Today's "real world" occupations often require a unique combination of specialized skills.Working adults interested in pursuing a new career, or enhancing their current job path, can gain important advantages with education specifically suited to their occupational goals. This is why DeSales University's ACCESS program has developed a new option that gives students the opportunity to design a major that is not offered at the University. The self-designed degree is a B.A. in Liberal Studies planned very carefully with courses taken from various disciplines.
ACCESS Individualized Major Program
In addition to the University's core curriculum requirements, the student's course load will include no fewer than 12 and no more than 16 courses in the self-designed program of concentration. These areas of concentration may include: Computer Science, Art, Humanities, Theology, Criminal Justice, Marketing, Human Resource Management, Psychology, Management, Finance, English, Accounting, Communications, and a host of others.
For example, if you are working as a secretary in a church parish you may not necessarily be interested in a Theology or Business degree, but may want to expand your knowledge in both of these areas. The AIM program gives you the opportunity to customize your degree by taking various courses in both areas of business and theology for a degree in Parish Management. Or perhaps your goal is to work with at-risk teens where a degree in Intervention Counseling may be appropriate. Interested in art? Design a degree in Art Management. With the AIM program, choices to focus on your areas of interest are endless.
