New Construction Management Program Announced
Marywood University will launch its bachelor of science degree in construction management for the fall 2022 semester. As part of the University’s renowned School of Architecture, this is the first and only four-year construction management program in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
Marywood University’s School of Architecture’s integrative curriculum emphasizes a design/build approach, sustainable construction, and novel problem-solving skills, preparing its graduates to take on the most complex situations in the profession.
A bachelor’s degree in construction management prepares graduates to manage complex projects in the construction industry. Construction managers plan, budget, coordinate, and supervise construction projects throughout every step of the process. Construction managers work with all members of the team, from designers to contractors, to fulfill client needs and positively contribute to the built environment.
Students in the construction management program, within the School of Architecture, at Marywood University will enjoy close partnerships with other disciplines in the built environment. The University’s integrative curriculum connects business practices, construction knowledge, emergent building technologies, and design practices. With a construction management degree from Marywood University, graduates will be able to apply their education to a range of industry applications in a projected field for growth.
The new construction management program at Marywood University is a participant in the American Council for Construction Education (ACCE) Mentor Program. As part of ACCE’s five-year process for new programs on the path to full accreditation, Marywood University is a prospect school, currently in a mentoring partnership with The Ohio State University.
