Under the direction of Dean of Graduate Studies Dr. Gwendolyn Harold, Clayton State will be conferring master’s degrees on a record 53 individuals who completed their coursework during the summer and fall 2011 semesters.
Clayton State currently has eight graduate programs; the Master of Science in Psychology, Master of Arts in Liberal Studies, Master of Arts in Teaching English, Master of Arts in Teaching Mathematics, Master of Business Administration, Master of Health Administration, Master of Science in Nursing and Master of Archival Studies.
Of special note at Friday’s ceremony will be the hooding (so-called because each master’s graduate receives a hood to go with his or her academic regalia) of Monica Randolph of Alpharetta. Randolph will receive the University’s first Master of Archival Studies degree.
