)-- Delta College, a family-owned, proprietary higher education institution that has been serving the Baton Rouge community for more than 30 years, anticipates the growth in demand for career training programs of study in the state of Louisiana.
With budget cuts looming on the horizon for the state, Delta College has positioned itself to absorb a number of students who are interested in pursuing a program in business office administration, graphic design, medical billing or practical nursing. Additionally, Delta offers programs for dental and medical assistants.
“In this economic climate, it’s important that one’s course of study should lead to a career,” says Delta College president, Billy Clark. “Students need an affordable and rewarding college experience; they need to get more for their money. With a family-friendly environment and strong roots in the Baton Rouge community, Delta offers an alternative to a community college.”
As enrollment numbers climb in state institutions, and the cost of state-funded college tuition continues to rise, schools like Delta College are filling a dire need in the education arena. The growth of the medical field continues at an exponential rate, driving a need for nursing and medical professionals.
Because Delta College offers highly specialized training in specific career programs that are continually in demand, it allows its students a competitive edge within the job market prior to graduation. The college offers exclusive career and job placement services that work in tandem with the students to secure a primary job post-graduation, which drastically sets the college apart from similar institutions.
