Ancilla College will add three degrees next fall. The Marshall County-based school says the sports management, hospitality and tourism and culinary arts management associate programs bring its total to 21.
The school says all programs will fall under its "flat-rate" pricing plan, with the possible exception of culinary arts, which may have additional charges associated with the degree.
President Ken Zirkle says "students want degrees that are market-driven. They want to walk out knowing they are going to be able to get a job or easily transfer to a four-year college. That was the motive behind the push for creating new programs."
The school is experiencing major growth, including a 23 percent increase in enrollment, its first residence hall, a student life center and dining facilities and plans for more on-campus housing. It has also added cross country, lacrosse, tennis, bowling, wrestling and dance teams.
