Oregon-based school offers new degree completion programs for adult learnersGeorge Fox University recently announced that it will offer an online degree completion program beginning in the fall 2011 term at its Portland and Salem campuses.

Officials said that the adult degree completion program will be delivered in a cohort format. Students may pursue the traditional classroom setting, which meets one night per week, or the hybrid, which blends online learning with face-to-face interaction.

The school will offer management and organizational leadership programs as well as degree completion curricula in social and behavioral sciences, technology management, project management, health administration and elementary education.

These programs are designed for adult students who wish to finish their bachelors degree in an accelerated format. Most enrollees can complete the curricula in 16 months. Courses are delivered in a seminar style and are writing-intensive. Learners will participate in activities such as simulations and discussions that can draw from their personal and professionals experiences.

According to U.S. News and World Report, enrollment in online programs has increased by 832 percent over the past the past nine years.
