Samford's Evening College (formerly Adult Degree Program) is excited to announce these changes for the 2013-2014 academic year.
2 to 4 Degree Completion Options for students with an associate of arts or associate of science from an Alabama community college. If you are a community college graduate, you can complete your Samford degree in the evenings with 68 credit hours of upper level coursework. All freshman and sophomore level credit will transfer.
New Degree Offerings. We will no longer award the Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies to students admitted fall 2013 and after. We will now award the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science, along with the Paralegal Certificate.
Shorter Terms, Faster Graduation. Beginning with fall term 2013, we will offer two eight-week terms each fall and spring, one "Jan" term, and two five-week terms in the summer. Students who have already completed their associate degree, and meet other admission requirements, can finish their bachelor's degree in the evenings at Samford in less than two years!
Beginning fall 2013, we will offer the Bachelor of Science with a major in Youth Studies. This degree is perfect for students interested in continuing their education at the graduate level in counseling, human services, or education, or for students interested in pursuing a career working with youth and adolescents in a social service, church-based, community service, or education setting not requiring certification.
Beginning fall 2014, we plan to offer a Bachelor of Science with a major in Criminal Justice. It may be possible for you to begin your coursework now and continue as a student in that new major once it is available. Contact us to learn how.
New Name. Our name change from Adult Degree Program to Evening College reflects our recognition of the degree-seeking student experience as well as the certificate-only student experience. We value all of our students and recognize the sacrifices you have made to continue your education in the evenings with us. We believe our new name and other changes will contribute to a richer Samford experience for you.
Mark your calendars for the nest Information Session, tentatively scheduled for Thursday, July 11. Email Laura Tomlin to RSVP for that event.
