Bethel College plans to launch three new on-campus programs and three online programs in Fall 2019. The new majors include Computer Sciences, Business Marketing and English as a New Language on campus, and Cyber Security, Business Marketing and a Master’s in Sport Administration online.
The Computer Science degree will add to the school’s existing Computer Science minor, and grants will fund the renovation of classroom space into two computer labs, with one including 25 stations and one collaboration lab for teamwork case studies.
English as a New Language is designed to meet the needs of general education teachers, with graduates able to become licensed and certified in ENL, upon completion. Business Marketing will be offered online and on campus, and Cyber Security is a new totally online degree that will teach new techniques, including system architecture, hacking and cyber forensics.
“We prepare students who can tackle with expertise and integrity the challenges posed by cyber technology, particularly those associated with the collection, use, and security of data in computer networks,” says Chair of the Department of Mathematical & Engineering Sciences Alice Ramos, Ph.D.
The Master’s in Sport Administration will emphasize intercollegiate athletics compliance. More information on the new degree programs can be found here.
