POCAHONTAS, AR May 21 —BRTC has received approval from its accreditor the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) to offer the Associate of Science in Business.
The Associate of Science in Business provides a course of study for students who intend to transfer to a 4-year institution as business majors. Arkansas public 4-year institutions in Arkansas accept this degree. At the 4-year college, this degree satisfies all general and core business course requirements.
“This 2-year business degree will help BRTC business students start their path to a 4-year business degree,” said Phillip Dickson, BRTC dean of business and technology. “Students who attend BRTC for their first 2 years benefit from reduced tuition and smaller, more personal class sizes.”
The degree will be offered at BRTC starting in Fall 2020. Courses for the program are available on both the Pocahontas and Paragould campuses and many courses are available online.
“This is an awesome opportunity for all BRTC’s business students!” said Dickson.
