York College Online Now Offers Master's Degree
It’s easier than ever to have the York Experience, as you can now earn a bachelor’s or master’s degree at York College from home. The Higher Learning Commission has recently approved accreditation for York College Online to offer a wide variety of degrees, including a Master’s degree in curriculum and instruction.
Previously, York College Online’s accreditation was limited to bachelor’s degree completion for former York College students. This change is significant, as it will allow more students to have access to the quality Christian education York College Online provides.
In addition to the range of degrees currently available, in the spring of 2013 the college will begin offering a bachelor's of business with an emphasis in health care information management. In summer 2013, a bachelor's of science in criminal justice will be added.
According to Director of Online Learning Lisa Menke, York College Online is a great option for those that want the York Experience with the flexibility of the digital format. Classes are taught by Christian faculty members and lessons include spiritual content, no matter what the subject.
With more campus activities, such as athletic games and choir concerts, being offered streaming on the York College website, online students can still feel a part of the campus life, no matter where they are.
Menke says she is especially excited about the start-up of the Master’s degree, as it will have an emphasis in best practices with a global perspective. Created for traditional as well as corporate educators, the program will be unique in that it will have particular focus on social justice and diversity issues.
