Two more graduate degree programs will soon join 11 others available online from Fort Hays State University.
The master of science in school psychology and the education specialist in psychology will go online in fall 2012 through FHSU's Virtual College.
"A lot of people who are interested have full-time jobs in education, so they are not able to come to campus," said Betsy Leeds, instructor of psychology.
FHSU currently has three associate degree programs and 24 bachelor's programs available online in addition to the 11 graduate programs. The Virtual College also has 14 certificate programs available. The two psychology degrees will bring to 40 the number of FHSU degree programs available through the Virtual College.
"The university's mission is to make an education available to the people of Kansas," said Dr. Paul Faber, dean at the College of Arts and Sciences at FHSU. "That includes," he said, "those who live a considerable distance from a university and those who are held by their circumstances in a situation in which they cannot complete an education in the traditional face-to-face way. The Department of Psychology faculty are the ones who deserve the credit for helping people off-campus to get access to these degree programs."
Enrollment priority deadline is March 1, though enrollment will be open until April 15. Apply online at the FHSU Graduate School website, www.fhsu.edu/academic/gradschl. For more information, contact Leeds at 785-628-5855.
