BS Business & Professional Leadership
While similar, this program differs from a traditional business degree in that it assumes the student is seeking a general studies degree with an emphasis in the soft-skills and decision-making aspect of business. This major scans the most important concepts in business and organizational leadership. Students may take practicum credit for either the ministry or marketplace in lieu of general electives.
This is the degree normally understood in the marketplace to be for students ready to advance in their careers. It is also suitable for students wishing to start their careers in a business field where soft-skills, leadership potential, and experience are important.
The Bachelor of Science in Psychology is designed for students who plan to enter more directly into the career world.
A minimum of a master’s degree is required at the entry level into the field of professional psychology and counseling. The Bachelor of Science degree will prepare one for a number of paraprofessional areas.
