University of Cincinnati Anticipates Upswing in Enrollment for Online Classes
Good news for the University of Cincinnati! In another banner year, the university is projecting a marked increase in its online course enrollment numbers, compared to fall of last year.
According to Campus Technology, the University of Cincinnati (UC) is currently projecting a 6.8% increase in enrollment. Impressive enough on its own, but the school is no stranger to prodigious growth: the article states that that UC "has experienced a compound annual growth rate of about 19.87 percent over the last five years." From 2004 up to now, fall enrollments have grown from 1,213 students to over 3,000.
In particular, one area of the university -- the College of Education, Criminal Justice, and Human Services (CECH) -- is receiving an especially large amount of attention. The university reports more than 1,700 students currently pursuing online criminal justice degrees and online teaching degrees through the college. In response, UC is expanding the college to offer a new master's level curriculum instruction degree and an associate's program specifically for teachers who want to work within the Head Start program.
In addition, UC is expanding the amount of programs offered at its nursing school to offer a total of five graduate specialization tracks. Altogether, this brings the total of online degree programs that UC offers to 23, up drastically from the nine it offered back in 2004. This is no fluke: UC is committed to building up the opportunities that online education can afford its students. In a statement last week, UC vice president and provost Anthony J. Perzigian said, "Distance learning at UC is a fundamental part of UC's 21st century approach to increasing access to high-quality educational programs, meeting the needs of students and integrating 21st century technology into higher education... Our new distance-learning additions this fall build on UC's commitment to providing flexibility for student learning." With all of these programs, University of Cincinnati is on its way to big things in online education.
