Huston-Tillotson University Officials Announce a New Adult Degree Program for the
Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration and Criminal Justice
(AUSTIN, Texas) — 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 academic challenges. These students are often easily intimidated and overwhelmed when faced with new academic demands. 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.
