On Saturday, July 28, the Admissions and the Marketing and Communications team represented the university at the Nation Media Group’s My Network Universities and Tertiary Institutions Career Fair held at the Kenya International Convention Centre (KICC).
The Fair, which was attended by over 500 participants drawn from local high schools, colleges, universities sought to provide guidance on career choices to high school students and graduates, as well as link university graduates with the job market.
Dean, School of Graduate Studies, Research and Extension Prof. Amos Njuguna, participated in a panel discussion where he emphasized the need for institutions of higher learning to offer market relevant degree programs.
USIU-Africa recently unveiled four new degree programs at undergraduate and graduate level.
The three new undergraduate programs include the university’s first foray into cinematic and creative arts through the Bachelor of Arts in Film Production and Directing, and the Bachelor of Arts in Animation, both of which will be offered through the School of Communication, Cinematic & Creative Arts.
The Bachelor of Science in Epidemiology & Biostatistics underlines the University’s intention to deepen its commitment to offering STEM programs, a good portion of which will be in the health sciences.
The Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy will be the third graduate program offered by the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, and is a testament to the University’s commitment to advance the use of psychological knowledge to benefit society and improve people’s lives.
