Alderson Broaddus University brings degree programs to Charleston, Beckley, and Fairmont

Alderson Broaddus University, in conjunction with area community and technical colleges, will be offering new bachelor’s degree programs in the Charleston, Beckley, and Fairmont areas.

Beginning with the fall semester, Alderson Broaddus’ Criminal Justice, Health Care Management, and Interdisciplinary Studies degree completion programs will be taught at the campuses of BridgeValley Community and Technical College in South Charleston, New River Community and Technical College in Beaver, and Pierpont Community and Technical College’s Advanced Technology Center.

In addition to the three new degrees, registration will continue with the existing Bachelor of Science in Professional Leadership program, which began this June at Pierpont CTC. Additional programs will be offered at all three locations in 2020.

“AB is pleased to have our community and technical college partners in this important initiative,” said Dr. Jim Owston, assistant provost for extended learning. “Our degree completion programs provide associate program graduates, and other working adults with some college credits the opportunity to complete a bachelor’s degree close to home.”
