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.
