York College recently announced the addition of psychology and criminal justice degrees to their online program offerings.
These additions will allow York College to better serve students in growing fields for online learning.
A bachelor's degree in psychology gives students the ability to pursue a wide variety of career choices, says Dr. Jaclyn Spivey, chair of the Department of Behavioral Sciences at YC. "Combining the Christian worldview with the content of a psychology degree is something I feel strongly about, and I am excited about the opportunity to share this with our students, both online and traditional."
Associate Professor of Criminal Justice and Division Chair of Professional Programs Dr. Billy Lones is excited about the addition of the degrees, as well. "This will allow us to help more students, especially those working full-time, with their educational needs and goals. Additionally, the faculty for these courses possess a wealth of practical professional experience in addition to their academic expertise."
Also available online from York College are a bachelor’s degree in business administration and a master of education degree in curriculum and instruction.
Associate Dean for Online Instruction Lisa Menke says that attending classes online at York College is a great option for students who need more flexibility in their schedules than traditional classrooms offer. “Most of our full-time online students are working adults, some with small children at home,” says Menke. “Having the flexibility to attend class between shifts at work or while kids are asleep makes all the difference in our students achieving their academic goals.”
“What sets York College apart from other colleges that offer online degrees is our dedication to our students,” says Menke. “We believe providing outstanding customer service to our students is paramount. We make it a priority to give personal attention to each student. Students who attend York College via our online programs develop relationships with faculty and administrators because they know we are genuinely invested in their success. You won’t find that at many other colleges with online programs.”
Menke also stressed that the mission of York College “to transform lives through Christ-centered education and equip students for lives of service to God, family and society” is vital to every class and program being offered. “We are intentional about our classes being taught from a Christian world view, no matter what the class topic.”
