(AUSTIN, Texas) 10.1.12 — Huston-Tillotson University officials today announce a new Adult Degree Program (ADP) designed for working adults to secure the Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration or Criminal Justice.  The University’s new initiative includes a highly focused adult degree program supported by advertising and marketing; student recruitment, retention and accounting; curriculum development; and learning management systems and support.

ADP staff are accepting applications now for the first cohort of adult learners to begin in January 2013.  Students will receive a personalized degree completion plan with one-on-one advising throughout the program.  Courses will be offered in sequence one evening a week with learning teams for group projects and assignments.  Financial aid is also available to those who qualify.

“Since 1875, the sons and daughters of HT have made a dramatic difference in the quality of life for the communities and people they touch. HT has educated first generation students who are often faced with a myriad of challenges. These students may find the quality and quantity of college courses to be rigorous and demanding. Huston-Tillotson provides diverse students a proven environment for academic success. True to its roots, Huston-Tillotson embraces the responsibility of intellectually challenging well-prepared students while offering those who may need support an opportunity to reach their full potential,”  said HT President Larry L. Earvin, Ph.D.

The business administration degree delivers a course of study preparing competent business professionals to meet the challenges of an interdependent world with students making an immediate contribution to the business environment.  Within the four-year interdisciplinary criminal justice program, students will receive the tools necessary for critical knowledge, communication, personal growth, and real-world application opportunities.
