Muskingum offers MAP for adults wishing to complete undergraduate degrees

AUGUST 25, 2004 - Adults who wish they had completed their college degree can begin to make their wish come true this fall.

The Muskingum College Department of Graduate and Continuing Studies has created the Muskingum Adult Program (MAP), specifically tailored to adults who wish to complete their bachelor's degree.

Ruthann Fagan, Muskingum's associate vice president of academic affairs and dean of graduate and continuing studies, explained the decision to offer the new program by saying, "We've done a great deal of research on the need for bachelor's degree options for adults, and that research tells us that there is a strong desire for a program like MAP in the region. That, coupled with Muskingum's outstanding reputation as a college, makes this an ideal opportunity for adults who wish to complete their undergraduate degree."

Fagan went on to explain that the college's research also addressed what prospective adult students wanted in a degree completion program, and that MAP is specifically designed to meet those needs.

"This new program is designed to prepare and assist students for career advancement. To do that, adults want a program that is straight forward with flexible schedules, affordable tuition and job placement assistance. MAP will offer these features, and more."

A point of pride in the new program lies in its commitment to quality, Fagan pointed out. "The students who enroll in MAP will have access to the same outstanding faculty, staff and facilities as any other Muskingum student."

MAP will offer bachelor's degrees in accounting, business and education, and will use both on-campus and off-campus sites. Classes will be offered during the evening, on weekends and during the summer months, and will run on a twelve-month calendar with new sessions starting frequently.
