Miles College, the historically Black educational institution in Fairfield, Alabama, has announced the addition of several programs which according to the college are designed “to meet workforce demands.”
The new programs include an online bachelor’s degree in business administration, a bachelor’s degree in psychology, and a minor degree program in game design offered through the computer and information science degree program.
In addition to the new academic programs, the college announced that high school and community college graduates with a 2.75-grade point average will get a $2,500 scholarship renewable for three years. All students who gain admission to the college and meet the minimum qualifications will be awarded this scholarship.
“This adjustment is the first step in aligning our academic infrastructure to support President Bobbie Knight’s vision of providing a quality educational experience to all students who plan to enroll at Miles College,” says Michael Johnson, vice president of student success. “We are allocating resources to fund student’s unmet financial needs and offering academic programs that meet workforce demands.”
