Update: Salisbury University Expands Satellite Campuses

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Salisbury University is expanding its academic options across Maryland.  Starting next fall, students will be able to get their degrees in interdisciplinary studies at the Eastern Shore Higher Education Center in Wye Mills and in social work at the Southern Maryland Higher Education Center.

The university has been awarded almost $800,000 to offer the two academic programs at regional higher education centers across Maryland.  With a constantly growing population, the Southern Maryland Higher Education Center in St. Mary's County will soon become the fourth satellite site in Maryland to offer accredited bachelor's and master's degrees in social work from SU. The degrees are supported by a $432,000 startup grant from the USM.

At the Eastern Shore Higher Education Center in Wye Mills, students can earn a B.A. in interdisciplinary studies. Courses allow them to gain research, analytical and communication skills, and explore the American experience across the arts, humanities and social sciences. One of seven SU programs offered at the ESHEC, the new degree also is supported by a $357,000 USM startup grant.

According to Associate Provost, Dr. Melanie Perreault, "we're really trying to work with the state, looking at work force needs and looking at areas of the state that are undeserved by higher education and giving students there the chance to earn a bachelors or masters degree."
