New England College Expands Offerings With Criminal Justice, Psychology and Healthcare Administration Degrees 100% Online

New bachelor's degrees online help students gain skills and credentials in three growing fields.

TAMPA, Fla., Dec. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With specific industries experiencing a spike in job growth and competition increasing among applicants, New England College (NEC) is adding three in-demand degrees to its online programs: BA in Criminal Justice, BA in Psychology and BS in Healthcare Administration. Each program is designed to give prospective students new skills and an educational edge, all through the convenience of 100% online learning. Enrollment begins December 13 for each online undergraduate degree program.

Higher Education for Enduring Careers 
Students enrolling in one of NEC's new degree programs online will be poised to take advantage of burgeoning opportunities. Unlike some of today's trendier career alternatives, each field is certain to remain in demand due to the inherent needs of people, organizations and communities.

  • Criminal Justice: Our nation's streets and communities will always need protection and the legal system will always need to be upheld or challenged, providing job security to professionals in law enforcement, corrections, social services, the justice system and law.
  • Psychology: From case managers and community service managers to rehabilitation specialists and psychiatric technicians, the need for psychological services in schools, hospitals, substance abuse treatment centers and social services agencies is expected to fuel demand for years to come.
  • Healthcare Administration: Caregivers will be needing responsible leaders to help in healthcare management for specific departments or entire facilities, as an aging population that remains active much later in life creates faster than average job growth.

A Distinctive Approach to Education 
Prospective students in any NEC undergraduate degree online program can expect the same quality education and personalized attention they'd receive on campus. In addition, regionally accredited New England College offers competitive tuition and seven-week classes which allow students to complete their bachelor's degree in as few as 28 months. "New England College takes a distinctive approach to enrollment, considering each individual's unique accomplishments and personal goals," says Mark Watman, VP of Academic Affairs. "Our focus is on providing our students with a relevant education that's centered on a sense of personal and professional transformation. A New England College education makes a difference. Now, through our online programming, we're proud to be able to bring our unique approach to individuals across the nation."

Academic Excellence Meets Online Convenience 
Participants enrolling in a New England College undergraduate degree program online will learn through highly interactive courses featuring instructors that provide insight, motivation and individual attention. Features available in most NEC online classrooms include professor-led streaming and downloadable videos, interactive live sessions featuring virtual whiteboards and chat rooms for collaborating with colleagues. "Individuals wanting to gain new skills and broaden their career opportunities through continuing education now have a means of doing so," says Adrian Marrullier, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for University Alliance, which powers NEC's online programs. "These programs enable people currently working to continue fulfilling their responsibilities while gaining respected credentials from a traditional university, 100% online."

Prospective students are encouraged to ask about NEC's special military tuition rate, transfer credit policy and degree completion programs. Financial aid options are available, and a 2011-2012 study by NEC's Student Financial Services office found that 91% of students who apply, qualify for some form of financial aid.
