Dignitaries from Lindenwood University, the Missouri National Guard, as well as the City of St. Charles collected today at the school to showcase the unveiling of two online graduate degree programs, which will be the Bachelor of Arts in general studies and also a Master of Arts in leadership. The programs are developed in order to fulfill the needs of the military personnel, who frequently benefit from the versatility of online courses.
The online bachelor’s degree in general studies as well as the master’s degree in leadership have been chosen in response to feedback offered by members associated with the Missouri National Guard, who requested them specifically. Both online degree courses will be available in January of 2013.
Attendees of this particular ceremony also had the opportunity to hear from members of Lindenwood University’s brand new Student Veterans Organization and to also take a sneak peak at Lindenwood’s new Veterans Affairs Center, which will officially open up in November. The Veterans Affairs Center will be a fully staffed center where military students can easily hold meetings, finish coursework, gain information regarding their academic status, and more.
“It will be more than just a room, but a one-stop shop where veterans and service members can get the answers they need in the manner they deserve,” said Jann Weitzel, PhD, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost. “In addition to our new online offerings, it will be another way in which we honor our commitment to military personnel and thank them for choosing Lindenwood University as their partner in education.”
