TYLER (KYTX) - As an innovative way to meet the needs of students, The University of Texas at Tyler offers accelerated degree tracks that allow them to earn a degree faster and begin working sooner, Dr. Alisa White, provost and senior vice president for academic affairs, announced.

These programs allow students to complete a bachelor of science in just three years and include the flexibility of a summer schedule that is entirely online.

Majors within the accelerated degree tracks include accounting, finance, health studies, human resource development, kinesiology, management, marketing and technology.

"Students are served by the innovative delivery of instruction and scheduling of classes." White said. "Encouraging and facilitating students' ability to complete a degree in a timely matter is a good thing."

The accelerated programs will offer the same courses, experiences and outcomes as the four-year degree plans. Students can save money by taking courses online, and they can enter the workforce earlier, which is good for the economy.

The bachelor's degree programs within the College of Business and Technology prepare students for careers in business administration, human resource development and technology.

"Our new 3-year degree program will benefit everybody. The program will allow students to enter the workforce, start their careers and begin earning financial returns on their education a full year earlier than traditional programs allow. I am thrilled that UT Tyler is once again proving to be a statewide leader in the effort to modernize higher education," said Dr. Harold Doty, College of Business and Technology dean.

The bachelor's degree programs within the College of Nursing and Health Sciences prepare students for careers in exercise-related professions, including positions in clinical and business settings, as well as graduate and professional studies.

 

"These accelerated programs demonstrate that The University of Texas at Tyler is not only innovative in the manner in which we offer degree programs, but that we are also both very sensitive to the rising costs of an outstanding college education as well as to the workforce needs of the East Texas community," said Dr. Scott Marzilli, College of Nursing and Health Sciences interim dean.

For more information, contact Kimberlie Carrell, health sciences adviser, 903.565.5926 or kcarrell@uttyler.edu; or Amanda Ritchie and Stephanie Long, business advisers, 903.566.7363 or cbtadvising@uttyler.edu.

One of the 15 campuses of the UT System, UT Tyler offers excellence in teaching, research, artistic performance and community service. More than 80 undergraduate and graduate degree programs are available at UT Tyler, which has an enrollment of almost 7,000 high-ability students at its campuses in Tyler, Longview and Palestine.
