NORMAN, OKLA. – The University of Oklahoma Board of Regents met today to consider three new degree offerings and other items.

During the meeting, which was held virtually, the Regents approved three new online graduate degree programs. The board approved an Executive Master of Business Administration in Renewables and a Master of Arts in Strategic Communications and Digital Strategy, as well as an online delivery option for the existing Master of Science in Industrial and Systems Engineering. The proposed degree offerings will now go before the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education for final approval.

OU President Joseph Harroz Jr. noted that these graduate degrees will add to the suite of more than 30 graduate degree programs offered through OU Online.

“The graduate programs offered through OU Online reflect the university’s areas of academic strength and have been strategically designed to serve economic and societal needs,” Harroz said. “At OU, we have a strong tradition of supporting students within our state and across the globe through a number of world-class online graduate degree programs. Using innovative methods to expand graduate-level education at OU represents a true fulfillment of our public mission.”

The board will next meet in January.
