Maryville University today announced the expansion of its online degree programs. Twelve additional programs — two master’s degrees and 10 bachelor’s degrees — will be offered in the fall of 2019 to allow students to pursue an accessible and flexible education.
The expansion of Maryville’s online degree portfolio aligns with the University’s student-centered approach, which aims to meet the higher education needs of all adult learners, regardless of location, age or circumstance. Working to create greater access to higher education, Maryville features convenient online programs, accepts transfer credits and does not require application fees or entrance exams. The new online degree programs include:
Master of Arts
• Strategic Communication and Leadership
Master of Science
• Data Science
Bachelor of Fine Arts
• Digital Media
“We are thrilled to continue our online programs expansion. Maryville University offers increased options to determined students whose life situation may not permit a traditional campus or classroom experience,” said President Mark Lombardi, Ph.D. “New, specialized programs, including data science, will position students to capitalize on growing career fields, while liberal arts staples such as English and history will strengthen the quality of the students’ education.”
The new online programs build on nearly 150 years of academic excellence at Maryville and a tradition of innovation that adapts to meet the changing needs of students. Nationally ranked Maryville University continues to grow impressively, reporting a 16 percent overall increase in enrollment this year and educating students from 50 states and 60 countries. The university also boasts a 97 percent job placement rate for graduates and will soon expand cutting-edge learning spaces across campus.
