Since Jeremy Brown became Dowling College president, he has made several changes to the school's academic offerings in both its undergraduate and graduate programs.

For the 2012-2013 academic year, the school has added new bachelor's degree programs in criminal justice management, sociology and teaching English to speakers of other languages.

In addition, it has launched a new doctoral degree in educational administration with a concentration in health care and online master's degree programs in sports management and educational technology leadership.

The college also recently began a marketing campaign and appointed Suzanne Johnson, a Dowling faculty member for more than two decades, to the newly created position of dean of the college.

The dean will oversee the college's four schools: arts and sciences, aviation, business, and education.


Brown took over the college's top post in June 2011.
