Pennsylvania Highlands Community College is pleased to announce that fully online programs in Business Management and General Studies will be available beginning in January.
Pennsylvania Highlands prides itself on providing broad access to higher education. Our online programs take flexibility to a new level, enabling students to complete their coursework anytime, anywhere. Online programs afford students with non-traditional schedules the opportunity to reach their educational goals and achieve success.
Our Business Management program prepares students for the work environment by focusing on the development of leadership qualities, effective management strategies, and critical thinking skills. Successful graduates of this program are qualified for a variety of entry-level management positions and may choose to transfer to a baccalaureate degree program at a four-year institution.
The General Studies program is considered our “start here, go anywhere” degree and offers maximum course flexibility. Students in General Studies work with their academic advisor to design a program of study which satisfies their unique objectives. This program is designed for students who are planning to transfer to a four-year institution, seeking personal enrichment, or who are uncertain about their choice of major.
In addition to these programs, the College also offers our Early Childhood Management and Leadership certificate in an online format. This certificate places students on the fast track to earning the Pennsylvania Director Credential.
