Wilmington, DE – Goldey-Beacom College (GBC) is pleased to announce the launch of two new degree programs for fall 2022 enrollment. Both programs were approved on March 31, 2022 by the Delaware Department of Education.
These two programs have been developed to provide expanded options for students. GBC President Colleen Perry Keith said, “Data Analytics is something that both employers and students were asking for. Interdisciplinary studies will allow students to create a unique major that closely matches the career path they envision. The College listens closely to employers through our Career Services Advisory Board and seeks to meet their needs through our academic programs. These new programs address those needs.”
Dr. Keith continued, “We anticipate strong student interest in these programs based upon the student and employer input we have received. We have several other programs and certificates in the design pipeline that we will be seeking approval for going forward. We believe that certificates will provide a way for individuals to get workforce ready with just a few classes, and once complete, certificates will be able to be stacked into a degree program if the student so desires.”
