New SaturdaySelect and Degree Power Programs provide Miami Quality in Convenient Weekend or Evening Schedules
June 2, 2006
University Hamilton launches its new SaturdaySelect
and Degree Power Schedule programs with an open house
10 a.m.-11:30 a.m. Saturday, June 10, in the Harry
T. Wilks Conference Center, 1601 University Boulevard.
SaturdaySelect, www.saturdayselect.com, to begin fall semester 2006, provides students with the opportunity to complete an associate’s degree in arts in as little as two years by taking classes only on Saturdays and an occasional Sunday. Miami Middletown will begin the program in 2007.
The Degree Power Schedule program, www.degreepower.com, allows students to complete one of several associate degrees by attending classes only in the evening.
According to Miami Hamilton Dean Daniel E. Hall, the new programs address some of the higher education needs of Hamilton and the surrounding area. “Our community wants higher education alternatives to the traditional weekday schedule. Many learners are seeking high quality degree programs that fit their work and family schedules. Through SaturdaySelect and the Degree Power Schedule, we are offering Miami’s high quality programming to people who otherwise would not pursue a college education or who would have to enroll at higher priced private institutions,” he said.
classes are held mornings and/or afternoons in eight-week
sessions. Students can complete the associate’s
degree in arts in as little as two years. Courses
are offered 8:30 a.m. to noon Saturdays and noon-2p.m.
Sunday or 12:45 p.m.- 4:15 p.m. Saturday and 2:15
p.m.-4:15 p.m. Sunday.
Courses will be scheduled so students can enter in any semester. For students interested in earning a degree in the evening, the Degree Power Schedule is another option. Students can earn an associate in arts with concentrations in humanities and social sciences, an associate in applied technology in electrical and computer engineering technology or mechanical engineering technology, an associate of applied business, and a bachelor of science in applied science in engineering technology. In addition, students may combine weekend and evening classes. Both programs are designed to accommodate different needs and lifestyles.
Lee Sanders, Senior Associate Dean in charge of academics for Miami Hamilton, emphasizes that an associate’s degree from Miami stands alone as a prestigious credential or provides a solid foundation for a four-year degree.
An easy relocation component to Miami Oxford is part of many associate degrees offered at Miami Hamilton, including the SaturdaySelect program. Miami also negotiated agreements with other area universities for seamless transfer options toward bachelor degree programs.
“Miami Hamilton’s strength is in its highly qualified faculty and staff, who provide a one-on-one personal touch critical to student success,” Sanders added.
