Like So Much Else At Hartwick, 1st Master’s Makes Sense

Like So Much At Hartwick,

First Master’s Makes Sense

While the term may bring art and poetry to mind, “liberal arts” encompasses literature, philosophy, mathematics, social sciences and, yes, physical sciences – chemistry, biology,  physics.
Hartwick President Margaret L. Drugovich knows this, and knows that her college’s science programs prepare students to compete at the highest level.

1st Hartwick Master Degree Created, An Innovative One

TBRM’ BLENDS LIBERAL ARTS, SCIENCE

1st Hartwick Master
Degree Created,
An Innovative One

Bringing a new pharmaceutical to market costs $1 billion and takes 15 years, said Dr. Alice C. Ceacareanu.
“And 15 more years to make the best use of it,” said the new director of Hartwick College’s first master’s degree program, in TBRM, Translational Biomedical Research Management.
Its goal is to prepare professionals to short that 30-year delay considerably, she said in an interview Tuesday, Jan. 22.
The college had announced the day before that the state Education Department had approved Hartwick’s first master’s degree program in its 222-year history.
Ceacareanu, an oncology pharmacist by training and president of ROAKETIN, Inc., a consulting firm, was already on Oyaron Hill, and the announcement said she would start work immediately.
Between now and September, when the 2019-20 academic year begins, she will be assembling the faculty, some from the college’s science departments, but also from around the nation and, possibly, the world.
