GREENSBORO – Students in at least one online program at UNC Greensboro don’t have to wait for their degree to put their new skills to work. They can do it right now.
In the accompanying video, Dr. Karen Bull, Dean of UNCG Online, highlights UNCG’s Bachelor of Science in Integrated Professional Studies, an online program first offered in Fall 2019.
The courses encourage students to use their problem-solving skills to take on real-world projects, rather than conventional academic exams. Because 80% of UNCG students work either part- or full-time, many can make use of their learning immediately.
“What we hear from students quite often is that the content they’ve learned in the classroom they can apply right away to their work setting,” Bull says.
“They’re seeing a return on that investment and their commitment to their education and achieving their goals. It spurs them on – it’s really wonderful.”
