Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) November 29, 2007
Drexel University Online, a pioneer in distance education, has increased its degree offerings with the launch of the Bachelor of Science in Professional Studies. This unique degree delivers coursework from three Drexel University colleges: College of Arts and Sciences, LeBow College of Business, and the Goodwin College of Professional Studies.
The B.S. in Professional Studies online program will enable students to acquire expertise in significant areas of contemporary professional life, and is equally relevant in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors. Coursework for the major is constructed around five areas of study - social science (understanding people in a diverse world), critical thinking, creativity, communication, and business. The curriculum is designed to enable students to become professionals in their field of choice, building on their prior education and experience.
The goal of the B.S. in Professional Studies is to expose students to varying aspects of professional life. There is also an emphasis on creativity not often found in other degrees. Students will become acquainted with creativity, theory and practice, learning to apply creative principles to enhance themselves individually, and as an organization. The online degree program is flexible and convenient for adult students seeking to enhance their professional qualifications.
"We're very proud to offer our students the outstanding Drexel curriculum within this convenient online format. All of our online programs - including the Bachelor of Science in Professional Studies - are taught by the same renowned faculty as our campus courses," said Dr. Kenneth Hartman, Academic Director of Drexel University Online.
Applications for Drexel's online Bachelor of Science in Professional Studies are now being accepted for the winter term. For more information about this online program, visit Drexel's online degree website, e-mail info @ drexel.com or call (877) 215-0009.
