New Online Bachelor’s Degree Programs – December 2019
Several large public universities have recently announced the launch of new online bachelor’s degree programs. Among the schools that have launched new programs are Maryland’s Morgan State University, the University of Wyoming, the University of Missouri-St. Louis, the University of Central Oklahoma, and the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. The new programs include online bachelor’s in accounting, business administration, cloud computing, organizational leadership, and public administration. Most of these programs have already begun accepting applicants for start dates in 2020.
Morgan State University – Online Bachelor of Science (BS) in Cloud Computing Program
Morgan State University, an historically black public research university in Baltimore, MD, recently received unanimous approval from its Board of Regents to add a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Cloud Computing program to the online and campus-based undergraduate degrees already offered by the university’s School of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences. The Cloud Computing program, which Morgan State will begin offering in the fall of 2020, aims to prepare students for careers in cloud computing, information technology, and other private and public sector fields which make use of cloud computing services. Students in the program will receive training and instruction in technical and administrative aspects of computer architecture, computer systems engineering, application development, cloud security, and cloud-based research.
University of Wyoming – Online Bachelor of Science (BS) in Accounting Program
The College of Business at the University of Wyoming in Laramie has introduced a new online Bachelor of Science (BS) in Accounting program that is designed to accommodate students whose schedules prevent them from attending the school’s campus-based program. The online BS in Accounting program functions as a bachelor’s completion program, giving students who have one to two years of previous college coursework the opportunity to transfer into the program with prior credits and earn a bachelor’s degree in accounting at their own pace. Students in the program receive academic training and preparation for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam. However, licensure requirements for CPAs vary by state, so applicants from outside of Wyoming should review their state’s CPA eligibility requirements to determine if the University of Wyoming’s BS in Accounting curriculum meets those requirements.
University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL) – Online Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Organizational Leadership Program
The University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL) has begun admitting students to a new online Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Organizational Leadership program that commences in January of 2020. The program functions as a bachelor’s completion program. It is designed for adult learners who have an associate degree or some college credits and who want to expand their knowledge base and career options by earning a bachelor’s degree while remaining in the workforce. The program is being offered 100% online, although students have the option of attending classes on campus if they prefer. Offered through UMSL’s Department of Sociology, the BA in Organizational Leadership program requires students to take nine core social science and management courses, fulfill a foreign language requirement, and complete three courses in one of the program’s seven concentrations. Concentration options include: Business Management; Community Management; Corporate Communication; Criminal Justice; Health Communication; Information Systems; and Supply Chain Management.
The University of Central Oklahoma – Online Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in General Business Program, and online Bachelor of Science (BS) in Organizational Leadership and General Studies Programs
The University of Central Oklahoma (UCO) has added three new undergraduate degree options to its growing slate of online bachelor’s completion programs: Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in General Business; Bachelor of Science (BS) in Organizational Leadership; and a BS in General Studies. All three of these programs, which have begun accepting applicants for the spring of 2020 semester, are offered through UCO Connected Campus. The online BBA in General Business program has a flexible curriculum that allows students to take intermediate and upper-division courses in the following areas: Accounting; Business Communication; Economics; Entrepreneurship; Finance; Information Systems and Operations Management; International Business; Legal Studies; and Marketing. The Organizational Leadership program features courses in organizational behavior, management, ethics, communication, and finance, and it gives students two options for specialization: Supervision; and Global Citizenship. The General Studies program allows students to earn an interdisciplinary bachelor’s degree by taking a mix of courses in business, design, education, fine arts, liberal arts, mathematics, and science.
The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay (UW Green Bay) – Online Bachelor of Science (BS) in Public Administration Program
The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay (UW Green Bay) is now offering its Bachelor of Science (BS) in Public Administration program, as well as its Nonprofit Management and Emergency Management certificates, in an online format. Students interested in pursuing UW Green Bay’s BS in Public Administration degree can do so through online coursework, campus-based classes, or a mix of the two. While all of the program’s coursework is offered online, students in the program must complete an in-person public administration internship at an agency or organization approved by an academic advisor. Students in the program have the option of earning a certificate in Nonprofit or Emergency Management online while completing their bachelor’s degree. The Emergency Management and Nonprofit Management certificates are also available online to students who already hold a bachelor’s degree.
