Columbia College will launch more than 20 new academic programs online this fall as part of its commitment to preparing students to meet the needs of tomorrow’s workforce.
From Global Studies to Supply Chain Management and Logistics, the new programs, which are open for enrollment now, include two master’s degrees, five bachelor’s degrees, one associate degree and 12 certificates, many of which are stackable. Four existing bachelor’s degrees offered in-seat will also be added to the college’s online offerings, and three new emphasis areas will enhance its Master of Business Administration program.
“The creation of these programs is responsive to what students need to succeed in their future endeavors,” says Dr. Piyusha Singh, provost and senior vice president for Academic Affairs. “The college sought and received important feedback from various stakeholders throughout this process. We believe these offerings reflect what employers are looking for when hiring the next generation of leaders.”
The programs will be housed within CC’s three recently reorganized schools starting in the 2023-24 academic year, including:
- School of Public Service (Dean Dr. Sandra Hamar)
- School of Arts & Sciences (Dean Dr. Jennifer Jewell)
- Robert W. Plaster School of Business (Dean Jonathon Moberly, J.D.)
