Accounting

A rapidly changing world necessitates frequent changes in occupations and careers. The future appears promising and stable for those qualified in accounting, management, finance, and office operations. This is true in business, professional, social, educational, religious, health-related fields and personal business venture areas.

It is important for the student majoring in accounting to acquire the necessary technical knowlwedge and business skills related to a particular field of interest. It also is very important to obtain an education involving the successful completion of courses in the various liberal arts areas of the university curriculum.

Accounting majors are placed in both public and private accounting as well as in governmental accounting positions. Some accounting majors will desire and qualify to sit for the C.P.A. examination and will become certified public accountants upon successful completion of the rigorous requirements set by the Board of Accountancy of the State of Kansas.

Art

Using a studio approach to course study in the visual arts, art majors gain the requisite conceptual and technical skills that encompass the basis of the visual language. With the academic home for the visual arts located within the Liberal Arts curriculum, art majors at Newman take advantage of the entire Liberal Arts faculty in their study of art. Through this broad grounding, the student is trained to give artistic expression to the complexity of human experience and to utilize their unique perspective to comment upon and contribute to betterment of their communities.

Training in technique, exposure to historical perspectives, principles of design, and grounding in diverse media enables Newman visual arts students to develop the heightened sense of aesthetic awareness needed in today's art and design professions.

Emphasis is placed on nurturing the individual voice as it finds its way within the techniques of the specific artistic discipline.

Biology

The Department of Biology aims to provide information of the fundamental biological concepts and techniques to enable students to understand, interpret, and appreciate the world of life.

Programs in biology are offered to provide adequate preparation for programs in medicine, dentistry, and allied health fields. Both Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science Degrees are offered with a major in biology to provide greater flexibility in choice of electives and to enable the students to acquire a sound background for careers in the biological disciplines or specialty they propose to follow in graduate school. The Sports Medicine minor at Newman University is intended for students who are interested in academic disciplines including physical education, pre-physical therapy, coaching, pre-chiropractic, nutrition, nursing, pre-medicine, pre-occupational therapy, pre-athletic training and entry-level graduate education.

This program will provide interested students with the academic background and the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills in sports medicine. Students will get hands-on experience through internship and out-of-the-classroom opportunities such as serving as an assistant trainer for our athletic teams or working at physical therapy rehabilitation centers. This minor is designed to meet the growing interest in a program of study that integrates exercise and health sciences with the practical aspects of human performances. By completing this program students have an opportunity to acquire important knowledge as they learn about anatomy, human movement, nutrition, and sports injuries. In essence, this program is designed to provide a foundation for those students wishing to complete an advanced degree or for those students who may be interested in applying to a professional school.

Before enrolling in a course which has a prerequisite course listed, the student must have earned a grade of "C'' or better in the prerequisite course. For classes having a corresponding laboratory, both the lecture and the laboratory courses must be taken concurrently unless one of the courses has already been successfully completed with a grade of "C" or better.
