(CENTREVILLE) – There will be nine new programs waiting for students when the 2014 fall semester starts at Glen Oaks Community College.
New offerings include an Associate of Applied Science in Criminal Justice and five Associate of Arts degrees in Education and Human Services.
Each of the programs offer a different area of emphasis. They are: Early Childhood Education; Elementary Education; Secondary Education, Special Education, and Family Life Education. New certificate degree programs include the Educational Paraprofessional Certificate, the Early Childhood Certificate and the Coding Specialist/Physician-based Certificate.
The new program offers students a wider range of offerings in the field of education serving the pre-school population as well as aging adults. The family life emphasis prepares one to manage a non-profit organization and can serve as a pathway to a social work degree or related profession. It's a fast track for programs in social work, counseling and psychology.
Dr. Patricia Morgenstern, Dean of Academics and Extended Learning, says Glen Oaks has received a great deal of interest in offering a Criminal Justice program. In response, Morgenstern says an advisory team was formed and they developed a program that prepares students for law enforcement careers at the state, county and local levels, along with careers in criminal investigation, corrections, probation and parole.
Fall classes begin on August 25 at Glen Oaks, and registration is now underway. For more information you can call the school at 269-467-9945 or visit their website. CLICK HERE
