If you are looing for an accelerated degree program, then lookno further. ORU is offering three year progams. Choose the one that best suits your needs.

Oral Roberts University will offer 33-degree programs in a three-year format starting this fall. The “Degree in Three” program is a way for students to get a head start on their future, save money and explore the option of enrolling in graduate studies in the fourth year.

“The University Chairs’ Council studied the ‘Degree in Three’ possibility for over a year, looking at data from our student body, as well as which programs would fit into the format,” said Wendy Shirk, dean of ORU’s College of Arts and Cultural Studies. “We saw this option as a way for extremely focused students to save money and be able to enter graduate school or the job market one year earlier than their peers.”

College offers accelerated degree program for adults

Acclerated_degree_program

The economy is fast changing the way colleges and teachers choose to teach students. See if this is something that would benifit you in your career.

Lauryl Schaffer hasn’t had much use for accounting, business law and ethics, or strategic marketing knowledge in her job as a nurse in the cardiology clinic at Froedtert Hospital.

But with aspirations of moving up the career ladder, learning to deal with the business side of health care operations becomes a necessity.

Schaffer, a Wauwatosa resident, turned to Wisconsin Lutheran College and its accelerated degree program for adult learners to help her earn a business degree in about 20 months. She plans to be among the inaugural program graduates come December.

“I’d like to be in management some day,” she said. “Everyone’s busy, and you have to be dedicated to go back to school. This program was one night a week of concentrated learning.”

See how students take a break form a rigorous class schedule. They also view lectures posted by the college.

In 1995, University of California—Berkeley computer science professor Lawrence Rowe began recording lectures and posting them as webcasts on the school’s intranet for his students to view at their leisure outside of the classroom. As technology rapidly evolved, other professors on campus began to follow suit; 16 years later, students and curious minds worldwide have viewed the more than 1,000 lectures posted by the school nearly 5 million times via Berkeley’s channel on YouTube EDU.

“We have the benefit of being a public institution with a mission of community service and outreach,” says Benjamin Hubbard, who manages the school’s webcasts. “Making the content publicly available perfectly aligns with that mission.”

Find out what one student did to enhance her degree program and did it at an accelerated pace.

Jamie Noonan, a political science and philosophy major and rising junior at Villanova University, wanted the flexibility to be able to excel in any workplace, but felt that with dual majors rooted in the liberal arts, she lacked the requisite skills to do so. To remedy that, she turned to the school’s Summer Business Institute, which immerses students in the intricacies of accounting, management, and marketing, among other topics, during six hour days over the course of 10 weeks.

Noonan’s parents footed the $9,000 bill for the program, but she is confident their investment will yield a significant return. “Any job that you do, you’re going to be working for a company that is trying to maximize profits,” she says. “Just knowing how that system works, you can be a much better employee.”
