Greenville College plans to offer an accelerated degree program this fall in Vandalia.
Working adults with prior college experience will have the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree while attending class at the Kaskaskia College Vandalia Center.
Classes meet one night a week for 18 months, and students who complete the program will earn a bachelor of science degree in organizational leadership from Greenville College.
“The major approaches the study of leadership from an interdisciplinary approach, drawing from the fields of psychology, sociology, communication and philosophy,” said program Director Dr. Steve Holler.
"Each of these fields contributes to teaching us how to be more effective leaders within our organizations," he said.
Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that a bachelor’s degree can lower ones risk of unemployment and increase earning potential.
By offering accelerated courses throughout Illinois, Greenville College has helped more than 1,500 adult students graduate with bachelor’s degrees since the program began 14 years ago.
“The curriculum is interesting and applicable to future employment and life. I learned so much about the organization of a business, the cultures of others, group behavior, business communication and leadership,” said Dawn Stokes, who recently earned her degree in organizational leadership while attending class in Champaign.
Online courses are available for students who are unable to attend in Vandalia.
“We are building on the success of our face-to-face courses, and working hard to ensure the same quality instruction for online students,” Holler said.
Greenville College continues to expand its partnership with Kaskaskia College to offer a variety of bachelor’s and master’s degrees to qualified students.
