A new school year is around the corner for Troy University, and students will have more careers to choose from. The Board of Trustees added more undergraduate and graduate degrees to its Dothan campus.
Some degrees include allied health and biomedical science. Also, they plan to expand its cultural arts programs.
“We’ll be working hard to take our performing arts to come to the Dothan area to serve our Wiregrass to a greater degree than we have in the past, “explained Dr. Don Jeffrey, Vice Chancellor of Troy-Dothan.
Troy-Dothan’s five year plan also included a degree in entrepreneurship, which school leaders said, drives America.
“We know it’s the small businesses of America that drives America. And so with this being a bachelorette degree in entrepreneurship, you graduate with Troy University, you should be ready to go out and get started,” said Jeffrey.
The campus itself will also see an upgrade. Not only will they construct a new College of Business building, but they renamed the Library & Technology building after former congressman Terry Everett. He is a former member of the United States House of Representatives from Alabama’s 2nd congressional district.
Everett said it was more than just an honor—it was personal.
“I have great belief in the fact that the young people who understand technology, they'll have a much better chance in life,” he said.
Technology remained a hit in the plan. Trustees revealed they will support more early education on science, technology, engineering, and math—the STEM initiatives.
