NCU’s School of Education Announces New Specializations to Help Expand Valued Skills

With insightful feedback from our students, and rigorous research on emerging trends in the field by Northcentral University’s faculty and curriculum experts, NCU’s School of Education is launching new in-demand education specializations today:

Announcing the NCU Marriage and Family Sciences Community Hope Scholarship

Marriage and family therapy gives hope to many. To celebrate its important role in today’s society, Northcentral University is pleased to announce two full tuition scholarships for new students starting a master’s or doctoral program* in the Department of Marriage and Family Sciences.

NCU August Back to School Scholarship Recipient: Kessiah Young

Kessiah Young researched doctoral programs for three years, and talked with nearly 12 universities, but none were a good fit. That all changed when Young spoke with Mary Patterson, an executive enrollment specialist at NCU.

“Mary had a certain gift for connecting with me and was genuinely interested in my background, interests, and motives for pursuing a PhD. This allowed her to make the appropriate recommendations,” said Young. “This is definitely a community of which I wanted to be a member. I am ecstatic that I now belong!”

NCU August Back to School Scholarship Recipient: Charlene Carlberg

For Charlene Carlberg, a single mother of three children, receiving the NCU August Back to School Scholarship is a dream come true. As an educator for 23 years, Carlberg is pursuing a Doctor of Education with a specialization in curriculum and teaching to further determine instructional practices that support the achievement of all students.

NCU Provost to be Featured on The Balancing Act Airing on Lifetime Television®

Northcentral University Provost, Dr. David Harpool, will be featured on “The Balancing Act airing on Lifetime Television®” to discuss Northcentral’s unique approach to graduate education. Dr. Harpool will share why Northcentral is ideal for self-starters and independent thinkers who want a premier education. He will also highlight our one-to-one learning model with flexible access to students no matter where they live.

Congratulations to Our NCU August Back to School Scholarship Recipients!

Northcentral University is pleased to announce the three new students who were chosen as recipients of full tuition scholarships for the master’s or doctoral degree programs of their choice!

Recipients were selected on the strength of their written essay on the topic, “How will going back to school to receive an advanced degree from NCU help you grow and expand contributions to your chosen field of study?”

NCU July Bright Future Scholarship Recipient: Lynnette Jimenez

Receiving the July NCU Bright Future Scholarship not only benefits Lynnette Jimenez, who is pursuing a Doctor of Education with a focus on E-Learning , but will also support her efforts to help the underprivileged in El Salvador.

July NCU Bright Future Scholarship Recipient: Peter-Nam Dinh

As one of the July NCU Bright Future Scholarship recipients, Peter-Nam Dinh believes that this opportunity symbolizes and confirms that he has chosen the right career path. 

According to Dinh, “Without the burden of tuition, I can devote much more of my energy to becoming the best I can be in my chosen field.  This scholarship is a life changer.” 

July NCU Future Scholarship Recipient: Hali Hunt

“Advanced degrees through higher education have always been a childhood dream of mine,” says Hali Hunt, one of the July NCU Bright Future Scholarship recipients. “I will be the first male in my family to obtain such a prestigious accomplishment.” 

NCU Bright Future Scholarship Recipient: Marcia Ublies

“Regardless of what is going on in your life, never give up on your passion,” says Marcia Ublies, one of the June winners of the NCU Bright Future Scholarship. “If you continue to press through the pain, in the end you will be victorious.”

Overwhelmed with so much going on in her life and compounded by a death in the family, Ublies came close to not finishing her scholarship application, but ultimately she persevered.
