Edward Waters College in Jacksonville, Florida has been approved by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools-Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to launch its first-ever online degree program.
“We are ecstatic to learn of this exciting news that is demonstrable evidence of the rapidly advancing competitive profile of the academic enterprise at Edward Waters College,” said A. Zachary Faison, Jr., president of Edward Waters College.
According to the college, the program will provide students with the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a concentration in organization management through a completely online virtual environment.
“This is the first step in the comprehensive re-imagining of our academic curriculum as we look to expand our academic footprint on a national scale to undergird opportunities for future enrollment growth and to provide increased access to our programs to students from throughout the nation and world,” Dr. Faison said.
The new program is expected to launch in the 2020 calendar year.
