A Georgia-based university recently announced that it has launched two new online degree programs for nontraditional students who wish to advance their careers.
The school now offers an online bachelor's degree in business information systems (BIS) and a master's in criminal justice. Working professionals who cannot commit to attending campus-based classes may want to consider enrolling in these online education programs.
Students who pursue the BIS degree will receive instruction in the development of computing skills and technologically-inclined strategies for improving business decision making. Scholars will also take courses that focus on e-commerce training, problem solving and social networking.
The online master's degree in criminal justice features two concentration areas: corrections or law enforcement. According to school officials, individuals who are interested in teaching criminal justice at high schools or community colleges may also benefit from the graduate program, which can be completed in a year.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the number of job opportunities for police officials and detectives will grow by 10 percent over the next eight years. Employment options for computer and information systems managers should increase by about 17 percent by 2018.
