Emporia State University – Online Bachelor of Science (BS) in Sport Leadership & Recreation

Emporia State University in Kansas and the university’s Teachers College recently announced the introduction of a new online Bachelor of Science (BS) in Sport Leadership & Recreation program. The online program is modeled after an existing campus-based BS in Sport Leadership & Recreation program offered by Emporia State. The new program does not require students to attend campus-based classes but does incorporate in-person internships and practicums. Students in the program must complete 120 credits of undergraduate coursework, including 54 credits in the Sport Leadership & Recreation major. The curriculum is designed for students who are interested in pursuing careers in sport marketing, NCAA compliance, event coordination, fundraising, and college/university athletics, coaching, and scouting.

Ferrum College – Online Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN-to-BSN) Program

The Division of Nursing at Virginia’s Ferrum College has added an online Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program to its nursing degree offerings. The program is an RN-to-BSN program, which means it is designed for licensed Registered Nurses (RNs) who have already completed their initial training in an associate degree in nursing (ADN) program. Students in the RN-to-BSN program must complete 28 credits of nursing coursework as well as general education courses for a total of 121 undergraduate credits. This can be done in as few as 18 months, depending on how many courses a student opts to take per semester. The program is 100% online and does not require any campus visits.

Louisiana State University (LSU) – Online Bachelor of Science (BS) in Learning Experience, Design, and Innovation (LXDI) Program

Louisiana State University (LSU) is adding a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Learning Experience, Design, and Innovation (LXDI) program to its growing slate of online bachelor’s degree programs. The LXDI program is designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills required to develop online learning and training programs for businesses, government agencies, non-profit organizations, and colleges and universities. It is structured to accommodate first-time college students who have a high school diploma and students who have already completed up to 60 credits of prior college credits from an accredited school. The total number of credits required to graduate from LSU’s LXDI bachelor’s program is 120. The program can be completed without having to attend any campus visits.

The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) – Online Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Program

The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) has partnered with Alabama’s Calhoun Community College to offer a dual nursing degree program in which students earn an associate degree in nursing (ADN) through traditional, campus-based classes at Calhoun and complete BSN coursework administered by the UAH College of Nursing via online instruction. Students can thus train to become RNs and earn a bachelor’s degree in nine semesters of full-time enrollment, with five semesters devoted to nursing training and four semesters devoted to general education requirements. The program, which will enroll its first cohort in the spring of 2021, is designed to shorten the time it typically takes to complete ADN training, apply to a BSN program, and complete BSN degree requirements.

The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) – Online Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Communication Program

The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) is adding an online Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Communication to its slate of online undergraduate degree programs. The school has begun enrolling students in the BA in Communication program for the spring of 2021 semester. The communication major, which can be completed entirely online, consists of three foundations courses, four core courses, and an additional seven electives. Students must also complete UTSA’s general education curriculum in order to graduate. UTSA now offers all of its general education coursework online, which means students can earn a BA in Communication from UTSA without having to attend any campus visits.
