Bryan College will begin offering online graduate certificates and an Associate’s degree in business in January 2012, Dean of Adult and Graduate Studies Dr. Michael Chase has announced.
The new graduate-level programs include a certificate in human resources management and a certificate in marketing. Both are open to individuals who have completed a Bachelor’s degree and require five classes, which can be completed in one year.
“These are not part of our Master’s degree programs, but can be completed in conjunction with a Master’s program or as a stand-alone certificate,” Dr. Chase said. “We developed these programs because so many of our MBA students asked for them.”
Both the human resources and the marketing certificates “will give students an opportunity to qualify for career advancement as they demonstrate an understanding of a particular field,” he said. The courses will be taught online by full-time and adjunct professors who have experience in the field, he said.

Associate of Science in Business
The Associate of Science in Business degree is a 60 credit-hour program that can be completed in 18 months, with students taking two classes every seven weeks. On completion of the program, the hours earned at Bryan should transfer to an accredited four-year program if a student wishes to continue his or her education.
