ACHIEVE adds new major
WILMORE, KY—Busy working adults now have another option to complete their bachelor’s degree at Asbury College.
ACHIEVE , Asbury College’s adult degree completion program is adding a new major beginning this fall. The leadership and ministry major is beneficial for working adults who are interested in leadership, Biblical knowledge and ministry or pastors who never completed their college degree.
Registration for the new ACHIEVE class begins Aug. 28 with classes starting Sept. 11. ACHIEVE began offering classes in January with the management and ethics major. The management and ethics degree offers courses in business and Christian principles.
Dr. Carol Eades joins Asbury College as the assistant director of ACHIEVE. She was previously chair of the Academic Foundations Department and an assistant professor of English at St. Catharine College in St. Catharine, Ky. Eades has more than 10 years experience in higher education as both an instructor and administrator. She holds a doctorate in curriculum and administration, master’s in educational counseling and psychology, and bachelor’s in English and political science—all from the University of Kentucky.
ACHIEVE also welcomes staff assistant, Elizabeth Corle. Recently relocated from Greensboro, N.C., Corle has more than seven years experience working in higher education. She was previously a marketing and special events coordinator at Guilford College in Greensboro. Prior to Guilford, she worked six years in the non-profit communications field. Corle holds a bachelor’s degree in English from Meredith College in Raleigh, N.C.
Eades says ACHIEVE is excellent for those busy adults who wish to advance their career by completing a college degree. One of the top features of this program for most students is that they can earn their bachelor’s degree by attending class one night a week for just two years. Also, students don’t have to worry about planning around a new schedule every semester. If their first course meets on Monday evenings, every course they take in the program will meet on Monday.
Most ACHIEVE students receive some type of financial aid. Students should fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to find out if they qualify.
