As many people are looking for education opportunities in order to assist their personal growth, schools across the country are suddenly finding themselves having to increase their course offerings in an effort to meet the demand.
Valdosta State University (VSU) announced that its master of arts in literature and language and bachelor of science in organizational leadership were recently approved by the University System of Georgia's Board of Regents.
Both degree programs will be offered online, and school officials believe that the new master's concentration will meet a wide appeal for students looking for virtual options.
"This degree will attract students state-wide and nationally," said Mark Smith, the head of the English department. "Valdosta State has a good academic reputation and this online master's program will continue the tradition. It is designed with the time constraints of public school teachers. They will find the program to be as intense and rigorous as the master's in English, which is offered in the traditional classroom setting."
