PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Florida State University Panama City will offer a new fully online major this upcoming fall.

It’s provided by the college of applied studies.

The new two-year program offers a master’s degree in organizational management and communication.

It’s designed to equip students with communication, leadership, and organizational behavior management skills needed to become a leader within any field.

One college official shares her excitement for the program and what impact she hopes it will have on potential students in the near future.

“The program is really exciting for the community, as well as being able to bring students across the country through the online environment to do their best as leaders and managers of any organization. So we’ve designed this program to work with our faculty here to make this program for any workforce,” said Amy Polick, FSU-PC Panama City Associate Dean of Academic Affairs.

Polick says the coursework is a blend of graduate-level courses in communication, leadership, and organizational behavior management, which applies behavior-based approaches to leading and managing any size organization or group.

The organization was built with flexibility in mind so working professionals, military personnel, and those employed in local industries can access specialized training for management and leadership. Applications for the program are open now; the deadline to apply for Fall 2021 is July 1st.

FSU-PC will also host a virtual showcase featuring their graduate programs via Zoom on Thursday, June 24th; starting at 5:00 p.m. CST.

The event will focus on graduate education, the application process, and the different programs offered at FSU-PC for fall 2021. Professionals interested in career advancement or students looking to advance skills and knowledge are invited to attend engage with faculty and staff in an open forum.

Currently, the Graduate Record Examinations (GMAT and GRE) requirement has been waived for fall 2021.

The event is free and open to the public.
