June 3, 2011 | Ken, online education news | 1 Comment As the demand continues to grow for more online courses at universities and colleges across the U.S., more and more institutions of higher learning are taking action by starting online degree programsÂ orÂ expanding theÂ ones that are already in place.Â And oneÂ of those institutions taking actionÂ is Belhaven University. In an effort to reach more students, Belhaven has recently augmented its online program by making five new degrees available online. The newÂ degrees offered rangeÂ from anÂ associate’s up toÂ aÂ master’s. Belhaven created these online programs for and around people who cannot be in the classroom every day like traditional students. The five degrees that the university has added to its online catalogue are the following: Bachelor of Business Administration Bachelor of Health Administration Master of Sports Administration Master of Health Administration Associate of Arts in Business “We are excited about expanding our online offerings, because it allows us to reach even more students who are interested in a Christ-centered education but need the flexibility to take their classes at home and on their own time,” said Kevin Russell, Vice President for University Advancement at Belhaven. Belhaven’s online degree program differsÂ from other online degreeÂ programs, because it emphasizes personal attention to each individual student.Â The benefits of online learning at Belhaven go further than just the flexibility of classes.Â Â Belhaven’s highly qualifiedÂ faculty and staff offer the type of close, individualized attention to onlineÂ students not found atÂ mostÂ big universities. “While the programs are academically rigorous, the personal attention students receive during the admission process and once they enroll allows them to focus on their number-one priority… obtaining their degree,” said Russell.
