The First Cohort of 27 Graduates Arrive at WKU Campus

On September 5, Wenzhou-Kean University launched the inaugural cohort of 27 students of the Master’s and Doctoral programs. This significant moment underscored the rapid progress of the University and represented a milestone in its development.

This is the first year that the University saw a cohort of graduate students, aging from 22 to 44 years old, enrolled in the three programs. The cohort includes 11 doctorate students in Educational leadership (Ed.D.), 12 students in Instruction and Curriculum (M.A.) and 4 in Biotechnology science (M.S.). WKU provides substantial scholarships to 80 percent of the incoming graduate students.

On the spot, graduates were warmly greeted by staff and welcomed with exclusive packages containing canvas bags with WKU logo, T-shirts, notebooks, etc.

Ms. Ye Junjun, one of the new students of Ed.D. program in Educational Leadership, serves as the Associate Dean of the School of Design, Zhejiang Vocational and Technical College of Industry and Trade. Although she has already established herself as an associate professor and senior administrator herself, she cherished the opportunity to further study in WKU. “Learning is a lifelong pursuit,” she stressed, “The doctorate program of Educational Leadership of Kean University takes lead in the United States. The chance to acquire such great international educational experience in WKU benefits educators like me in many ways.”

WKU graduate program uses English as the medium of instruction, and adopts the curriculum and training programs of the counterpart program of Kean University in the US. Graduates will be awarded Master’s and Doctorate degrees from Kean University in the US, which can be accredited by the Ministry of Education of China.
