LAFAYETTE, La. -

The University of Louisiana at Lafayette is launching a new online degree program in general studies designed for working professionals.

In a press release, the university says their aim for this new online degree is to entice former students who did not graduate,to finish earning their degrees. The program has been designed for working professionals to take classes at their own pace while balancing other obligations.

"The purpose of the degree program is to provide an avenue for those adult students who have 'stopped out' of higher education. The online venue provides an opportunity that is affordable, flexible and student-centered," said Dr. Bobbie B. DeCuir, dean of University College.

Three concentrations will be offered in the General Studies degree program including arts and humanities, behavioral science and applied science. Classes will range from a number of departments at the university and will allow for customization to class schedules.

"While many new jobs require specialized training in technology-related areas, there is a need for graduates who are broadly trained to think analytically and critically while also demonstrating effective communication skills," Decuir added.

Those looking to enroll in these classes must have completed at least 45 credit hours and maintained a minimum 2.0 GPA. UL Lafayette will continue to offer a bachelor's degree in general studies in a traditional classroom setting.

The application deadline is July 15. Visit onlinedegrees.louisiana.edu for more information.
