May 22, 2012 - PRLog -- Montana State University has launched a new online bachelor's degree completion program for students who have at least two years of college credits but do not yet have a four-year degree.

The program, which offers a bachelor's degree in liberal studies, is designed for graduates of community colleges, tribal colleges, colleges of technology and other two-year programs. It is also appropriate for military personnel and veterans; people who need a bachelor's degree to advance on the job; and anyone interested in the broad-based education of a liberal studies degree. The program is offered fully online.

More than one-third of Montanans have an associate's degree or some college credits but not a bachelor's degree, said Peg Wherry, director of Montana State Online. She added that the new program will be particularly relevant to that group, and that development of the undergraduate degree completion program fits with some of the top initiatives MSU President Waded Cruzado set forth when she came to the university.

"A degree in liberal studies offers a flexible, multi-disciplinary education and is appropriate for careers in fields such as government, journalism, politics, communication and business, as well as preparation for medical school, law school or other graduate programs," said David Cherry, director of MSU's Liberal Studies program.

The degree requires courses in the arts, humanities, science, mathematics, social sciences, and foreign language, all of which will be offered online.
The program begins Fall 2012, and students can begin applying now. The application process differs for students who are returning to MSU and those who would be new transfer students. Personal consultations are encouraged. Contact distance@montana.edu.
