USI at a Glance
Development of Academic Programs
A major emphasis of the University of Southern Indiana continues to be delivery of credit programs. For the near term, the primary curricular offerings will include liberal arts, pre-professional, professional, technical, and occupational programs at both associate and baccalaureate levels. Moreover, since a need for graduate-level programs exists for people who are employed in the Evansville metropolitan region, master's degree programs are being implemented as demand is demonstrated. Because Evansville serves as the center of a predominantly rural region dotted with smaller population centers, increased educational access for adults requires innovative instructional delivery systems, including internet-based instruction and classes that meet in off-campus locations.
There are 70 undergraduate academic majors, 10 master's programs, and one doctoral program. The newest degree programs include the doctorate in nursing practice and baccalaureate majors in advanced manufacturing and criminal justice. The University has made installation of advanced technology a priority for instruction and provides training for faculty to adapt technological advances to coursework.
