By expanding our online portfolio, we’re giving both traditional students and working adults newfound flexibility in how and when they choose to learn.
GREENSBORO, NC (PRWEB) April 30, 2012
Today the UNCG Division of Continual Learning announced it will add three new online programs to its curriculum this fall, including a new online Master’s degree and two new online certificate programs.
“By expanding our online portfolio, we’re giving both traditional students and working adults newfound flexibility in how and when they choose to learn,” says Robert Brown, Dean of the UNCG Division of Continual Learning. “Last year the University delivered more than 40,000 credit hours of instruction online – offering opportunities to many students who would have been unable to travel to campus for a face-to-face class.”
The three new online offerings available this fall include:
- Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in African American Studies. This 15 credit-hour, interdisciplinary program is open to current graduate students and community members who have earned at least a bachelor’s degree in any field. Though application is made through the UNCG Graduate School, the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is not required. Students who complete a certificate in African American studies often do so as a prerequisite to a career in education or law.
- Post-Master’s Certificate in Urban School Leadership and Administration. This 27 credit-hour program pairs online coursework with a year-long internship in an urban educational setting. As a result, students come away with both the knowledge and practical experience needed to be an effective school leader. The program is intended for students who already hold a Master’s in education or in another field closely affiliated with youth or adult development. At least three years of experience in education is a prerequisite.
- Master of Education Degree in Latin. This 38 credit-hour program is designed for teachers who want to earn an advanced degree in Latin, while also becoming licensed. The program offers two tracks—a Teacher Leadership track that leads to an advanced license, and a Classroom Practice track that satisfies both initial and advanced licensing requirements. A Bachelor’s degree in any field is a prerequisite, along with at least 12 hours of Latin beyond the first year.
