Center for Workforce Development
The world of higher education is being reimagined and restructured to meet the diverse needs of students and professionals of all ages and interests. While a traditional four-year bachelor’s degree experience straight out of high school remains a desirable avenue for many, the ability to attain marketable skills and credentials when the time is right has never been easier.
