Southern New Hampshire University School of Business professors Martin Bradley, Robert Seidman and Steven Painchaud have their new book Saving Higher Education: The Integrated, Competency-Based Three-Year Bachelor’s Degree Program issued in October by Jossey-Bass/Wiley.
Saving Higher Education is a response to the pressure from families and the government to make higher education more affordable and efficient. Based on SNHU’s ’s highly successful integrated, competency-based three-year bachelor’s degree program the book discusses the current movement nationally towards offering three-year programs and offers a blueprint that can assist educational leaders in creating, growing and sustaining a program at their institutions.
“The ability to control escalating tuition costs, while at the same time delivering a high quality educational experience, is the key to the continued success of post-secondary education in the U.S.,” Prof. Marty Bradley said. “Students and their families are being asked to make enormous financial investments as they prepare for life and work in the 21st century.”
SNHU’s 3Year program is the longest running integrated, competency-based three-year program in the country and saves students 25 percent of the cost of a typical four-year degree.
It is 120 credits earned over six consecutive semesters and focuses on core competencies and not “seat time.” Visit http://www.snhu.edu/2220.asp to learn more about this unique program,
