    Ok, so I'm winding down my dual bachelor's degrees from EC. I'm 3 exams away from finishing my BSLS with a focus in psychology and health sciences. I'm 4 courses & 2 exams away from finishing my BS in Health Care Management. I should finish the BSLS by the end of Dec. with conferral probably in Feb. The BSHS will be done in July.

    I'm looking for suggestions on recommended online graduate programs that might allow me to split my hours between two majors, like WNM. Their program won't work for me because of the major options. I'm currently teaching in an AAS program, F2F and online, so I would like a master's program that will give me two 18 hour areas in teaching specialties, if possible. I would like either health sciences and business or health science and psychology. I was thinking about an MBA to make me marketable both in education, but also in commercial health care areas, but, I don't want to teach regular business classes and I'm not sure what other teaching areas the MBA will give me. My background has always been in health care, health insurance or teaching allied health courses. I would love to stay with teaching allied health courses, but I'm having trouble finding an appropriate program. I'm stuck trying to find something that will work long term both in the academic world and private industry. I live in a small rural area so teaching jobs in specialized areas might not last.

    Does anyone have any suggestions? I know I need to start getting my ducks lined up so I can apply for fall somewhere. Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated. Sorry for the long post, but I'm getting desperate and searching on my own isn't getting me what I need. I'm now coming to the experts! Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions!

    At the risk of being unhelpful, I'd like to suggest that you stop using acronyms. EC? BSLS? WNM?

    I posted this to your thread in the IC forums but I'll add it here too.

    TUI has a joint MS-MBA program. Here is a quote from the TUI catalog:

    It is a total of 64 credits though so it's only 8 credits less than two full Masters. If you live in CA or work for any local, state, or federal government agency they give a pretty good discount.

    EC - Excelsior College
    BSLS - Bachelor Science Liberal Studies
    WNM - Western New Mexico (I think)

    Take a look at University of Maryland University College. They have a number of dual business degrees including several MBA combos.

    I'm not really sure how that will help Kizmet figure out acronyms. :)

    For the healthcare and business combo, Davenport University has a 39-hr. MBA in Health Care Management with 18-hr. concentration.

    NOTE: The Tedmeister has a much younger cousin who is studying for her MBA in HCM at Davenport and she is a satisfied customer. So I could be biased.

    It's not so much that I can't figure out the acronyms, it's more that we have a lot of newbies and lurkers who may not understand them. I'm just trying to be kind to those who haven't been around for very long.

    Amberton University has an MA program in Professional Development. Its kind of like Western New Mexico University, where you can choose your concentrations in different areas. I know they have some in Psychology, Business Administration and some interesting classes in Counseling among others as their areas of concentration.
