Professionals seeking advanced degrees from the University of Kansas will have five new opportunities from the Overland Park-based Edwards campus starting this fall.
The five new degree programs are for graduate students in education, business, accounting and international studies.
Christine Falk, Edwards campus marketing coordinator, says that new academic programs should help spur a sense of community and personal growth in the area.
"We hope that individuals will come back and retool themselves," Falk said. "[That way they can] further their careers and give back to our community in Kansas City."
The Edwards Campus will have 27 total academic programs this fall.
