Schools Reaching Out Online for Continuing Education
As the traditional colleges and public universities become more comfortable with distance learning, we're starting to see some innovative programs being developed. We are also seeing established schools going after the continuing education market, something that not so long ago was a sidelight carried through college extension programs.
At Texas state school Lamar University, there is a new program that has been created expressly for former students who dropped out of college prior to achieving a degree. The program is being offered only as an online degree, and only to individuals who have been out of school for five or more years. Applicants must also have accumulated 60 credits of college course work at a GPA of 2.0 or higher, and have completed the General Education requirements set by the Texas State University system.
If you meet all those requirements, you can enroll in an online program for a bachelor's degree in applied arts and sciences. That's very similar to a degree you might find at one of the liberal arts schools that covers the classics in education: English, history, math, perhaps a foreign language and a minimum science requirement.
Lamar U is making it as easy as possible for potential returnees: credit will be considered for certain professional experience, start dates are flexible and payment plans are available. Academic support is offered through the campus, and the courses are available at a bargain rate of $450 each for Texans.
Several hundred miles north at Penn State, you can enroll in an online master's program for a project management degree. The program is being presented as a partnership with Rolls Royce and the University of Manchester. The degree is being offered to professionals who are working full time; in addition, it is designed to allow students to incorporate their business activities into academic projects.
Rolls Royce is seeking project management training for its employees in the U.S. They participated in a successful training project for employees conducted by the University of Manchester in England; now they are bringing the program to the United States and Penn State is offering it to all qualified professionals.
