Share Article

Adult learners can finish their bachelor’s degree in as few as 16 months at George Fox University's Portland and Salem locations.

Adult learners interested in finishing their bachelor’s degree in a supportive cohort-based format have until Friday, July 29, to apply to George Fox University adult degree programs scheduled to begin classes this fall.

The university’s management and organizational leadership, social and behavioral studies, technology management, project management, health administration and elementary education programs begin fall cohorts in August. George Fox’s degree-completion programs are designed for adult students who wish to finish their bachelor’s degree in an accelerated format. Most students who enroll complete their degree in as few as 16 months.

The university’s Portland Center near Tigard, located at 12753 S.W. 68th Ave., #168, in Portland, offers all six programs. The school’s Salem Center, at 4600 25th Ave. N.E., in Salem, offers the social and behavioral studies and elementary education programs.

An information meeting on the programs is scheduled from 6 to 7 p.m. Monday, July 11, at the Portland Center location.

Classes are taught in a seminar style and are writing intensive. Class activities include simulations and discussions that draw from students’ personal and professional backgrounds to achieve a broader understanding of the material. Each course builds on the next so students can maximize the impact of the learning.

General education/elective courses are available for students who have fewer than the required credits needed to apply to the adult degree major. These courses are offered in a weeknight or weekend format and meet once a week for eight weeks, with two eight-week terms in each 16-week semester. Many of these classes will fill a student’s need for general education or elective credits.
