Evangel University (AG) has recently revised and fine-tuned its adult Professional Studies Program in communication, and now offers a bachelor's degree in Professional Communication.
"Our Professional Communication major is designed for those interested in using their skills in fields such as business, government, health care, military and not-for-profit organizations," said Nancy Pace-Miller, program coordinator. "Our grads are qualified to work in traditional media as well as in corporate communication."
The Professional Studies Program at Evangel is an accelerated degree completion program, designed for working professionals who have more than 60 college credits and need to complete a degree.
Evangel also offers an accelerated Associate of Arts program for those wishing to enroll with less than 60 college credits.
Classes in the Professional Communication major will begin in January. Applications are available at http://www.evangel.edu/ProfessionalStudies/index.asp, or by calling (417) 865-2811 ext. 7229.
Students in these programs are assigned to a cohort of approximately 15-20 students with the same major, and they progress through courses together. Courses meet four hours per week, and each course lasts for five weeks.
According to Pace-Miller, "This requires students to commit to approximately 10-15 hours per week of reading, studying, research and writing.
"In-class lecturing is kept to a minimum, as learners interact with one another, discussing assigned readings and application of text theories to real-world situations," she added.
Evangel, located in Springfield, Missouri, currently offers adult Professional Studies comprehensive majors in three areas: Professional Communication, Human Services and Management.
