For years, the traditional school-as-factory model of learning has been the core of most teacher education programs. But La Salle’s Graduate Program in Education offers a unique alternative that views each child as an individual learner with needs that often can’t be met through an industrialized approach to education.
Our Historical Society, chartered in 1936, is one of the oldest and most active student organizations on campus. In addition to running trips, films, and other activities with historical themes, it publishes an award-winning student academic journal, The Histories, twice a year. The Society also sponsors an annual fall symposium featuring top scholars such as James McPherson on topics ranging from American foreign policy during the Civil War to the question of German responsibility for the outbreak of World War I. The Society also sponsors a lecture each semester in which a History faculty member discusses his/her research.
Accounting is often considered the “language of business,” because it is the core of any business organization. Accountants are responsible for communicating and interpreting financial information as a basis for strategic decision-making. La Salle’s Accounting program is designed to help students succeed within this vital discipline. Because almost all organizations need accounting information, there are many job possibilities for accounting graduates. Certified Public Accountants (CPAs), internal auditors, bankers, financial planners, merger and acquisition consultants, and tax planners are just some of the possible career paths.
