Jackson, MS, November 24, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Education Online Services Corporation, in conjunction with the College of Education at the Jackson State University (JSU), is proud to announce the launch of the first, of what could be a series, of online degree programs for JSU. The Bachelors of Science in Childcare and Family Education is specifically for those students who have earned their Associates Degree or have completed a minimum of 45 credit hours of general education courses. This program will enable them to complete their Bachelors degree 100% online. Prospective students can find out more about this exciting opportunity at: http://www.jsums.edu/prospective.php
The Bachelors program for Childcare and Family Education is designed to teach candidates to use developmentally appropriate practice based on knowledge about how children develop and learn. Candidates will understand the developmental changes that typically occur in the years from birth through age 5 and beyond, variations in development that may occur, and how best to support children’s learning and development during these years.
With the current state of the economy and the need for many individuals to work overtime and even in some cases two jobs to make ends meet, the idea of pursuing a college degree tends to take a back seat. There are a huge proportion of students who are interested in pursuing postgraduate degrees, but for whatever circumstances are unable to attend classes on campus.
“To be competitive in today’s job market, individuals with degrees most certainly have an edge over individuals who do not. Businesses want qualified people and for many jobs, that translates into having a bachelor’s degree of some kind,” stated Ezell Brown, CEO of Education Online Services Corporation. He went on to say, “Online degree programs provide flexibility for the non-traditional student who must balance family, work, and school. They can work at their pace, whenever and wherever they choose.”
