If you’re ready to further your career,Geneva College’s Adult Degree Programs can help you finish your degree. And with 11 locations, doing so has never been more convenient. Choose from four practical majors: Christian Ministry Leadership, Human Resources, Human Services and Organizational Development. Designed for busy adults like you, the ADP can be completed in as little as 17 months if you have some previous college experience. And if you don’t, we offer the Bridge Program, with online options available, to help you get started.
In addition to timely completion of your degree, our program has an impressive graduation rate, consistently above the average.
In the ADP, you register for all courses in your major at one time. Your online class calendar shows you the dates for all of the courses in your major and when your assignments are due. You don’t have to worry about scheduling the 48 credits of your major. And if you need additional courses to meet graduation requirements, your enrollment counselor will work with you to choose and schedule those courses in our Bridge Program.
We send textbooks and course materials to your home prior to the start of class, so you don’t have to spend time going to the bookstore or searching for books online. The cost of textbooks is included in tuition.
While you’ll complete your degree in as little as 17 months, "accelerated" doesn't mean that you'll just cram credit hours into a shorter time frame. Accelerated learning occurs because as an adult, you already possess a wealth of personal and professional experience to share with others and use in your own academic development. Our classrooms do more than simply introduce you to new concepts and ideas: we take your experience, help you apply it to the workplace in unique ways and help you interpret it from a uniquely Christian perspective. The result—you learn more at a quicker pace and retain it for use in your current or future career.
We make completing your college degree convenient for you. You will be in a classroom just one evening a week from 6 to 10 p.m. Most of our degree completion programs can be completed at one of our 11 locations throughout western Pennsylvania including Pittsburgh, Monroeville, Butler, Cranberry, Johnstown, Somerset, Everett and our campus in Beaver Falls.
Several of your courses are hybrid—40% classroom and 60% online. You do your online assignments on your own time at your own pace, in the comfort of your home. You reduce the time spent traveling to and from class, spending valuable gas money. Your online classroom contains everything you need to be successful. There you will find your classmates, your assignments, your instructor, the library and more—all at your fingertips.
Because several of your courses are hybrid courses, your computer and Internet connection is just as important as your textbooks. Your computer should be able to access the Internet, have the latest versions of a web browser and have a good word processing program. We strongly recommend that you have high-speed Internet access to be able to watch videos and interact properly with your classmates and instructor.
You will have access to our McCartney Library on campus in Beaver Falls, PA, and you will have access to McCartney Library 24/7 from the comfort of your home. You will access databases containing millions of articles that you can use for research and your studies.
You won’t be a nameless face in a classroom of hundreds. We keep our classes small—between 10-18 students—so you can get to know your classmates and your instructor. You will be in class with the same group of students for every course you take in your major. You might share networking opportunities, communicate challenges and joys, prayer requests, and more. Each student will be just like you, going through the same courses, and sharing in each other’s accomplishments together!
Your instructors are knowledgeable, academically qualified and experienced professionals who combine cutting-edge experience with established theory. With our application-oriented approach, you can take what you learn today and apply it immediately to your job.
