Georgian Court University is launching two new health care degrees for the Lakewood campus in the fall: a new B.S. in Health Sciences and a B.A. in Health Profession Studies. They will expand to the university’s GCU@Hazlet location in early 2019.
Most evenings, GCU@Hazlet classrooms and study areas are packed with working adults focused on finishing their degrees in English, education, interdisciplinary studies, psychology, and business administration. As adult learners, they are attracted to the streamlined structure of GCU@Hazlet, which allows them to manage their college classes alongside family and work obligations—all at an affordable rate and at times that fit their busy lives. “No matter the motivation, GCU@Hazlet faculty welcome them into a community that cares, a community that focuses on learning, and a community that looks to lift students up,” said GCU enrollment VP Justin Roy. “Together, we work with students to see them cross that stage at Commencement, knowing they have just paved a new road.”
Honorees for the Georgian Court University Commencement 2018 Ceremony include a past member of the Georgian Court Board of Trustees, a three-time honoree of the “NJBIZ Power 50” list, and a high school superintendent.
