Tuesday, December 11th, 2018

In an effort to make higher education even more obtainable and manageable, Coker has added two new, entirely online bachelor of science degrees in psychology and sociology. These two new degree options join Coker’s existing two online bachelors of science in business management and criminology.

Coker is committed to meeting the needs of today’s students, a population which includes substantial numbers of students working full-time or part-time jobs, raising families, and juggling a number of other obligations. Over the last few years, Coker has added five graduate programs, all of which are entirely online programs: M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instructional Technology, M.Ed. in Literacy Studies, M.S. in College Athletic Administration, M.S. in Criminal and Social Justice Policy, and a M.S. in Management and Leadership, and now four entirely online undergraduate degree programs.

"Coker's growth within online programs shows the college’s innovation and commitment to its students,” says Adam Connolly, vice president of enrollment management at Coker College. “The addition of our two newest programs will only strengthen the opportunities for future Cobras."

“In our 110th year, Coker continues to creatively approach education in the 21st century, all in the spirit of accessible education,” says Coker College President Robert Wyatt, echoing sentiments that were reflected recently in the college’s 2019 U.S. News and World Report’s rankings; Coker was recognized by its peers as having “a strong commitment to undergraduate teaching” and for being a “most innovative school,” ranking #3 and #5, respectively, in those categories among regional colleges in the south.
