National University College, an institution dedicated to educating Hispanics by offering courses online and in Spanish, is adding nine programs in the areas of business, forensics and human resources, school officials announced.
Students can begin enrolling in accredited programs that include four degrees focused in business, four degrees in criminal justice, and a bachelor’s of science in nursing. The new degrees prepare students to be forensic investigators, information systems analysts, human resources specialists, nurses and other high-demand jobs in line with the workforce needs of employers across the country.
“Our mission is to help Hispanics be more competitive in the labor market so they can continue to improve their contributions to their families, their neighborhoods, their cities and ultimately their country,” said Jonathan Morris, executive vice president of National University College, online division. “Education is pivotal to achieve any of these.”
Many students, Morris said, are motivated to enroll by the 24/7-class schedule flexibility, the expansive options of degrees, and the ability to enroll in classes taught in Spanish.
“A good number of our students have full time jobs but want better careers. Or perhaps they never finished their college education and now their busy lives include caring for family. Our programs have proven to be ideal for them,” said Morris, who has directed the expansion of National University College – online to reach Hispanic students in 44 states since 2011.
The new programs are: Associate Degree in Business Administration; Bachelor of Business Administration with a Major in General Business; Bachelor of Business Administration degrees with a Major in either Human Resources or Business Intelligence; Bachelor in Criminal Justice degrees with Majors in either Homeland Security, Forensic Investigation, Human Services or Cyber Crimes; and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN).
“Educational attainment is very important for Hispanics,” said Dolymari Garcia Davila, dean of academic affairs for the online division. “We have found that by providing programs online, with classes and all student services offered fully in Spanish, we can give them the greatest opportunity for success and take a step at closing the gap both in education and viable employment.”
