The U.S. Department of Education awarded the Graduate School of Education at the University of St. Thomas a $2.8 million Title V Grant in 2009 to fund the Promoting Postbaccalaureate Opportunities for Hispanic Americans Program (PPOHA). The purpose of the grant is to implement programs to increase enrollment, retention and graduation rates among Hispanic and low-income graduate students.
The grant will offer two options for students seeking a master’s degree in education (MEd): 1) a complete online MEd or 2) a hybrid master’s degree that combines online classes with traditional face-to-face classes.
The University established a Graduate Student Success Center that is specifically designed to provide assistance with graduate-level writing, research, and issues of academic/work/life balance.
