College has four new academic degree programs

Midway College announced today that it has several new academic degree programs: Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice; Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting (BBA), Bachelor of Arts in Integrated Marketing Communication, and a Master of Education (M.Ed) Teacher Leader Program. The programs are part of a three-year strategic plan which calls for the addition of new academic programs to support enrollment, which declined last year.

"These new programs in Accounting, Criminal Justice and Integrated Marketing Communication were developed by our faculty in response to the market needs in the area and in consultation with our admissions office on requests they have received over the past few years for these programs," said Dr. Laura Armesto, provost and vice president for academic affairs.

"The Master of Education (M.Ed) Teacher Leader program is designed for current teachers to earn a master's degree with a teacher leader endorsement and Rank II status. It is offered online with a few face-to-face courses to allow working teachers to complete the coursework and remain in their classroom with their students. The Accounting and Criminal Justice majors will be offered in our Women's College, and for our co-ed students in the evening and online."

Meanwhile, Armesto announced that the Bachelor of Arts in Sport Management will now be offered online "for student convenience and to offer this specialized program to a larger audience. It will continue to be a program offered on our Midway campus for our Women's College students."
