Bryan College announced three additions that will continue to fulfill its mission of “educating students to become servants of Christ to make a difference in today’s world.”
Students in Bryan’s online and adult undergraduate programs offered through the School of Adult and Graduate Studies (AGS) will now have the same opportunity to earn a tuition-free master’s degree through the Bryan Difference Maker program also offered to residential students.
To qualify, students must earn their bachelor’s degree from Bryan, maintain continuous full-time enrollment, and graduate with a 3.75 GPA.
“We are excited about what this new opportunity will allow our online and adult students to accomplish in continuing their education at Bryan College,” said Vaughn Berger, Director of AGS Enrollment Management.
Bryan College currently offers online bachelor’s degrees in applied psychology and business administration, with four concentration areas to choose from.
Beginning in the fall of 2017, Bryan will offer two new specializations for its Master’s of Business Administration (MBA) program including healthcare administration and sports management.
The healthcare administration option is targeted towards students who wish to or already are working in the healthcare or healthcare administration fields.
The concentration will feature new courses that cover topics including healthcare systems, ethics, and operations management.
The sports management option will prepare students for careers in the sports and entertainment industry. Courses will cover topics including sports marketing, facility management, and finance.
Bryan College is now one of 45 colleges and universities officially recognized as a Tennessee Transfer Pathways (TTP) school.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for Bryan College to expand its reach and provide a Christ-centered education to deserving students," said Rick Taphorn, Vice President of Finance and Enrollment. "We look forward to this new partnership with the Tennessee Board of Regents and the Tennessee Transfer Pathways."
The TTP program guides students through the courses needed to help maximize their credit transfer while preparing them to transfer seamlessly to a four-year institution offering the junior and senior level courses. The TTP’s website features conversion charts that show which classes in the Tennessee Board of Regents will transfer to the equivalent at Bryan. Under the program, Bryan College currently offers two pathways in business administration and psychology.
