,128 students, excluding high school students who are part of the College Credit Plus program. This represents a 1.4 decrease in fall 2015 numbers. Undergraduate enrollment stands at 2,737 compared to 2,885 one year ago.
“Thanks to dedicated, creative faculty and staff, the University of Findlay remains a place where students from all over the world come to learn,” said President Katherine Fell, Ph.D.
