Supply Chain Management, Environmental Science, and Communication Science and Disorders
Caldwell, N.J., Jan. 31, 2022 – Caldwell University has announced the addition of three new academic undergraduate programs in exciting, growing professional fields.
Bachelor’s degrees in Supply Chain Management, Environmental Science and Communication Science and Disorders will be offered to students starting in fall 2022.
The new Bachelor of Science in Supply Chain Management degree within the School of Business and Computer Science will prepare students to work as professionals in an exciting, growing and changing field that manages every step of a product or service going from the producer to the end user in an efficient manner.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports 30% growth in the field from 2020 to 2030 and names New Jersey as the top-paying state for the occupation. Supply chain management presents strong labor market opportunities, and according to the educational research firm EAB is one of the highest average quarterly number of job postings in 2021.
The B.S. in Environmental Science prepares students to pursue graduate school or a range of career opportunities in waste management, biological conservation, environmental chemistry, environmental biology, bioremediation, toxicology, environmental management, environmental technology, energy management, and sustainability.
Caldwell’s program aims to give students a strong foundation in the scientific aspects of environmental issues and the ability to communicate effectively about the environment to different audiences. Students will have opportunities to learn about the health, legal, societal, political, and business aspects of environmental issues.
Communication Science and Disorders is designed to prepare students for growing career opportunities and graduate school paths related to speech-language pathology. The major features a curriculum based on the standards of the American Speech, Language, and Hearing Association.
Most students who earn the Bachelor of Science degree in Communication Science and Disorders will be prepared to pursue a master’s degree to become qualified for employment as a speech language pathologist. The degree will also ready students for entry-level opportunities in education and public policy such as becoming an audiology assistant.
Time magazine ranked audiology as the No. 1 “best job in America.” Business Insider in 2020 ranked it as No. 12 for “highest-paying jobs working fewer than 40 hours a week,” and U.S. News & World Report in 2020 reported speech-language pathology to be No. 6 in “best healthcare jobs.”
“Our investment in [these new degree programs] builds on our strengths, responds to both student interest and future market conditions, and advances our mission as a comprehensive institution founded by the Sisters of St. Dominic,” said Dr. Peter Ubertaccio, Caldwell’s vice president for academic affairs.
