Several universities have recently announced plans to launch new online bachelor’s degree programs in the next year, including Utah State University, Stephen F.

The Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services at Utah State University (USU) began accepting applications in January for a new online Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program that will enroll its first class of 40 students this fall. The program is an RN-to-BSN bachelor’s completion program designed for Registered Nurses (RNs) who have an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN). Students in the program should be able to graduate in two or three semesters, depending on the number of bachelor’s-level courses they must complete in order to meet the program’s graduation requirements. The program is being offered 100% online and does not require students to attend any campus visits.

Stephen F. Austin State University (SFA) – Bachelor of Arts (BA) in International and Intercultural Communication Program

The College of Liberal and Applied Arts at Texas’ Stephen F. Austin State University (SFA) began offering its first bilingual undergraduate degree program on campus in the fall of 2019 and is planning to offer the same program online. SFA’s Bachelor of Arts (BA) in International and Intercultural Communication program features a curriculum in which half of the courses are taught in English and the other half in Spanish, French, German, or Portuguese. The program is designed to provide training and instruction in bilingual communication skills that can be applied across a broad range of fields, including business, diplomacy, education, hospitality, and public policy. Students in the program take applied language classes through SFA’s Modern Languages department, as well as coursework offered through SFA’s Communication Studies department. Among the Communication Studies courses currently offered by the program are: Health Communication; Media, Culture, and Identity; and Issues Management and Crisis Response. The program will be offered in an online format in the fall of 2020.

Kutztown University of Pennsylvania – Online Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Sociology Program

Kutztown University of Pennsylvania, a publicly funded school in Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education, has announced the launch of its first fully online bachelor’s degree program. Starting in the fall of 2020, Kutztown will be enrolling students in an online Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Sociology program. The online Sociology program is modeled on the school’s campus-based BA in Sociology program. However, it will feature seven-week terms instead of the 15-week semesters, and it will allow students who are able to take courses year round to do so, which means they may be able to complete their degree in three rather than four years of full-time enrollment.

Seton Hill University – Online Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Program

Pennsylvania’s Seton Hill University, a non-profit, private school located in Greensburg, has announced the launch of a new online Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program through its Daniel J.

Students in the Seton Hill program can enroll part-time in order to continue working as an RN while earning their degree, and can transfer into the program with up to 90 previously earned college credits. The program has a flexible structure that allows students to enroll full-time or part-time, take courses online or on campus, and complete their degree in one to three years.

Norwich University – Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) Program

Norwich University, also known as the Military College of Vermont, has added a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) program to its growing slate of online degree programs. The new BSBA program will be offered online through Norwich’s College of Graduate and Continuing Studies (CGCS) starting in May of 2020.
