HBCUsOnline Is Launching Enrollment for Summer Classes at Texas Southern University
Posted By: Neil Foote on May 03, 2011


HBCUsOnline, a major initiative showcasing online degree programs at some of the nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), is now accepting applications for two of Texas Southern University’s online masters’ degree programs.

Texas Southern University is offering an Executive Masters of Business Administration and an Executive Masters in Public Administration. Students can go to HBCUsOnline.com to apply for classes that begin May 31. Once enrolled, students will take classes from experienced university faculty. When completed, students will have a degree from the accredited, credible, high quality and nationally recognized black university.

Texas Southern, whose president is Dr. John M. Rudley, is an 85-year-old institution best known for its Thurgood Marshall School of Law, Jesse H. Jones School of Business, its Barbara Jordan-Mickey Leland School of Public Affairs, and its College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, which has produced 27 percent of all African-American pharmacists in the country.

“We are glad to partner with HBCU’s online to bring quality and accredited online degree programming to our students,” said Dr. Rudley. “Online gives our students options; affordability, convenience and flexibility. Our focus is to offer online degrees to individuals without accessibility to college campuses or with stacked work and family schedules. …

Another reason online degree program offerings are increasing and is key to students success, is that it gives one the opportunity to self-pace. Work and family schedules impose long hours on individuals, so it makes sense that curriculum with built-in flexibility is a big benefit.”

HBCUsOnline serves as a marketing, enrollment services and online student support vehicle to encourage students to apply to Texas Southern. Joyner is setting out to create the most comprehensive educational services company for black colleges in the world. Since last September, more than 150,000 adult student prospects visited HBCUsOnline.com.

Joyner also continues to operate the 12-year-old Tom Joyner Foundation, which has raised more than $60 million to help student remain enrolled in HBCUs, and is currently under the direction of Barbara Dunn Harrington, its executive director. The Foundation is aggressively working on developing new scholarships and diversifying its funding.
