Tennessee Wesleyan University’s Fall 2023 enrollment saw gains over the previous Fall semester. According to university data after census day, the 14th day of classes. The largest gain was in graduate enrollment.

Tennessee Wesleyan recently received approval to launch two more graduate programs, a Master of Science in Sport Leadership and Master of Science in Project Management. These two programs will complement the programs already in the University’s portfolio, and bring the total graduate offerings to include:

· Master of Business Administration· Executive Master of Science in Project Management· Executive Master of Business Administration· Executive Master of Science in Business Analytics       Concentrations in Information Technology or Marketing· Master of Arts in Teaching· Master of Science in Education· Master of Science in Nursing· RN to Bachelor of Science in Nursing· Master of Science in Sports Leadership       Concentrations in Sports Leadership or Coaching· Master of Occupational Therapy

“The increase in enrollment was largely due to the almost 70% increase in graduate program enrollment,” said Dr. Tyler Forrest, Tennessee Wesleyan University President. “Diversifying our course offerings has been a priority for many years, and the increase of graduate programs is a key driver in future enrollment. “


The Master of Science in Sport Leadership will have two distinct tracks, one for coaching and one for athletic administration. The Master of Science in Project Management will be housed within the Goodfriend School of Business and support students wishing to advance their knowledge in project management or enter the profession mid-career.

Other programs seeing increases included the Bachelor of Dental Hygiene and online RN-BSN program within the TWU-Fort Sanders Nursing Department. Dual Enrollment classes were up 14% year-over-year.

“Many high school students want to get ahead in their college degree, and the dual enrollment option provides college credit coursework that also meets high school requirements,” said Sara Hopper, Executive Director of Admissions at TWU. “We have provided dual enrollment options for many years but want to make sure students know we are a viable option in that space and accept the Dual Enrollment Grant (DEG) through the state of Tennessee that will cover the cost of the first five dual enrollment courses.”
