Graduate programs on the master’s, educational specialist, and doctoral levels provide advanced training in a broad range of disciplines.

Acknowledging its beginnings as a teacher’s college, the University sustains excellence in teacher education while continuing to expand offerings in traditional as well as unique programs of study. From the core disciplines such as arts, humanities, and sciences, to unique programs such as Commercial Aviation, the Delta Music Institute, and the nationally-recognized Geospatial Information Technology program, the University is committed to meeting the evolving needs of the students it serves.


Industrial training has a three-fold Mission: 

  • Customized Pre-employment training, which will assure a capable and well-trained workforce for new and expanding industries.

  • Post-employment training for new and existing industries.

  • Retraining or upgrading employees for existing industries.


Customized pre-employment training is provided to applications before they are hired. This training is to prepare trainees for immediate placement in new jobs.


Customized on-the-job training (COJT) programs are conducted after the employees have been hired. This training provides job specific training.


Customized retraining is developed for existing company employees to meet changing skill requirements caused by new technology. Upgrade training consists of courses designed to assist industry employees in advancing from one job level to another.

Secondary Education

Making education a priority has been a tradition in Bolivar County for more than a century. In fact, Bolivar County, Mississippi had one of the first consolidated school systems in the nation. Today there are six consolidated school districts in the County, with programs that are considered to be some of the strongest and most progressive among public school systems in the region. One such example is Hayes Cooper Center for Math, Science and Technology, a K-6 magnet school in Merigold that is a break-the-mold, state-of-the-art school with an accelerated academic program. In 1998-1999, it was one of only seven Mississippi schools recognized as a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. Two parochial schools and one private academy with excellent academic and athletic programs are also located in the County.
