According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, careers for computer and information systems managers are expected to grow by 18 percent nationally over the next decade. The new Technology Management program will meet the needs of a variety of students including those currently working in the IT field and those who have earned existing college credits and seek to finish their bachelor's degrees. This accelerated program does not require students to take entry-level courses that are often required for traditional students, allowing students to efficiently earn their degrees.

"The Technology Management degree completion program is designed to meet the various facets of the IT field by providing students with a feasible way to complete their studies, without needing to re-take courses they are already proficient in," said Brian Finnegan, Ed.D., program manager and faculty chair of the Information Technology program at Peirce College. "The program is available both on campus and online and will allow students to have the flexibility to continue working while pursuing their degrees."

Similarly, Peirce College's Legal Studies in Business degree completion program can be completed entirely online or on-campus. This program is tailored to students who have earned up to 90 credits from previous college coursework or an associate degree. Courses will focus on areas such as contract principles, policy and regulations, and compliance programs.

"Our Legal Studies in Business program is a great fit for students interested in expanding their career opportunities through business management roles in corporate or legal departments, business development, or traditional legal services," said Edwin Miller, J.D., assistant dean and professor in the Legal Studies department at Peirce College. "This program also offers a robust foundation for those interested in attending law school or an MBA program following their time at Peirce."

Finally, the Criminal Justice Studies bachelor's program is oriented toward students interested in a criminal justice career who desire an education that provides them hands-on experience that will prepare them for their careers. "Our bachelor's degree program in Criminal Justice Studies was created by a faculty and advisory board comprised of judges, homeland security professionals, federal agents, and police officers with extensive experience in the criminal justice field and a deep understanding of career demands," said Robert Brzenchek, program manager, criminal justice at Peirce College. With classes available both on campus and online, the program offers working adult students an opportunity to obtain the education needed to pursue careers in law enforcement, correctional systems, criminal justice investigations, private security, juvenile justice, and more.

Students can apply for these new programs by completing the online application form.
