SIUE Announces Undergraduate Degree in International Studies

2016-04-28 13:35:00 SIUE.edu

nastasia-sorinThe Illinois Board of Higher Education has recently been approved a new undergraduate degree in international studies at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville to begin in fall 2016.

The Bachelor of Arts in international studies, offered by the SIUE College of Arts and Sciences (CAS), will focus on the complex social, political, economic and cultural interrelations that exist among nations and regions of our increasingly globalized world, according to Sorin Nastasia, PhD, assistant professor in the Department of Applied Communication Studies and director of the new international studies program.

“In our increasingly globalized world, knowledge and skills related to international contexts and practices are key across many workplace settings,” Nastasia said. “In the past 10 years, there have been hundreds of thousands of export-related jobs and employment opportunities with foreign firms in the St. Louis metro area and across Illinois. The bachelor’s in international studies will prepare graduates for many positions in diplomacy or with non-profits, governmental organizations and businesses.”

CAS Dean Greg Budzban expressed his excitement for the launch of the international studies program, “There are so many different areas where this degree would be useful.” He also noted the many workplace settings in which students of this program may find employment upon graduation, including foreign service, foreign aid, U.S. government agencies, international intergovernmental organizations or international trade. Budzban said.

The major will offer three concentration areas: international relations and diplomacy; international arts, culture and communication; and international development and sustainability. As part of a program committed to global perspectives, students will be required to complete two levels of foreign language, participate in at least six credit hours of study abroad experience, and complete a senior assignment with an international focus.

“The degree can be customized and tailored to encompass the interests and career goals of each individual,” Nastasia said.

The interdisciplinary program will require students to complete four core courses. Students may also choose from an array of electives offered across academic areas of CAS, including:

Additional major electives from criminal justice studies, environmental sciences, public administration and policy analysis, social work and sociology are in the process of being added.

An internship with an international focus and an independent project with an international focus are not required, but highly encouraged as major electives.

With the first classes beginning in fall 2016, students may apply to the program by visiting siue.edu/apply. For more information, contact the SIUE Office of Admissions at 618-650-3705 or 800-447-SIUE.

SIUE School of Pharmacy Graduates Attain Near Perfect Residency Match Rate

2016-04-28 09:04:00 SIUE.edu

SIUE School of Pharmacy’s Dr. Jingyang Fan, Dr. Lisa Lubsch and student Sara Mohiuddin.For Southern Illinois University Edwardsville School of Pharmacy (SOP) graduates seeking to advance their educations and health care careers, pharmacy residency programs provide one such avenue.

Residencies provide postgraduate training, allowing the resident to practice direct patient care and practice management under the supervision of an experienced preceptor. Residents gain a competitive advantage in the job market, more clearly defined career goals, and a better perspective on which area of care best suits their interests.

The SOP works with the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) to match applicants into residency positions. Similar to matching programs used in other health professions, including medicine and dentistry, “the Match” provides an orderly process to help applicants obtain positions in residency programs of their choice and to help programs obtain applicants of their choice.

While 66 percent is the national average for being successfully matched as a resident, 90 percent of the SOP’s graduates pursuing residencies obtained a match.

“Our success in residency match reflects the quality of our students and the School’s PharmD program, as well as our amazing faculty's devotion to helping students,” said Jingyang Fan, PharmD, clinical associate professor of pharmacy practice.

In early December, students wishing to pursue residency begin a highly involved process of identifying and subsequently ranking their programs of choice. Similarly, residency programs compile a list ranking the desirable applicants in order of preference. All rank order lists are submitted to ASHP and run through a matching algorithm. The Match then places students into programs based entirely on the preferences of the rank order lists, and the Match list is announced in late spring.

“The CV review the faculty offer, as well as all of the residency happy hours were invaluable in preparing me for my residency application experience,” said fourth year student Cassy Collins, a native of Peoria. “The faculty truly does want to help in any way possible.”

“What a successful year,” said Lisa Lubsch, PharmD, clinical associate professor of pharmacy practice. “I am impressed by these students seeking further training to advance their careers and wish them the best year in training.”
