Boise, Idaho (Vocus/PRWEB) January 28, 2011
Adult learners interested in finishing their bachelor’s degree in a supportive cohort-based format are invited to learn more about George Fox University’s adult degree programs in Boise at an upcoming information meeting.
An adult degree program meeting at the university’s Boise Center in Meridian is scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 10, at the center’s location at 1810 S. Eagle Road. Also in February, an information session about one of those adult degree offerings, the elementary education degree program, is set for 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 9, at the same location. Subsequent elementary education meetings are scheduled at the same time and place on March 9, April 13 and May 11.
The university’s adult degree programs in Boise include bachelor’s degrees in social and behavioral studies, project management, management and organizational leadership and elementary education.
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 adult degree programs will begin new cohorts in the fall, with an admissions deadline of Aug. 1.
The center offers general education/elective credit courses starting every eight weeks for students who need them prior to entering a cohort. Students can contact Lindsey Wallgren, admissions counselor, at 208-639-8518 to determine if they will need any of these classes.
Applications for admission to the elementary education degree program are now being accepted. The 41-credit-hour major offers course work that offers initial certification with authorization to teach in Idaho public and private schools at the elementary education level.
Both the adult degree programs and elementary education program are designed to accommodate the schedules of working adults, with classes scheduled one night per week and, in the case of elementary education, one Saturday per month. Many classes are offered in a hybrid format, combining online and in-class formats.
