NEW DOCTORATE programs in health research and music will be offered by the UST Graduate School beginning next academic year.

Graduate School Dean Marilu Madrunio said the doctorate degree in health research was aimed at developing “highly advanced systematic knowledge and skills in research.”

The doctorate degree for health research is a transnational education (TNE) program, which will offered in collaboration with the International Centre for Allied Health Evidence of the University of South Australia.

Madrunio said the program would utilize “blended learning,” a mixture of online and face-to-face classes.

Applicants should have completed Level 7 of the Asean Qualifications Reference Framework and Philippine Qualifications Framework through a post-baccalaureate master’s degree program, to be admitted to the doctorate program.

The doctorate program in Music is anchored on the master’s program in Music and will concentrate on performance.

“As for the program for Music, the University is recognized as a Center of Excellence in [that field] so it is logical that we offer a doctorate program in the field anchored on the master’s program of music. Without a doubt, the music program in the University is one of the best, if not the best, in the country,” Madrunio told the Varsitarian in an email.

The Graduate School added two programs this academic year, namely: a master’s program in electronics engineering and a doctorate program in built environment or architecture.
It offers 63 academic degree programs this academic year.

Madrunio also said the Graduate School would open a doctorate program in communication by 2020. M. A. de Jemel
