1st Online Undergraduate Degree launches at UMass Boston

BA in Global Affairs offered through College of Advancing & Professional Studies
BOSTON - April 4, 2014 - PRLog -- Students looking to begin an academic career at Boston’s only public research university, and those who simply wish to complete an undergraduate degree, now have an online option: UMass Boston’s Bachelor of Arts in Global Affairs Program, available through the university’s College of Advancing and Professional Studies (CAPS).

“The launch of the online BA in Global Affairs is an acknowledgment that online learning has taken its place alongside traditional on-campus classroom settings,” says CAPS dean Philip DiSalvio. “This new undergraduate degree program offers the same world-class faculty and high-quality education students have come to expect from popular online graduate degree and certificate programs offered at UMass Boston.”

The BA in Global Affairs is intended for students who wish to better understand and eventually make an impact on the world around them. It prepares students for careers in the globalized world of the 21st century in such areas as public service, international business, and leadership of nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations.

In addition to onsite internships, the program will include courses in topic areas such as contemporary issues in global affairs, global communications and information, foreign policy analysis, diplomacy, human security, international terrorism, and conflict resolution.

“As UMass Boston celebrates its 50th year, we see the impact of our alumni on Massachusetts and the nation,” says DiSalvio,”and we appreciate how our current students will continue that legacy as tomorrow’s leaders.”
