Students can graduate in as few as nine months and apply course credits toward degree programs
BUFFALO, NY (February 25, 2010) Bryant & Stratton College, a pioneer in career education since 1854 and the premier provider of online associate degrees, has announced the launch of nine new online certificate programs. On average, students can earn a certificate in just nine months, preparing them for positions in business, healthcare, human resources and criminal justice fields. Courses are online and led by credentialed instructors. Additionally, students who successfully complete one of the new online certificate programs can articulate their course credits upon acceptance into a corresponding Bryant & Stratton College degree program.
Jobs that only require a high school diploma are disappearing, so to compete for positions in this modern economy, everyone needs to make sure they have up-to-date skills, said Scott Traylor, Bryant & Stratton';s Director of Admissions for Online Education. These new online certificate programs offer students an opportunity to quickly gain the training necessary to qualify for positions in some of the fastest growing fields.
