Geneva College's Adult Degree Completion Program (ADCP), an accelerated undergraduate program for adults who have some college and/or work experience, now offers a totally online bachelor’s degree completion program. The first class begins on March 4, 2013, and applications are now being accepted.
The first major to be offered online is human resources. It is designed as a practical education suited for professionals dealing with real-life issues in the workplace and everyday life. Geneva College’s ADCP in human resources covers topics related to employee and labor relations, training and development, group dynamics, styles of communication, ethics and decision making, effective supervision techniques and organizational behavior. The ADCP program also focuses on the importance of broad perspectives to help prepare effective, understanding and ethical workplace leaders.
Geneva has included online education as part of its curriculum for years before making the move to provide a completely online program for students. “This enables us to expand our mission to provide quality Christian education to busy adults who don't have the time or means to go to a classroom,” says Ralph Phillips, Director of the ADCP .
The ADCP is fast-moving, providing students with the opportunity to finish their bachelor’s degree in just under a year-and-a-half. Now that there is a fully online alternative, students can receive a high-quality education at their own convenience. Students have the ability to log in anytime and anywhere to work on their degrees.
Nora Sheller will be starting the online human resources program this spring. She was attracted to the program because of Geneva's academic standing, proximity to her home and flexibility to fit her schedule. “My work schedule can become demanding at different times of the year due to different circumstances,” says Sheller. “The online program allows me to get started when I have the time, instead of waiting for my work schedule to change.”

For students who have not completed the minimum number of credits required for the ADCP program, Geneva also offers the Bridge Program. Bridge classes are conducted in the classroom, as partially-online or fully online. More information can be found at www.geneva.edu/bridge.
