Pierce College now offers a new, entirely online Associate in Business degree in an effort to meet the changing needs of our students. With many people often juggling multiple responsibilities while attending school, this option provides an opportunity for students to achieve their educational goals in their spare time.
The requirements for the online degree are the same as the traditional program, but with the added flexibility of allowing students to complete the work at their convenience.
“So many of our students struggle with balancing college and other parts of their lives,” said Dean of Business and Social Science Sachi Horback. “With our fully online program, these students now have a solid option to complete their degree.”
Many of these courses will make greater use of free or low-cost textbooks available to students online. Thanks to a number of online learning tools, students will also be able to interact with their professors and other students through video and audio functions.
The program works best for those students who are self-motivated with strong time management skills. The degree is also fully transferable, allowing students to complete their first two years of college online, before moving on to a four-year university.
