WYOMISSING, Pa. — Earning a degree may help you to achieve career advancement and enhance your professional skills; however, it can be difficult for adults to juggle their family responsibilities and careers. Penn State Berks wants to help you achieve your goals. The Office of Continuing Education will hold an adult student information session beginning at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, May 25, in room 101, Franco Building. Attendees must register in advance.
This comprehensive session will provide adult students with information on the college’s 20 baccalaureate degree programs, four associate degrees, and certificate programs, as well as noncredit courses and alternative options. Representatives will be available to answer questions on admissions, academic advising, financial aid, student learning support and career services.
In addition, the organizational leadership (OLEAD) program chair will be in attendance to highlight the degree program. The bachelor of science in organizational leadership is an accelerated degree program specifically designed with the adult learner in mind. The flexible course schedule offers convenience, while providing an excellent level of education.
Diana Vavreck, a current adult student, commented, "The OLEAD program is great! The classes offered are very relevant and applicable to the everyday work environment. The professors are supportive and caring ... Students are able to develop skills to benefit them in their career."
