The president of the University of Northern Iowa says his school hopes to offer three new courses to respond to student demand. U-N-I president Robert Koobsays U-N-I plans to offer an undergraduate degree in computer network administration. Koob says one of the most popular two-year technical programs at the state’s community colleges is in computer network administration, and U-N-I is “reaching out” to those students, offering a four-year degree to a very large number of community college grads. U-N-I also plans to offer a “bio-infomatics” undergrad degree and a new masters degree. It’s called a “professional science masters.” Koob says it will take someone with an undergraduate degree and teach them two languages — the language of technology and the language of business. “So that we create for Iowa a higher-level workforce,” Koob says. The new courses won’t be offered, though, if the legislature doesn’t provide more money to U-N-I.
