COBLESKILL, N.Y. — Luna the springer spaniel is learning to sniff out a troublesome golf course fungus in return for a tennis ball while helping her handler fetch a new breed of bachelor’s degree. The four-year program in “canine training and management” officially launches this fall at the State University of New York at Cobleskill amid a surge in demand for specially trained dogs to detect security threats and assist veterans in the wake of 9/11.While several institutions hand out training certificates and at least one small private college, Bergin University of Canine Studies in Penngrove, California, awards a bachelor’s in dog handling, the program at Cobleskill is more ambitious in its scope. “I do believe this is the first of its kind of this caliber of degree” at a major university, said Nick Hof, chairman of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers. Professor Stephen Mackenzie, who has trained military and police dogs for 40 years … [Read more...] about New York college offers bachelor’s degree in dog training

Daniel Bice Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Published 2:30 p.m. UTC Aug 1, 2018 Acting Milwaukee County Sheriff Richard Schmidt likes to tout his education credentials in his bid to win a full term. Schmidt will tell crowds that he has bachelor's and master's degrees and recently was awarded a doctorate. And he has even begun work on yet another doctorate. "Dr. Richard Schmidt," proclaim his yard signs for the Aug. 14 Democratic primary. "Milwaukee County sheriff." But his is not your traditional academic record. Schmidt got his first two degrees from an unaccredited, Christian fundamentalist college, with a checkered recent history, in which men earn degrees in Bible and theology while programs "specifically for ladies" include "marriage and motherhood" and "missionary wife."
