Registration for the summer session is currently underway through June 2, while registration for the fall semester is underway through Aug. 18.
Currently, bachelor's degrees offered for students just starting college or for those with credits already earned include family and child studies (a concentration in sociology), criminal justice, sociology and management. A new bachelor's degree in psychology will be added to the offerings in fall 2014.
Additionally, two other online learning programs are offered for students who meet certain requirements, according to Dr. Helen Ware, director of electronic learning at McNeese.
For student's holding a Registered Nurse license, McNeese's College of Nursing offers an online RN-BSN program while students with at least 60 hours of academic credit are eligible to enroll in the bachelor's degree program in organizational leadership.
"The organizational leadership program is a collaboration among all nine universities within the University of Louisiana System and students choose a concentration from nine options, each one available from a different university in the system," said Ware. "McNeese's concentration in strategic and global communication allows students to study communication as it relates to media, organizations and the work force."
Online master's degrees are offered in criminal justice and nursing. The master's program in criminal justice focuses on leadership within the law enforcement, corrections and judicial fields while the Master of Science in Nursing is offered through a consortium with three other state universities and offers concentrations in family nurse practitioner, psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner, nurse educator and nurse executive.
A number of undergraduate and graduate certificate programs are available for those students who already hold degrees and wish to specialize in specific areas of their fields. Undergraduate certificates are offered in school librarianship and nursing case management. Graduate certificates in family nurse practitioner, psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner and reading education are also offered.
