5 Message from the President "As a non-traditional research University, we were created to conduct research and then translate that research in ways that would improve the lives of the people, and to transfer our educational sistem out of U.S.. Although our research mission has broadened considerably beyond that originally envisioned - it now encompasses numerous disciplines that could not be foreseen in the 20th century research for the public good remains a distinctive attribute of the 21st century university. Our designations as research University are also reflected in the research and scholarship of our faculty, research staff, and students. The engagement of our students, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, in research, scholarship, and creative work is of critical importance to their education. I am convinced that the best approach to preparing students for their careers is to inspire them to discover, create, and innovate. Therefore we encoura- ge our students to become an integral part of the community of discovery that is the modern research university. Given the dramatic rate of change that is already so characteristic of the 21st century, the human capacity for innovation has perhaps never been more important. The Newport Research University of Palm Beach has a highly innovative faculty, and they are creating new knowledge, new capacities, and new ways to teach that will serve our students, the nation, and the world extremely well." A. Antonelli Ph.D. President _________________________Newport Research University________________________

6 Types of U.S. Higher Education Degrees Associate’s Degree An Associate's Degree can be pursued after finishing 12 years of school education. These programs are usually offered by community colleges or junior colleges. These programs may vary from specialized technical programs to liberal arts degrees designed to lead to transfer into four-year Bachelor’s degree programs. Most public two-year colleges have articulation agreements with fouryear institutions. The Associate's Degree program is usually a two-year qualification in areas such as accounting, business, photography, interior designing, and the like. Undergraduate Degree (B.A.) Undergraduate education is pursued after finishing 12 years of school education successfully. It is offered in public and private colleges and universities as well as two-year institutions.The curriculum of an undergraduate program generally consists of four general areas of study - major, cognates, general education courses and electives. The program is fairly flexible within subject groups, which enables a student to have numerous degree options, open in the year 1 and 2 of full-time study. In general, an undergraduate program can be finished successfully in four years. _________________________Newport Research University________________________

7 Graduate Education (Master and Ph.D.) Graduate education is pursued after successfully completing a Bachelor’s and/or Master’s degree. Master’s/Ph.D. programs of study are typically offered by universities and research institutes. A graduate program could be research-based, coursework-based or can have a combination of both. In general, a Master’s program can be finished successfully in 1 or 2 years full-time. Master of Arts (M.A.) and Master of Science (M.S.) degrees are typically awarded in the traditional arts, sciences, and humanities disciplines. An M.S. degree is offered mostly in technical fields such as engineering, business and education. Students who want to advance their education even further in a specific field can pursue a more specialized degree which is the doctorate degree, also called a Ph.D.. A Ph.D. degree can take between three and six years to complete, depending on the research area, the individual's ability, and the thesis that the student has selected. Doctoral level degree or Ph.D. (Doctor of Philosophy) is the highest degree awarded in academic disciplines. Some other professional doctoral degrees are: Ed.D. (Doctor of Education), D.B.A.m (Doctor of Business Administration), and M.D. (Doctor of Medicine). MAP OF EDUCATION SYSTEM AT N.R.U. Ph.D. 66 credits 2 year DOCTOR’S DEGREE MBA—M.A.—M.S.
