Degree completion programs can benefit a variety of nontraditional students who wish to return to school. In an effort to accommodate those who have acquired come college credits but have not earned a degree, a growing number of schools are offering accelerated tracks.

For example, George Fox University recently announced in a press release that it will launch an adult degree completion program at its Salem, Oregon campus. Those who wish to earn a bachelor's degree in social and behavioral studies may apply.

Coursework for the program - which is both campus-based and online - is designed to cover the stages of human development, family and group systems, issues in delivering services to special populations as well as ethical issues in human services.

"We have had renewed interest in the social and behavioral studies curriculum in the Salem area, and we are committed to providing those looking to enter, or who are already employed within, human services the education to deepen their understanding of people and to develop professionally," said Dan Predoehl, an adult degree programs enrollment counselor.

Graduates of the program may find employment in counseling or marriage and family therapy.
